The open-source Wookiee framework from Oracle lets Scala developers build concurrent, message-driven microservices applications more quickly using tools like the Akka toolkit.

This platform, sharing its name with the big, furry Star Wars race, has been around since 2015, and continues to release new features and performance improvements. Its repository contains the core, main class HarnessService, supporting components, and a test library, says InfoWorld, and allows developers to skip the dreary parts of building new microservices to get "straight to the fun stuff," according to its own documentation

InfoWorld reports the following components of Wookiee's library:

  • A command manager to execute commands.
  • A component manager to load component .jar files and managers.
  • A service manager to load user services, where an application’s primary business logic resides.
  • Basic logging for components and services.
  • Utility libraries for common functions in code.
  • A health provider, providing a framework for health in services and components.

This pluggable core functionality allows developers to load only the components they want, making development faster and easier.
