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.
Open Liberty is built on a foundation of Java EE and Eclipse Microprofile and lets you run only the features your app needs.
In addition to support for the open source Open Liberty runtime, Open Liberty Support also includes support for Java EE, Eclipse Microprofile, and Eclipse OpenJ9 JVM when used with Open Liberty.
Support for Open Liberty gives you 24x7x364 access to IBM’s world-class support and the development team that created Open Liberty.
Open Liberty is the most flexible server runtime available to Java developers. Work at lightspeed in a lightweight environment and build cloud-native Java apps and microservices.
