The aim of this talk is to answer the following questions:
- What is GraphQL?
- How does it compare to REST: competitor or complement?
- How does it fit with Java in general and MicroProfile in particular?
- What is MicroProfile GraphQL?
- Why should you care?
Going from an introduction to GraphQL, a presentation of MicroProfile, a live demo, we want the audience to get a better graps of what MicroProfile GraphQL can provide to develop modern APIs.
GraphQL is not a silver bullet that will replace REST. It is more like the SQL vs NoSQL battle, where at the end of the day, you have to choose the right tool for your mission.
