Infinitely scalable microservices with Project Loom and Helidon

Virtual Room 1

15:40 - 16:20

New & Cool

Project Loom introduces VirtualThreads to OpenJDK. VirtualThreads are so lightweight that they are practically an unbounded resource. You can use as many as you like! Blocking I/O? No problem. Forget reactive and return to those simpler, joyful times of synchronous programing. In this talk you will learn about VirtualThreads and see our experimental result with Helidon, an open source microservices framework, to build a highly scalable microservice.
