Comparison Summary
Question: Which is better - Spring Boot or Eclipse MicroProfile?
Answer: Springboot is a Java-based solution that is very popular and easy to use. You can use it to build applications quickly and confidently. Springboot has a very large, helpful learning community, which means you can find help easily. This solution is multi-threaded; when the main thread is consumed, others are used concurrently. This is a key advantage, as it makes Springboot very useful when performing long, repetitive functions. Springboot saves time on development and increases overall efficiency. You have to have a lot of Spring system knowledge to use it successfully. We would like to see security simplified and for there to be better interaction options. Eclipse Microprofile is a collection of Java EE APIs and technologies that together form a core baseline microservice with the goal of delivering application portability across numerous runtimes. With Eclipse Microprofile, you can build quickly and have rapid development and iterations, which leads to a high-frequency release cadence. Eclipse Microprofile's ultimate goal is to supply the Java Community Process (JCP) with specification requests (JSR) with sensible approaches and implementations that developers and businesses want and can depend on. Eclipse Microprofile is keenly focused on bringing microservices to Java enterprise environments. It would be great if Eclipse could provide some guidelines on how best to use Eclipse Microprofile. There are so many options. it can be confusing for the complete novice. The interface could use some tweaking as sometimes it is a bit slow. Conclusion We like Eclipse Microprofile best and believe it suits our needs perfectly. Eclipse has proven to be very forward-thinking in all things Java and lead the way in making microservices easier to handle, even for an enterprise environment. Eclipse Microprofile has a very progressive business model and we like where they are going.

    Many innovative "microservice" Enterprise Java environments and frameworks already exist in the Java ecosystem. These projects are creating new features and capabilities to address microservice architectures -- leveraging both Java EE and non-Java EE technologies.

    The goal of the Eclipse MicroProfile project is to iterate and innovate in short cycles to propose new common APIs and functionality, get community approval, release, and repeat. Eventually, the outputs of this project could be submitted to the Eclipse Jakarta EE, JCP, OpenJDK or any relevant standards body.

    Spring Boot is designed to get developers up and running as quickly as possible, with minimal upfront configuration of Spring. Spring Boot takes an opinionated view of building production-ready applications. Make implementing modern application best practices an intuitive and easy first practice! Build microservices with REST, WebSocket, Messaging, Reactive, Data, Integration, and Batch capabilities via a simple and consistent development experience.
