Are you familiar with Project Helidon? It’s an open source Java microservices framework introduced by Oracle in September of 2018. As Helidon project lead Dmitry Kornilov explains in his article Helidon Takes Flight, "It’s possible to build microservices using Java EE, but it’s better to have a framework designed from the ground up for building microservices."
Helidon consists of a lightweight set of libraries that require no application server and can be used in Java SE applications. While these libraries can be used separately, using them in combination provides developers with a solid foundation on which to build microservices.
In this program we’ll dig into Project Helidon with a panel that consists of two people who are actively engaged in the project, and two community leaders who have used Helidon in development projects, and have also organized Helidon-focused Meet-Ups.
This program, #365, was recorded on Friday, March 8, 2019. Listen!
