Monolith to Microservices Workshop

September 23, 202111:00 AM - 1:00 PM(GMT-05:00) Central Time (US & Canada)

Modernizing existing legacy applications will give the ability to build and deliver innovative capabilities rapidly while improving developer productivity. The most common pattern for developers is to move a monolith application to the cloud and refactoring/breaking it down into small and loosely coupled microservices. 
In this hands-on workshop, you will learn how to:

  • Migrate an existing legacy Java™ EE application from Weblogic to JBoss® EAP using Red Hat® Migration Toolkit for Applications (MTA)
  • Deploy the result to OpenShift® to create a Fast Moving Monolith Application
  • Incrementally refactor/break down this Fast Moving Monolith into Services with Red Hat Runtimes

Who should attend?

  • The workshop is ideal for Java developers, architects, and developer team leads interested in learning more about the latest technologies for modern application development.


  • Lab materials and software will be provided. Attendees must bring a laptop with Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer/Edge 10+, or Safari 9+ installed.
  • It is preferred to not be on corporate VPN during the workshop to prevent connectivity issues with the lab
Presenter: Shelby Thomas, Senior Specialist Solutions Architect
