Re: [] About Profiles

The "Servlet Only" idea in this StackOverflow article is a lead for a possible "Minimal" or "Web Light" profile.
Which I would complement by something along the lines of "REST Only" (pretty similar to MicroProfile 1.0 without the new stuff that was added there since) but not force either to implement the other unless they really need both. A combination plus some additional specs may be a new "Web Profile" or simply the existing Web Profile for compatibility.

Web Profile is still too "fat" why would some vendors have taken the trouble with MicroProfile? ;-)

Although "Micro" may be the wrong term here, given many of the MicroProfile features or "glue" to other external projects like Failsafe or Dropwizard (much like Spring ;-) etc. may never really be something to standardize and test via a (Jakarta EE) TCK harness at all, but there should be a smaller profile that does not force everyone who wants to expose a simple RESTful API to also implement Servlet, JSP, JSF and a whole lot of other stuff, see (it even includes EJB and JPA or JTA)

I am sorry, but from what I have read so far in the mailing list I have to ask.
Don't we already have the full and web profiles which, as far as I understand, serve the purposes already?
Today's full profile is the proposed legacy profile. Web profile is the new profile we are looking for.
Perhaps web profile is not ideal at the current state with big room of improvement, but we can do that. Don't we?

Once again, sorry. I have been following these emails with all of those perfect and great ideas, but I feel that we are almost reaching the same conclusion that have been reached before.

Best regards,
