Microservices! They are everywhere, or at least, the term is. When should you use a microservice architecture? What factors should be considered when making that decision? Do the benefits outweigh the costs? Why is everyone so excited about them, anyway?  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.

 There's only one weekend left until we get to EclipseCon 2009 - and I can't wait! You'll have already seen what talks I'm looking forward to. We'll have lots of coverage of the conference here at EclipseZone. Another really easy way to follow the conference is by using Twitter to follow EclipseCon people. All you need to do to find these people is head over to the EclipseCon Birds Nest.  There's four different ways to partipate - as a standard
follower, as a speaker, an exhibitor or an attendee. 

There's going to be a Twitter monitor in the lounge area for people to watch what people are saying about the conference. Twittervision - how cool is that?! Ian Skerrett is also planning a tweetup on Sunday night.

Over the last few weeks I've become a Twitter addict myself - it's a great way to keep in touch with the latest goings on. (If you want to follow me, just go to my profile as dzonejames.)

In other EclipseCon news, Sun Microsystems have become a Gold Sponsor for the conference. They will be showing their Eclipse support for JavaFX, GlassFish and Solaris. It's good to see Sun there. 

If you haven't registered yet, there's still time for advance registration, ending today. Make sure to use your DZone coupon to get 10% off, using the DZONE10 code. Otherwise you can register on site. 

So, if you want to stay in the loop for EclipseCon, become part of the Birds Nest , follow me around on Twitter and keep visiting EclipseZone.
