Lightbend Kalix Java SDK promises to accelerate cloud-native application development

Lightbend, a provider of cloud-native microservice frameworks for cloud and edge applications, has released a Java software development kit for Kalix, a NoOps Platform-as-a-Service. The company says developers can leverage this Java SDK to build next-gen cloud-native applications for mission-critical use cases in less time.

“Despite the immense benefits the cloud native world promises, the complexity of Kubernetes, the ongoing lack of developer talents, and the sheer volume of operational requirements converge to present a seemingly overwhelming set of challenges for today’s businesses. Kalix delivers a solution for all of these critical issues, and today’s Java SDK only makes its implementation even easier,” says Jonas Bonér, the founder and CEO of Lightbend.

According to the company, Lightbend Kalix lets developers build large-scale, high-performance microservices and APIs without the need for operations. The solution helps enterprises overcome challenges related to complex legacy architecture that prevents them from creating back-end services and APIs that can efficiently handle large amounts of data, Lightbend executives say.

The company claims that Kalix Platform-as-a-Service relieves developers from configuring databases and data caching. The platform handles these functions automatically, enabling developers to concentrate on building applications without dealing with the challenges of building and managing distributed systems.

Why microservice architecture for edge computing?

Microservice architecture is used for individual applications for frequent changes and deployments. The application’s architecture involves breaking it down into multiple microservices, each with independent functionality and data sources that can deploy individually.

Microservice has become the standard approach for developing enterprise-grade and cloud-native IoT applications. This approach is suitable for edge computing environments that involve IoT edge devices using diverse communication protocols. It is not restricted by programming language, hardware or platform.

The microservice architecture is a flexible approach for programming edge applications. It enables microservices to be deployed in virtual and container-based environments. The containers contain only the necessary microservices and their dependencies rather than the entire operating system. This feature makes the containers lightweight and ideal for edge computing applications, where computing power is often limited and should be used only for essential tasks.
