Just recently, I have had to admit being wrong. Very wrong. Way back at the start of October, I was feeling the familiar sensation of panic and dread that only happens right before I need to give a presentation that includes a demo!
One thing that I was very keen to demonstrate was how quick and easy it is to develop and build MicroServices packaged as Uber JARs with our new Payara Micro Maven plugin. Now that using the Maven plugin made such a difference in speed, I thought this was as good as it gets! Build a project in a couple of seconds and start it in a couple more – how much faster could it possibly get?
Quite a lot faster, it turns out.
