Nowadays, JVM-based applications can benefit from elasticity and density of container technology. However, there are still some issues that prevent unleashing the full potential of Java and containers “marriage.”
Releasing unused but committed Heap memory by the major JVM implementations based on OpenJDK, in most cases, is not performed automatically, or requires specific knowledge to be configured.T. Fydorenchyk
Performance and price are two big considerations in application hosting that always matter. And, often, we question ourselves on how to decrease the spends, without affecting the performance of your apps at the same time. In this article, we’d like to address automatic memory management for Java applications hosted with Jelastic using garbage collection.
Let’s clarify what garbage collection is, what it does for Java applications and how it works within Jelastic PaaS.T. Fydorenchyk
In most minds, microservices is an approach to make a traditional monolithic system more structured, dividing it into logical components that correspond to different functional areas of application.
Thus, acting as a microservice, each component becomes self-contained, easily scaled, maintained and even upgraded without affecting the overall system.
Also, with a microservice architecture, you can use a software written in different programming languages, including Java.
Such freedom attracts but may frighten at the same time.T. Fydorenchyk
In this article, we’ll describe how to install Jenkins cluster with slave nodes auto-discovering and self-registering inside a master node.
Jelastic PaaS implemented this solution in Jenkins DevOps Pack that can be installed from the Marketplace or through environment setup wizard as a New Environment.
In this tutorial we’ll cover both. Also, you will find out how to build a simple Java project hosted on GitHub using Jelastic Maven plugin.T. Fydorenchyk
