Apache Sling as a Microservices Gateway

A session at Voxxed Days Bucharest

Microservices are definitely the hot topic du jour . Everyone ( and their dog ) is using microservices or migrating towards them. However, there is a gap between the enthusiam for microservices and the ability to create and maintain the infrastructure and culture to effectively use microservices.

Apache Sling is an innovative web framework built on top of the Java Content Repository (JCR), that uses OSGi for its component model and fosters RESTful application design. And, as we will see, it is also perfect match for a microservices gateway.

In this talk we will review the pros and cons of microservices and monoliths, and look for middle road that smaller organisations that follow to use services productively. One of the approaches we will outline and demo is an API gateway built on top of Apache Sling, used to adress the cross-cutting concerns that would otherwise be reimplemented by all microservices.
