Java server side stack update (OpenLiberty ?)


The current level of servlet support is making impossible to leverage up to date libraries and nowadays development paradigms.

We deeply need servlet engine upgrade, some reactive support

Domino looks prehistoric in this area...

OpenLiberty seems a good candidate to replace venerable equinox / expeditor servlet engines and provide Microprofile support for Domino app dev.

    Yes! And servlets should be allowed to live within NSFs

    An upgrade on servlet support is needed.

    Maybe, there is no need to have a full Java EE application server support. A servlet container like Apache Tomcat should be enough.

    There are 2 candidates worth considering IMHO:

    • OpenLibrety

    • Quarkus (but it's younger / more tied to RH direction)

    The "hard" part has always been the bridge between domino HTTP stack and any appserver.

    I voted for this idea, because a refresh of the included libraries is really needed.

    However, we are now hoping that the AppDev Pack and Proton will provide us with flexibility that we require in our projects. We would like to leave Domino as run-time behind us and only use it as a database.
