This is my question for the author of the new book: "Architecting Modern Java EE Applications".
Looks like hope for the future. My question to you: what motivated you to take the time to write on this particular topic? I have seen fewer organizations embrace this technology than in the past. It is far from moribund in my view. Are there certain developments in JavaEE 8 that really excite you and convince you this is an excellent approach to modern problem-solving?
