    Overview

    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.

    Thorntail offers an innovative approach to packaging and running Java EE applications by packaging them with just enough of the server runtime to "java -jar" your application. It's MicroProfile compatible, too.
