HHJ-4853 Eclipse MicroProfile: Enterprise Java Microservices, one year on | Devoxx
ssj Server Side Java

Auditorium

Thursday from 2:50 PM til 3:40 PM

Moderator Ken Finnigan is joined by special guests for this panel session delving into Eclipse MicroProfile.

Eclipse MicroProfile is bridging the gap between Enterprise Java and Microservices, fostered through open collaboration of the Enterprise Java community. Though still being in its infancy, great strides have been taken already with many more to follow.

The panel will briefly cover what has been achieved in the first year since inception, and also cover upcoming releases and proposals being worked on in the community. Most of the BOF will be our panel answering questions from you, the community, about where Eclipse MicroProfile is heading and general discussion of ideas that the community considers important for Eclipse MicroProfile.
