Java is the most widely used enterprise programming language. It is a technology with nearly 30 years worth of development - providing a stable, mature and efficient virtual-machine-based runtime for executing server-side applications. Java support on cloud platforms is essential for enterprises looking to adopt serverless technology

Uses of Serverless Java

Nowadays Java has been substituted by other programming languages in many fields, but still is the base of small apps that run internally in many systems, and is the core of the coding for apps in Android smartphones and devices. Java is also used as a connector between environments, for example, to connect to a MySQL database. https://nimbella.com/blog/how-to-connect-to-the-3rd-party-database-such-as-mysql-at-nimbella-example-in-java As well, Java is still really useful to create whole applications that run in a single computer or through a network of computers. Java can also be combined with other frameworks to create apps of your choice.

How to Deploy Serverless Java with our platform

We can deploy java apps easily into Nimbella Serverless Platform with these steps below:

  1. Code your business logic such that Java's main method consumes user requests as JSON object parameters.
  2. Process User Request in Java as per your business logic.
  3. Return the processed Response to the user as a JSON object.
  4. Wrap your java project as per Nimbella's directory structure recommendation for deployment.
  5. Configure the YAML file for deployment and deploy it through Nimbella's CLI.

Serverless Java App file structure

Here’s an example of a typical directory structure of a serverless java maven project on Nimbella.

Serverless Java Maven project example

You can deploy your serverless Java code with us directly through our platform or also through a GitHub path.

If you are running the app through our console just type:

nim project deploy

And if you want to deploy through a GitHub path the command is the following:

github:
git@github.com:
https://github.com

so as an example of deployment through GitHub the code would be:

nim project deploy github:nimbella/demo-projects/visits
nim project deploy git@github.com:/my-account/my-repo-with-project/#dev

Data about our Serverless platform for Java Apps

copied

The founders of Nimbella had first in mind to make things easy, safe and quick for any developer or team of developers wanting to code Serverless. That is why when you decide to deploy Java apps through our platform you get:

  • A dedicated and SSL-secured domain name for your Java apps. If you are a big team of developers and have extra needs, just let us know in private and we can extend those capabilities for you
  • Static front-end assets deployed automatically from a global CDN
  • The team or developer gets back-ends that can be run on-demand, as many times as needed, almost instantly. There are no servers to maintain and take care of
  • A secure space inside the platform to upload files, with access limits as needed
  • The state of the app is recorded in a Redis key-value store, with data accessible from the private back-end offering near-to-zero latency
  • Workflow Builder for organizing long-running tasks within the developing team or for yourself
  • CLI and workbench tools to manage Nimbella services, build projects and deploy your Java apps
  • The developer working through Nimbella can code the app once in one or more clouds and run it through the local machine
  • Nimbella serverless infrastructure allows you to implement APIs from third-party apps in a few clicks
  • Nimbella infrastructure integrates gracefully with all the most famous public clouds (AWS, Google Cloud, Azure), with private clouds and also through a multi-cloud strategy: you can write the code once and deploy in all the clouds at the same time

FAQ’s about our Java Serverless integration

How do I get started?

copied

Our starter accounts are free: you just have to sign up to get started. If you need more capabilities you can upgrade from Starter account to Pro account at any time.

Which tier/account type is best for me?

copied

If you are the only developer the Starter free account is likely the best match for you. The Starter account provides you with all the capabilities of the platform. On the other hand, if you are part of a small team of developers and/or you are working with multiple projects at the same time, we suggest you the Pro account.

What is Nimbella’s Playground and what can I do with it?

copied

The Playground allows you to try out a few capabilities of Nimbella’s serverless platform anonymously, without the need of signing up and for free. You can create, run and share up to 10 serverless functions in multiple languages like React, JS, Python, PHP, Go, Java, Swift and Typescript. However, the Playground has limits: maximum execution time is 3 seconds and the function may not consume more than 128 MB. If you start trying out the Playground and you decide to sign up for an account you can export the functions you have coded into your account.
