We must admit that JavaOne 2017 in San Francisco got wide resonance: The great number of participants were actively involved in the conference, talking about Java's role in transforming the way people work and live in the digital era. The world’s largest gathering of Java developers saw discussions about the latest runtime updates, container-based solutions, and serverless architectures that help developers to build modern, distributed applications to meet the needs of their projects.With over 12 million developers all over the world running Java and more than 1 billion downloads each year (following Oracle), Java remains the world’s most popular programming language. Java is also the #1 developer choice for cloud, with over 21 billion cloud-connected Java virtual machines.
“We want the next decade to be Java first, Java always.”
— Mark Cavage Vice President, Product Development at Oracle

This year, Ruslan Synytsky, Jelastic CEO and co-founder, gladly participated as a stage speaker with a session on the decomposition process of legacy Java EE applications, which attracted the interest of many conference visitors and later grew into an informal chatting and discussion at the developer lounge zone.
You can review this highly technical presentation with a real example GlassFish application:
Taking Java EE to the Clouds: Demo Video
During a joint talk about moving Java EE projects to the cloud, Reza Rahman and Rodrigo Bortoloto made a review of the PaaS solutions. And Rodrigo showed a demo using Jelastic as the example of the platform with user-friendly UI that makes the entry point extremely easy.
“Jelastic is fantastic,” he said – maybe we’ll use that statement as our new motto Thanks, Rodrigo!
