Java EE Microservice platforms – which is best?
As a consultant, people ask “which is best?” all the time about all kinds of tools and technologies. The answer is always an unhelpful “it depends…” because there is never an objective answer. Really, a better question is “which is most appropriate?” This talk will investigate 3 ways of creating microservices in Java and compare and contrast the ways they work and the features they provide. During the presentation I’ll analyse Spring Boot, WildFly Swarm and Payara Micro ( with honourable mentions to Tomcat and embedded Jetty), go through the available options and demo the features/shortcomings of each.
