Cloud native Java is top of mind for many of us in the
Eclipse Foundation community these days. It was a hot topic at the recent
inaugural JakartaOne Livestream event with at least three presentations
focusing on Eclipse MicroProfile’s powerful capabilities for
designing, building, and deploying enterprise Java microservices.
The ongoing excitement around MicroProfile and its role in
bringing microservices to enterprise Java environments is evident in the
articles we’re sharing with you in this edition of the newsletter.
In this issue of the newsletter, our community authors explain
the pros and cons of different microservice programming models and how to
use MicroProfile to incorporate key features, such as observability and
fault tolerance, into microservices architectures. They share information
about opportunities for Spring Boot developers to leverage Quarkus to
access MicroProfile capabilities and to combine MicroProfile and Jakarta
EE on the same application server. One author even takes a peek into the
future with a look at where MicroProfile is headed. We wrap up the issue
with highlights from the JakartaOne Livestream event.
We’re sure you’ll agree we have a stellar line-up
of interesting and informative content from some of the leading minds in
Don’t Forget… EclipseCon Is Fast Approaching
EclipseCon Europe is
just around the corner (Oct 21-24 in Ludwigsburg, Germany), so if you
haven’t already registered, be sure to do that now.
We’re particularly excited about Community Day on October 21. This event is a must for everyone
who’s interested in our cloud native projects. You’ll have
great opportunities to get together with other community members to share
ideas, learn from their experiences, and participate in workshops. This
year, we’ll be discussing potential collaboration between Jakarta EE
and MicroProfile, among other topics, so you won’t want to miss it.
We’ve also planned an evening event so you’re sure to have
lots of fun!
Check the EclipseCon Community Day wiki for more information about what’s
planned so far and to add your ideas for additional discussion topics.
Congrats to the Jakarta EE Community
As a final note, I just wanted to emphasize how extremely proud everyone
at the Eclipse Foundation was when our executive director, Mike
Milinkovich, accepted the Duke’s Choice Award on behalf of the
Jakarta EE community at the Oracle Code One conference in mid-September.
Read more about the significance of this recognition for our community here.
The Duke’s Choice Awards celebrate invaluable innovation
in Java-based technologies and contributions to Java, and our Jakarta EE
Working Group was recognized for its outstanding open source contributions
to the Java ecosystem. Duke’s Choice Award winners are selected by
members of Oracle’s Java Platform Group, which makes this
recognition a particularly meaningful achievement.
