On Monday, WSO2 launched the Microservices Framework for Java (MSF4J), which is built on the companyâs open source middleware platform Carbon. MSF4J is going up against competitors such as Spring Boot. What makes it stand out? Besides being open source, MSF4J is focused on enabling truly lightweight microservices for rapid container deployment.
â[MSF4J] has been designed with containers in mind so that youâd run the microservices in the containers environment, a very small environment,â Mauny said. She went on to say that MSF4J enables microservices to boot in a Docker container in 400 milliseconds and be âeasilyâ added to a Docker image definition.
