How to secure microservices? Eclipse MicroProfile JWT (https://microprofile.io/) is the answer. MicroProfile JWT designed a mechanism to propagate the security state from clients to services or event services to services by using security tokens. This session will give you a quick overview on the MicroProfile JWT design, followed by a live demo of 2 microservices communication by passing on the JSON web token, running on Open Liberty (https://openliberty.io/). Come to this session to understand the technology and learn how to use it.
Microservices are hot topic these days. And it's not just another hype, but the reality - the new deployment and delivery model of scaling and maintaining single app features lead to completely new development model.
Most of the platform vendors from the Java space followed the trends and came up with their solutions. As always Java EE was accused for being late for the party. The Eclipse MicroProfile initiative is a step in the right direction. There vendors work together to define what a microservice runtime is and implement it on top of standard technologies.
Join this session to learn more about the initiative, its current state and future outlooks. We'll guide you through the road of developing your own microservices. Then we'll show you how you can run them on each microprofile supporting runtime. We will start almost from zero and gradually add new features of a real-world application, showcasing the different aspects of MicroProfile.
