While there are likely a dozen or more Java-based microservice / cloud native initiatives in the industry, Eclipse MicroProfile provides a platform for Java developers to collaborate and innovate on areas of common interest. This BOF will give a short overview of MicroProfile and how it plans to optimize microservices for Enterprise Java, followed by a short Q&A to answer any clarifying questions, and the remainder of the time spent on collaborating to prioritize features for the next release.
While MicroProfile's first release is founded in Java EE (CDI + JSON-P + JAX-RS), it is not intended to remain a subset of Java EE 7 (or 8). The intent is to collaborate and innovate as a community in the context of a microservices architecture across the 5 (and growing) MicroProfile implementations today. The end goal of MicroProfile is to feed the Java Community Process (JCP) with JSR submissions backed by well-thought-out concepts and even implementations that developers and enterprises can rely on.
Come collaborate with your fellow MicroProfilers to move Enterprise Java microservices forward.
