At Devoxx US 2017, CDI Architect Emily Jiang discusses how to establish Java programming models to build the best microservices for the programming language, services that are portable among different application servers.

MicroProfile is the next step in the evolution of Enterprise Java technologies to support distributed application architectures based on RMI/IIOP, Web Services, and REST. It’s an open forum to optimize Enterprise Java for a microservices architecture by innovating across multiple implementations and collaborating on common areas of interest with a goal of standardization. The ultimate goal is to help optimize Enterprise Java for a microservices architecture.

In a BOF session at Devoxx with Red Hat’s John Clingan, “Eclipse MicroProfile: Accelerating the adoption of Java Microservices,” Emily explains why the Eclipse MicroProfile microservice initiative is great: It provides a platform for Java developers to collaborate and innovate on areas of common interest. The profile, currently a subset of Java EE, is not intended to remain a subset – the end goal is to feed the JCP with JSR submissions.
