What is the difference in deploying a typical JEE web application using AWS Lambda versus the standard AWS deployment process ?
I don't currently use either . I currenlty deploy to a remote server by dropping in a war file to a remote Tomcat or JBosss server.

What are other ways or organize or even orchestrate our service layer running AWS Lambda?
How we can manage the inventory for our existing functions in AWS there are preexisting tools or just amazon console?
Miles Davenport wrote:Hello Danilo,
I wanted your advice on the best way of keeping an Aws Lambda warmed up.
I understand that the first time a Lambda is called, the Serverless "environment" is warmed up, with a slight delay before code is executed.
To avoid this situation happening repeatedly, where there are surges of events, can you please recommend a strategy, which works, but is cost effective.
A heart beat which calls the Lambda every N seconds may be effective, but may also be costly.
Your thoughts are welcomed.
Lucian Revnic wrote:Hello,
What are your recommendation on motivating the operations team about migrating their infrastructure to AWS Lambda?
Also, what is your suggestion on a working process/tools where sys admins (non-developers) and developers can work together, if possible, on the same features.
For example non-developers prefer graphical tools meanwhile developers love to write code. What is the common ground for the two persona to work together?
Lanny Gilbert wrote:I took some time and quickly scanned the first chapter from Manning's site, as well as the AWS lambda site.
From what I could tell from that quick read, seems that AWS Lambda provides (more or less) the same functionality as AWS, but in a simpler manner using containers.
Is that fairly close?
Salil Wadnerkar wrote:I work in a typical backend heavy web application with apache solr and redis for quick searches, and DB caching. And our main web app calls services - all hosted in AWS. What benefit does AWS lambda offer in this setup, and secondly, how we can rearrange the pieces to derive greater benefit from AWS lambda service?
Magnus Eriksson wrote:What is the current status of container reuse and load performance when using Java for lambda programming?
Some time ago I did try making Lambda functions in Java but the first time the function was loaded it took several seconds to get a response. Has this improved?
How often must the function be called in order to keep the container loaded?
Mohamed Iqzas wrote:I am not aware of AWS except that it is a cloud platform for hosting applications.
Do we need to have only coding skills to develop applications using AWS lambda, or do we need some networking or configuration skills to host an application using AWS Lambda?
Sorry if the question looks very silly.
