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.
