Java is still the first choice when it comes to software development for business use . However, the development of Java software alone is not enough: machines, operating systems, JREs, application servers, etc. are required for productive use - and large frameworks and libraries are also required as the basis for code functionality. This overhead hurts more the simpler the required functionality is, because it makes development, testing, and operation more difficult. The alternative concept: Serverless.
Why does it have to be "Serverless or Microservices"? It should be "Microservices with Serverless"! Based on some of the generally accepted principles of microservices, we can use serverless architectures and technologies to build highly focused microservices. Let's take a pragmatic and concise approach to building microservices with Azure Functions, Azure Service Bus, Azure Storage, and other services and tools. And it works for almost all software developers: Java, .NET, Node.js, and even Python.
