DataStax: Why Frameworks Define Java’s Cloud Native Future

9/15/2020
Java remains one of the most popular and trusted programming languages, but it is not necessarily well-suited for everything, including cloud native and containerized applications. While Java’s elegance and versatility is reflected in how it can be written once and run practically anywhere, the language was geared mainly for creating application stacks decades ago when it was first created. Cloud native and Kubernetes, of course, are different animals compared to the stacks of decades past....
