Building serverless, event-driven Java applications on AWS

This workshop is a continuous review of ready-to-use templates, examples, and patterns of serverless applications on Amazon Web Services, focusing on serverless. We will use Infrastructure as Java Code: AWS Cloud Development Kit (CDK v2) for Java and use Maven repositories to quickly build and share the code.

In this workshop, I won't implement each application from scratch, rather than walk through already prepared ready-to-use examples and templates reflecting common patterns and adjust them to more specific use cases.

All changes, attendees' requests, and suggestions will be committed to a git repository in real-time.


Basic AWS, database and Java SE / Java EE / Jakarta EE / MicroProfile experience (I will use Java concepts to explain FaaS, HA, functions, triggers, events, containers, metrics, configuration, tables, buckets and relations).


After a a short introduction to AWS basics (VPC, IAM, accounts, storage and organizations), we will cover the following templates and use cases:

  • Building event-driven applications with AWS Fargate, AWS Lambda and Java
  • Cost-driven and even-driven choices
  • Killer use case for: SQS, SNS, MSK, EventBridge and Kinesis
  • Change Data Capture with DynamoDB and Kinesis
  • Event-driven vs. message-oriented architectures
  • Serverless event-sourcing
  • Scale to zero strategies
  • Serverless MSK (Kafka), Kinesis, SNS, SQS, EventBridge provisioning with AWS Cloud Development Kit (CDK) v2
  • ...and most popular questions, topics and approaches from

In this advanced workshop I will discuss and implement cloud native Java / MicroProfile and event-driven applications on ECS Fargate and AWS Lambda. All AWS resources will be provisioned with Maven and CDK v2 Java edition. As a reference, you will get a GIT repository with all snippets and solutions, as well as prepared sample applications.

A developer laptop with pre-installed Java 11 (AWS Lambda currently only runs on Corretto 11), GIT-client, AWS CLI, and Maven 3 is required to run the examples. You can run the examples if you like, or "hack" along with me, but taking notes is perfectly viable as well.

I will use my AWS account to live deploy the applications and explain various AWS services.

Environment requirements / prerequisites.

I/we will spend 80% of the time in code--it also highly depends on your questions.
