Abstract: Cloud platforms offer diverse evolving programming and deployment models which require not only application code adaptation, but also retraining and changing developer mindsets. Such change is costly and is better served by automated tools. Subject of the study are automated FaaSification processes which transform conventional annotated Java methods into executable Function-as-a-Service units. Given the novelty of the problem domain, a key concern is the demonstration of feasibility within arbitrary boundaries of FaaS offerings and the measurement of resulting technical and pricing metrics. We contribute a suitable tool design called Termite with corresponding implementation in Java. The design is aligned with a generic transformation pipeline in which each step from code analysis over compilation to deployment and testing can be observed and measured separately. Our results show that annotations are suitable means for fine-grained configuration despite ceding control to the build system. Smaller Java projects can be FaaS-enabled with little effort. We expect FaaSification tools to become part of build chains on a wide scale once their current engineering shortcomings in terms of tackling more complex code are solved.
