From Daemonizer to Spring Boot: Unlocking Developer Velocity

This talk was held on Wednesday, November 20, 2019

Daemonizer is Indeed’s in-house Java application framework, providing developer facilities around the Spring framework and Tomcat. Ten years ago, Daemonizer provided a lightweight alternative to JEE containers and did a great job of meeting our needs. However, keeping an in-house framework of this nature in sync with industry standards became a full-time job — one we haven’t kept up. Our framework has fallen behind many of the readily available, off-the-shelf open source alternatives. Enter Spring Boot 2: an open source, Java-based application framework we have decided to replace Daemonizer with after exploring the pros and cons of building or buying a framework necessary to meet our current needs.
