MicroProfile Documentation

The MicroProfile project has several sources of information and collaboration. Since there is a large volume of activity, there is a need for important decisions to be recorded in one place for future reference. This is the aim of this repository.

Current Resources

The Microprofile project is community-focused at its heart and aims to engage and encourage lively discussion through as many channels as possible.

Eclipse MicroProfile and

The MicroProfile community has two portals to information. The main site is the Eclipse MicroProfile project. In addition to this portal to our community at Eclipse, we will continue to maintain our external site at Both sites will be maintained to promote the development and use of MicroProfile in the industry.


The MicroProfile wiki contains up-to-date information about the project development, tools and other documentation.

Google Group

The Microprofile Google Group is the preferred place for discussions to take place.

Mailing Lists

Besides the Google Group threads (main source of communication), there is also an Eclipse microprofile-dev mailing list which should be used for conversation specific to the Eclipse way of doing things. By using this mailing list, the Eclipse team can more quickly recognize and respond to our requests.

Since the MicroProfile project is still in incubation, another useful mailing list is the incubation mailing list for asking general Eclipse process questions.

Notable Contributors

There is a very large number of people and vendors already involved in the MicroProfile project. The most complete list of contributors can be found at our site. Specific to our Eclipse efforts, another page is automatically maintained at Eclipse MicroProfile for the Eclipse committers and project leads.
