Eclipse MicroProfile

What is Eclipse MicroProfile?

The MicroProfile project was launched in June 2016 as a collaborative effort between Java application server vendors and the enterprise Java community to enable fast innovation.

MicroProfile is a specification which provides a set of APIs focused on microservices. The complete MicroProfile API is provided as a Bill Of Materials (BOM) which can be used by developers as a generic dependency provided by a vendor of their choice.

Payara has been part of the MicroProfile project from its inception and, therefore, supports all specifications of MicroProfile.

What does each specification contain?

Version Specifications Maven




  • JAX-RS 2.0

  • CDI 1.1

  • JSON-P 1.0
