Eclipse MicroProfile: A quest for a lightweight and modern enterprise Java platform
Many major vendors, including IBM, Red Hat and Payara, strive to provide lightweight and extensible runtimes to power microservices, cloud deployments and reactive architectures already. Their individual efforts are naturally followed by an open collaboration within the MicroProfile.io initiative.
I invite you to join the adventure with me and follow the quest for a new generation enterprise Java platform. We will explore what has happened recently in the world of enterprise Java, including the progress of the future Java EE specifications, and the features already provided by some interesting open-source projects. Afterward, we will discover what the MicroProfile.io initiative is, what it can bring to you, and how its future direction can be formed even with your contribution. As an active contributor in the MicroProfile Eclipse incubation project, I'll provide details about how to get started and what to expect in the near future, all illustrated by live coding and demonstrations.
