Abstract:
The IBM WebSphere Application Server Liberty profile is a simplified, lightweight runtime for development and production use. It is simple to configure through a single XML file. It is dynamic and flexible - recomposing itself in response to configuration changes. It is extensible through the use of system programming interfaces. Its self-extracting Jar file makes it quick and easy to install. Configured with a basic web application, it starts in under five seconds. This makes it highly compatible with DevOps tools and cloud. Chef is one such tool. Chef embodies "infrastructure as code." Teams write code to describe how the machines in the infrastructure should be configured. As organizations scale out their development and production infrastructure, Chef will configure it all. Presenters introduce Chef and the part the IBM WebSphere Application Server Liberty profile Chef cookbooks play in standing-up a load balanced web application.
