Chapter 6. Conclusion

WildFly Swarm provides a platform that is well-suited to the development of microservices, while taking advantage of mature Java EE patterns and implementations. In addition to the functionality of popular and widely used Java EE specifications, WildFly Swarm also integrates with a large number of modern libraries designed to solve common challenges in microservice development. WildFly Swarm fractions provide a powerful and easy integration point for new and additional features. Services built on this platform are then easily deployed on Red Hat® OpenShift Container Platform 3.

This paper and its accompanying technical implementation seek to serve as a useful reference for building an application in the microservice architectural style, while providing a proof of concept that can easily be replicated in a customer environment.
