JVM Powered

Made to run over the fastest and most efficient runtime environment, you can take advantage from modern Java 8 libraries such as Lombok and Metrics. You can also interoperate with other modern languages that run over the JVM such as Kotlin and Scala.

Use your favorite IDE

You can use your favorite IDE to code your microservices: Intellij IDEA, Eclipse and Netbeans. You can even use Sublime Text or Notepad++ you have a properly configured Maven/Gradle project.
