As Thomas Kurian told InfoWorld in July, Oracle has been busy drawing up a new road map for Java EE (Enterprise Edition) that will “modernize” the language for the cloud era. The JavaOne conference in September, supposedly, will reveal all.
Meanwhile, Pivotal and WSO2 already see themselves meeting the needs of modern enterprise Java by enabling Java microservices and cloud deployments. But how much of a role can third-party Java products actually play?
Pivotal, which now has jurisdiction over Spring Framework technologies for Java development, has already positioned its Spring Cloud libraries as a mechanism for microservices in Java, with such capabilities as service discovery, configuration management, and intelligent routing.
