Can okapi integrate with Spring Cloud components, such as Eureka, Hystrix, and Sleuth?


#1

Though Folio claims it’s a microservices framework, it’s still a long way to go to build the whole ecosystem for folio. Spring Cloud is the most popular microservices framework and has many out-of-box components ready for use. Can okapi easily integrate with Spring Cloud components, such as Eureka, Hystrix, and Sleuth? Is there any detail about HOW TO do this?


#2

There has been some work on using Spring and its related projects as a substitute for the FOLIO-specific RAML Module Builder. In particular, work has been done in recent weeks by developers at Texas A&M University to provide some core libraries to ease the development of Okapi Modules using Spring. See these two GitHub repos:


This was done as part of a proof-of-concept for integrating the Camunda workflow engine into Okapi. Work has stopped on the proof-of-concept, and the FOLIO Technical Council is going to discuss the use of Spring at its December 19th meeting.
