For every step in deploying microservices in Java, developers need to consider what’s right for their application. One of the biggest decisions? Choosing the right microservices framework. In our article today, we’ll give a brief overview of four popular Java microservices frameworks and discuss their relative strengths and shortcomings.
The latest expert opinions, articles, and guides for the Java professional.
Introduced in JDK 13, the text blocks preview language feature introduce a way for developers to predictably format multi-line string literals while avoiding most escape sequences.
Microservices are gaining traction for developers, and many that haven’t already implemented this architecture are considering doing so. But how do you know when to use microservices and when it’s not the right choice for you?
Switch Expressions, introduced under JEP 325 and refined under JEP 354, are an application of the classic Java switch statement in expression form – which allows developers to yield values.
Deploying microservices has become increasingly popular in the development world, with many developers either in the process of transitioning from their existing monolithic architecture or planning to in the future. For developers deploying microservices in Java, this process is often linked with a shift from the monolith.
JRebel 2019.2.0 is now available! It adds support for Java 13, DropWizard, and Thorntail, improves support for Apache Camel, and provides updated support for many frameworks and IDEs.

Jython is a version of the Python programming language that runs on the Java platform. It allows users to write programs in Python and compile them to Java bytecodes that run directly on a Java Virtual Machine, or JVM. It’s similar to other JVM languages like; Scala, Kotlin, Groovy, or Clojur.
More developers are moving from monolith to microservices architecture to support increasingly complex software structures. In Java development, there are various frameworks available for working with microservices, including Spring Boot, DropWizard, Micronaut, and Spark. As a relatively new technique, real-world use of microservices in Java environments remains somewhat a mystery.
With JRebel 2019.1.0, we have full support for the just-released Java 12. Discover what else the latest JRebel release has in store.
