Oracles Wookiee brings microservices to Scala developers
See the original posting on JavaWorld
In the Star Wars movies, pilot Han Solo explored the galaxy accompanied by a large, hairy creature known as a Wookiee. Scala developers can build microservices with a framework of the same name.
Oracles Wookiee is a Scala-based framework that uses technologies including the Akka toolkit, which is tailored to building concurrent, message-driven applications. The open source framework is meant to save developers from the tedium of building microservices and let them get straight to the fun stuff, its documentation states. Wookiee serves as a Scala-based counterpart to Oracles Project Helidon, which provides Java libraries for writing microservices.
