More OCI Integrations
Helidon now has OCI ATP Service Integration with Wallet Management and Easy connection and DataSource Configuration. Integration with Object Storage and Vault now provides Health Checks.
Long Running Actions (LRA) Early Access
MicroProfile LRA provides a simple, loosely coupled transaction model for microservices that is based on the SAGA pattern for distributed transaction. It relaxes some of the constraints of ACID transactions to enable independent microservices to more easily participate in a potentially long-running orchestrated activity. Each microservice contributes the encapsulated business logic that is required to align with the overall outcome of the activity or transaction. Helidon uses Narayana as supported coordinator. But there is an experimental Helidon implementation of coordinator. This coordinator handles one or more participant services so that the execution of their business logic is organized in a predictable way. Read the complete article here.
