New Lightbend Survey of 2,000 Java and Scala Developers Reveals Shake-Up in Enterprise Application Architecture

SAN FRANCISCO, CA — (Marketwired) — 09/14/16 — Lightbend (formerly Typesafe), the company behind the Reactive Platform that includes the Akka, Play and Lagom Frameworks as well as the Scala programming language, today announced the results of a new survey of 2,151 Java Virtual Machine (JVM) developers and IT professionals. The survey — conducted in summer 2016 — was launched to discover: correlations between development trends and IT infrastructure trends, how organizations at the forefront of digital transformation are modernizing their applications, and real production usage break-downs of today–s most buzzed about emerging developer technologies.

Among other key findings, the found that:

— the old way of deploying applications (12-36 month release cycles) does not meet the new requirements for scaling modern applications built with Agile methodology for distributed computing.

— Teams working in Continuous Development / Continuous Integration pipelines and releasing within sprints are finding great success with Microservices.

— JVM developers are moving off of traditional Java application servers and favoring containers as the new way to package and deploy.

— Machine Learning and Analytics are the initial killer apps, but the entire nature of app dev is transforming based on data use cases.

— Speed and performance has supplanted data volumes (i.e., “big” data) as the key concern. Low latency and resilience are key requirements for applications built for fast data, and are further driving the Reactive agenda.

“Developers and Datacenter Operators are pursuing similar concepts in parallel today,” said Mark Brewer, CEO of Lightbend. “While the Reactive movement encapsulates the sort of flexibility and resilience that the modern application is required to achieve, actually running these applications in production is pushing operations to become more elastic and lighter weight as well. Fast Data and Cloud flexibility are two trends that are driving this renaissance in converging Dev and Ops and driving new patterns into application architecture.”

The captures both Java and Scala adoption patterns around:

JVM language use

Microservices adoption

Fast Data adoption

Data processing technologies in production

Real-time vs. batch processing workload break-down

Container adoption

Java EE App Server usage

“Cloud-Native” priorities

Cloud vs. On-Prem vs. Hybrid workload break-downs

Average #–s of concurrent users for apps in production

Popularity of big data frameworks like Spark, Kafka, Cassandra, Akka and others

Data streaming adoption patterns
