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.

As Josh mentioned in “This Week in Spring” already, Eugen Paraschiv recently did a noteworthy survey on the adoption of Spring 4 and Java 8 as well as Spring Boot:

Those are interesting numbers for us. Within the Spring universe, Java 8 adoption seems to be approaching 40%! And in terms of Spring Framework versions, Spring 4 is at 65% already, which I’m really happy to see. Even taking into account that a large part of the corporate use of Spring might not be represented in those numbers, that’s a great trend. And Pivotal’s early production support for Spring 4 on JDK 8 certainly helped in the corporate world as well.

It’s equally great to see that a third of the responders are using Spring Boot in the meantime. In other words, half of the Spring 4 userbase is also using Spring Boot, which is impressive for such a young project. Spring Boot’s immediate inclusion in our Spring I/O Platform with full production support last year might have boosted its adoption quite a bit. But even more importantly, it simply seems to be a fit for today’s application development challenges…
