About this event

In this session Paul will discuss Oracle's offerings in the areas of microservices. These include the converged database which offers support for different data models and workloads in the same database while still providing the isolation appropriate for microservices. It also includes a new Oracle Backend for Spring Boot platform that makes it easy for Java developers using Spring Boot to set up and deploy a backend for dev/test/prod with just one click and automatically generate and bind Kubernetes, database, and messaging resources as well as observability for microservices in a single command thus enabling developers, DevOps, and Data engineers/DBAs, to easily build, deploy, monitor, and tune modern enterprise applications at scale. Finally, Paul will discuss advanced features that have been developed in the database messaging and transaction systems, such as transactional messaging and a saga coordinator, to handle the unique and complex requirements of event-driven data-centric microservices.
