Java Buildpack in 2017 [B] - Ben Hale, Pivotal
Over the years, the Java Experience team has worked hard to ensure that Cloud Foundry was the best place to run Java applications in the cloud. To that end, we ensure that every year adds new functionality, new integrations, and improves what's already there. This session will discuss some of the exciting new integrations as well as the recent improvements made to JVM memory calculation.
