Fast setup of a Java microservice project with MicroProfileStarter

In this blog post I want to show the easy setup of an own MicroProfile/OpenLiberty project with MicroProfileStarter . From my perspective that is  very useful for new Java developers, who want to build microservices. The prerequisite is, you have installed maven and Java on your local machine.

You can use for more information the MicroProfileStarter it self and the OpenLiberty getting started documentation.

That’s fits perfect to the topic Cloud-Native. Maybe you already know, we (Niklas, Harald and I) working on the open sourced Cloud Native Starter project. That project contains sample code that demonstrates, how to get started with Cloud-Native applications and microservices based architectures. Here we use also MicroProfile/OpenLiberty.

We created a new 60 -90 min hands-on workshop with the focus on Java microservice development with MicroProfile/OpenLiberty and the deployment to Kubernetes on IBM Cloud. This workshop is perfect to get a basic understanding of the Cloud-Native and Java development topics and the combination with MicroProfileStarter is awesome for newer Java Developers.
