Serverless computing with AWS Lambda, Part 1
See the original posting on JavaWorld
Serverless computing may be the hottest thing in cloud computing today, but what, exactly, is it? This two-part tutorial starts with an overview of serverless computing–from what it is, to why it’s considered disruptive to traditional cloud computing, and how you might use it in Java-based programming.
Following the overview, you’ll get a hands-on introduction to AWS Lambda, which is considered by many the premiere Java-based solution for serverless computing today. In Part 1, you’ll use AWS Lambda to build, deploy, and test your first Lambda function in Java. In Part 2, you’ll integrate your Lambda function with DynamoDB, then use the AWS SDK to invoke Lambda functions in a Java application.
