The infamous Spring Boot is one of the available frameworks for developing micro services on a cloud-based architecture. Due to its well-established community and proven concept, there doesn’t seem to be a competitor around.
However, there is a competitor on the rise: The Eclipse MicroProfile. It provides a specification for building microservices based on Java EE.
Can Eclipse MicroProfile compete with Spring Boot and finally allow developers to build micro services in the Java EE ecosystem? Furthermore, will this specification be a game changer and take micro services to the next level?
