RHOAR: Wildfly Swarm vs Spring Boot Microservices – Part 1

Introduction

Red Hat Openshift Application Runtime (RHOAR) comes with a number of frameworks/toolkits for implementing microservices. In previous articles on Vert.x (Part1 and Part2), I compared Vert.x with Fuse Integration Services (FIS). I am going to compare two other popular frameworks that come with RHOAR in this article. They are: Wildfly Swarm and Spring Boot. I am going to show you how to implement the same database access application implemented in Vert.x and FIS in my two previous articles so that you can compare the level of difficulty for using these frameworks. This is kind of an unfair comparison as most of you are either JEE or Spring developers and you will always find that your framework is easier to use than others especially when compared to Vert.x as it requires learning a new way (reactive programming) of implementing an application.
