Java applications have been a central technology for enterprises for two decades. This wealth of data, functionality, and knowledge are critical to enterprises. With Java-based applications, modern development can build on a platform that enables cloud-native architectures while simultaneously supporting existing applications. This combination of traditional enterprise-wide monoliths and cloud-based application deployment allows organizations to take advantage of existing knowledge and resources while actively moving toward newer application models.

Organizations are at a strategic crossroads. According to IDC analysts,1
two-thirds of CEOs will
center their corporate strategies around digital transformation initiatives. The goal of digital
transformation is only partly to make existing functions more effective. The greater goal is to be
able to do new things and use existing data in new, better ways.
Yet, 72% of current IT spending2—and the focus of IT resources—is on maintaining existing
systems. This creates tension between what needs to be done today and what should be done
for the future.
Middle-tier applications, according to IDC,3
are the core of a digital transformation strategy
because they provide data integration, messaging, and application programming interface (API)
management. Middle-tier applications also provide a platform for application development and
management that can handle traditional enterprise applications and cloud-native, distributed
Specifically, a Java™ EE-based application platform can
Microservices architecture is a new architectural style for creating loosely coupled but autonomous services. Emerging trends in technology—such as DevOps, Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), containers, and continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) methods—let organizations create and manage these modular systems on an unprecedented scale that exceeds earlier approaches like service-oriented architecture (SOA). But organizations that refactor monolithic applications into microservices experience widely varying degrees of success. The key to using microservices effectively is a solid understanding of how and why organizations should use microservices to build applications

role-based security and interactive testing.
The CA Live API Creator Reactive Logic model yields systems that are highly scalable and reliable. Its optimized services
run more efficiently and with less fragility than services manually coded by skilled developers and architects.
Get under the hood: This technical note describes how to transform XML response into a JavaT-usable response by creating Plain Old Java Objects (POJOs) and calling JAXB's unmarshal method. Simplify how to send requests to create new instances based on images that request parameters from Java classes.
Zoom out to the bigger picture, though, and you see that Facebook is just one channel. If you use Skype, Slack, Kik, and digital voice assistants, you’ll have to build six or eight of these endpoints straight away. And chatbots are being asked to handle ever more complex responses, so you better build on a platform of machine learning and natural language processing to keep up.
That’s why the question enterprise developers should be asking is not “Which chatbot service do I start with?” but “Which platform will let me crank out a chatbot today and also support multiple channels and integrate with back-end systems as these chatbots take off?”
