Before we begin, I’d like to start by saying that this is not an introduction to microservices. Much has been written about the microservices paradigm and monolithic hell. If what you’re after is a good introduction, look no further than NginX’s introduction to microservices or Microservices: a definition to this architectural term by Martin Fowler and James Lewis. Instead, we’re going to talk about WSO2 Microservices Server. At WSO2, we’ve put together a lightweight, high-performance microservices runtime with a simple programming model for developing Java based microservices. It’s new, starts in under 300 milliseconds, and of course, integrates with our Data Analytics Server for additional insight. Let’s get started.
