Liberty is a lightweight Java™ runtime that is built by using modular features. It is available as both open source and commercial offerings.

In this course, you learn how to use Liberty, Jakarta EE, and MicroProfile to build a RESTful microservice application. MicroProfile is an open-source specification that defines new standards and APIs to accelerate and simplify the creation of microservices. You also explore other features of Liberty and developing microservices applications.

In the hands-on exercises, you build a microservice application, containerize it, and then deploy it on Kubernetes.


The primary audience for this course is the Application Developer.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. Its a cost effective option. One on one training can be delivered too, at reasonable rates.

Submit an enquiry from any page on this site and let us know you are interested in the requirements box, or simply mention it when we contact you.
