What every Java engineer should know about microservices: Reactive Microservices Architecture.  Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.

The latest member of KITT, a NetBeans Platform based project by Saab Systems Grintek South Africa, is Komposer.

Komposer is a tool used to define message sets used by the KORE, the main development platform. A message set contains the structure of a number of messages, for example the definitions of the messages in the NMEA 0183 standard.

The message sets may be exported in the format of NetBeans modules containing Java source code that plugs into the KORE, together with a set of unit tests to ensure message structure correctness.
