Which Version of JDK Should I Use?
Amazon Corretto OpenJDK distribution
- Amazon Corretto No-cost, multiplatform, production-ready distribution of OpenJDK. Corretto comes with long-term support that will include performance enhancements and security fixes. Amazon runs Corretto internally on thousands of production services and Corretto is certified as compatible with the Java SE standard. With Corretto, you can develop and run Java applications on popular operating systems, including Linux, Windows, and macOS.
- Amazon has been putting a lot of effort into Java. One of the central themes has been the reduction of latency. - youtube: Amazon Corretto, A Journey into Latency Reduction Corretto is a multi-platform, production-ready distribution of OpenJDK, supported by Amazon. We will talk about the Corretto project, it’s principals, and walk through examples that drove performance gains, latency reduction, and cost reduction in some of the biggest services in AWS.

Java Collections Interview Questions
Java Programming Models (Frameworks)
- Best Java Frameworks Solutions The best Java Frameworks vendors are Apache Spark, Spring Boot, Oracle Application Development Framework (Oracle ADF), Jakarta EE, and Open Liberty. Apache is the top solution according to IT Central Station reviews and rankings. One reviewer writes: “Fast performance and has an easy initial setup”, and another reviewer writes: “Easy to use and is capable of processing large amounts of data”. The 2nd best product is Spring Boot. A user writes: “Very smooth implementation; excellent features for monitoring and tracking network calls “, and another reviewer writes: “Makes it difficult to support a specific functionality in a user-friendly manner, but simplifies application deployment”.

- Eclipse MicroProfile Project The Eclipse MicroProfile project is aimed at
optimizing Enterprise Java for the microservices architecture.
- Many innovative “microservice” Enterprise Java environments and frameworks already exist in the Java ecosystem. These projects are creating new features and capabilities to address microservice architectures – leveraging both Java EE and non-Java EE technologies.
- The goal of the Eclipse MicroProfile project is to iterate and innovate in short cycles to propose new common APIs and functionality, get community approval, release, and repeat. Eventually, the outputs of this project could be submitted to the Eclipse Jakarta EE, JCP, OpenJDK or any relevant standards body.

Eclipse MicroProfile makes it easier Spring Boot or MicroProfile for Java microservices apps? Choose the path of least resistance. The Spring Boot and MicroProfile frameworks have many of the same goals (i.e., you can do everything in MicroProfile that you can do in Spring Boot). Both of them are built on top of the same core APIs; even though there are differences in some of the APIs, the work they do is similar.

Imagine needing to spend less😉— Sanne (@SanneGrinovero) July 2, 2021
Guess what minimum heap size you need to run a @QuarkusIO 2.0 *on JVM* to run a simple CRUD endpoint? (no toy: including @Hibernate , @resteasy, Jackson, JTA transactions, DB connection pool, caching, @vertx_project ,Netty, CDI via ArC, ...)
I'm observing @QuarkusIO for a long time. I think it's time to consider migration from Spring Boot into Quarkus especially if you develop on the Kubernetes-native platform. You may expect some tips in the near future - smth similar to #SpringBootTip series some months ago.— Piotr Mińkowski (@piotr_minkowski) September 2, 2021
Quarkus Tip 💡— Piotr Mińkowski (@piotr_minkowski) September 8, 2021
You can deploy the @QuarkusIO application to #Kubernetes without creating any #YAMLs manually. To do that you should include the Quarkus Kubernetes module, use dedicated application properties, and enable deployment during your Maven build. 👇👇👇

Quarkus Tip 💡— Piotr Mińkowski (@piotr_minkowski) September 9, 2021
You can easily build and run a native Quarkus @graalvm image on OpenShift using a single `oc` command and `ubi-quarkus-native-s2i` image builder. Such a build is performed fully on the cluster side. 👇
