In this article, we simplify and explain the importance of Cloud. It also includes a section on J2EE web programming on Cloud explaining why J2EE deserves to be on Cloud along with how Java enunciates its presence in the Cloud. Our data has moved to the Cloud; thereby, igniting fight as to which technology will seize Cloud computing? Java stands right in the front to seize Cloud. Why Java when we have experts? J2EE applications development leverages rich web front-end across multiple devices. There are various reasons to adopt Java, which will be seen in the future parts of this article, upon understanding Cloud.
Cloud is a buzz word. Check out any app development website, you are sure to see a word “Cloud”. Hear them talking of developing, hosting or moving apps on cloud. Entrepreneurs look forward to show familiarity or expertise in Cloud.
The reason for adopting cloud is quite specific. With organization’s growth, there’s a data growth. Majority of organizations are troubled managing oodles of legacy data. Research says, about two-third of the IT expenditure is spent on managing legacy systems. And only one-third of the IT spending is used in developing new functionality. Therefore, it is clear that organizations are burdened with un-disposable data for which they need Cloud.
Basically, Cloud does all that hosting companies used to do; however, Cloud offers much more than those companies. It offers easy and unlimited app scalability for rapid growth of the organizations. In return, it takes away the hardware management and IT risks from you.
Explaining J2EE Web programming on Cloud
J2EE web programming stands for Java web applications development for enterprises. This is different than Java standard edition. Why? Java understands that organizations need more security and better practices that can make their business comfortable. J2EE web application development has always been highly scalable, light-weighted, integrated and engaging.
J2EE is simple for deployment. It is fault-tolerant and it contains added libraries to make it simple to run modular components on application server. It consists of a large J2EE developers‘ community. J2EE professionals make sure to keep it updated. J2EE is not a programming language, but a group of specification, frameworks, technologies, etc., which makes it an ideal application development platform to be deployed on Cloud.
Looking at the Cloud buzz, many reputed firms have launched hosting and development services for Cloud; however, only Amazon supports J2EE, outsourcing services, on cloud. It supports as IaaS. Stax–a new startup–would assist Java web applications as PaaS. It assists Java professionals to conduct their task without worrying about managing the OS, Web server, or Java containers.
There is more to J2EE web development. News reveals a launch of Java open-source library for managing cloud providers. This library is said to get J2EE developers started in the Cloud and reuse Java. It consists of APIs that provide abstractions to J2EE developers. There are two abstractions–Compute and Blobstore. One helps bootstrap machine in the cloud while the other manages key-value data, respectively.
Custom J2EE web application development and hosting on Cloud offers series of other benefits as well. Automatic scaling is one of the main benefits, which means automatic adjustment of the resource of the software stack element. It automatically adjusts the cluster size according to the load. Java with Cloud also offers on-demand/ infinite resources and avoids overbooking.
