Radically different, but nonetheless easy — that is the dichotomy the new open source microservice framework Lagom is trying to create. What are the features that differentiate it from other frameworks? How easy is it to handle? What does the name actually mean?
Lagom 1.2 is finally here. Some of the highlights of this release are support for message brokers, JDBC, and an overhaul of read sides. But let’s see what this means for users!
Reactive programming is gaining momentum but people are still reluctant to jump on the bandwagon. To help you overcome the fear of the unknown, we decided to ask Scala, Lagom, Spark, Akka and Play experts to explain how these elements coexist and work together to create a reactive universe. This JAX Magazine issue is packed with goodies — it’s our treat!
The first release of Lagom only supported sbt, but after the lack of Maven support became a blocker for many potential users, the team decided to make the investment necessary to run Lagom in Maven.
Lightbend -previously known as Typesafe-, the company behind Akka, has released Lagom — a new open source microservices framework, built on their Reactive Platform. According to the product description, Lagom is “open source, highly opinionated, it’s for decomposing your Java EE monolith like a boss.”
