RE: Serverless with Spring Boot?

Last Update: 12.10.2018. By Jens in Newsletter

Reader Onno chimed in and reminded me that there is also Spring Cloud Function which aims helping with serverless the Spring way. Maybe it works, maybe not. I haven’t used it.

From the outside following docs and sample code, they are still running a Spring Boot application. Even we don’t need a Tomcat in this scenario, there is still the startup time of Spring and populating the context. How long that takes depends on us and our code. Anyways, as we see there are a few things to consider if you want to go that route. Just don’t follow the hype blindly.
