MicroProfile, which provides a technology blueprint to outfit enterprise Java for microservices deployments, has become an Eclipse Foundation project.
Now known as Eclipse MicroProfile, the effort makes it easier for developers to use Java technologies and APIs to build microservices. "The goal of the project is to create a community to add new features and capabilities to Java EE that address microservices architectures," said Ian Skerrett, Eclipse vice president of marketing. "At some point the work could end up in the official Java EE standard via a Java JSR (Java Specification Request), but there is nothing concrete at this time." A MicroProfile representative in September had predicted Eclipse jurisdiction for the project.
