Microservices - Are your Frameworks Ready?
The term "MicroServices" has become a marketing buzzword filled with a variety of different meanings. This actually not-so-new service-oriented approach to system architecture promises great advantages compared to its monolithic counter parts but it also comes with a lot of new challenges which developers didn't find themselves faced with before. In this session we'd like to highlight those challenges that arise in practice and take a look at how different JVM-based application development stacks try to tackle them. We will identify gaps and discuss whether its reasonable at all to expect your framework to bridge them. Examples shown will include Dropwizard, Spring Cloud and Play2 Scala.
