Java, OSGi and Simplicity Requirements

Just released, a free O’Reilly book on Reactive Microsystems: The Evolution of Microservices at Scale. Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.

Peter Kriens ( @pkriens) thinks that Java is too complicated for developers looking to learn Java and create a web app.  This has been pretty obvious for a while now.

The primary problem that we should try to address is how to cross the steep threshold that Java puts between an uninitiated developer and a web app. I think having a framework for web apps that provides a skeleton for other applications is the start point that will make a difference.

I like how he mentions both compatibility requirements as well as simplicity requirements as factors when the OSGi Alliance starts deciding how to apply new Java EE APIs in OSGi.
