8.0.0 is a major release with significant new functionality in the microservice APIs.
All deprecated APIs have been cleaned up.
The Microservice API has been revamped to use a builder-based approach to creating microservices.
The new API is considerably more flexible in design and allows for the configuration and external
files to be located in either the home directory or inside the jar classpath.
New Spring Boot integration support classes.
REST resource classes can now easily be deployed as Spring Beans in a Spring Boot environment.
New template starter projects for creating either Jetty or Spring-Boot based microservices.
New instructions on how to quickly deploy Juneau-based applications to Heroku.
Fixed binary backwards compatibility issues with 7.1.0.
Method-level annotations (e.g. @RestMethod) and parameter-level annotations (e.g. @Query) are now inheritable
from parent classes and interfaces.
This allows you to define Dual-Purpose Java Interfaces.
