The Eclipse MicroProfile project is an exciting new open source community that is defining the next evolution of enterprise Java. This open collaboration, with some of the key Java enterprise vendors, is defining how developers can use Java EE technologies in microservice architectures. The community started just over one year ago and so far, it's made significant progress.
For this issue of the Eclipse Newsletter, I am proud to introduce you to the Eclipse MicroProfile community with these eight great articles. To start read two articles introducing Eclipse MicroProfile, one addressing security, and another focusing on service discovery. Read on to learn about the sub-projects Eclipse MicroProfile Fault Tolerance and Eclipse MicroProfile Config before brushing up on Eclipse MicroProfile's history and its progress over the last year. Last but not least, read a summary of the 5 things you need to know about MicroProfile.
I hope everyone will take the time to learn about MicroProfile. This is an open community so don't be shy - share your feedback and participate!
This year at JavaOne, we will be showcasing MicroProfile in the Eclipse Foundation booth and many of the Java vendors booths. Find us and maybe get a cool MicroProfile t-shirt or hoodie.
I'd like to thank the Eclipse MicroProfile community for contributing these articles. It was a great pleasure to work with each author and the community as a whole. Special thank you to John Clingan for being my co-editor and reviewing the articles.
Grab a coffee and read on!
