Over the past few years, container technologies and microservices architectures have offered the opportunity to simplify the runtime infrastructure for applications, and microservices-based applications are being developed widely across companies and industries. About 18 months ago, Oracle announced Project Helidon, an open source, lightweight, fast, reactive, cloud native framework for developing Java microservices. Helidon implements and supports MicroProfile, a baseline platform definition that leverages Java EE and Jakarta EE technologies for microservices and delivers application portability across multiple runtimes. Helidon also supports GraalVM Native Image for much faster startup time and reduced memory footprint.
Oracle Support for Helidon is now included with Oracle Support for the following Oracle product offerings:
Oracle has defined a Helidon Lifecycle Support Policy that ensures 36 months of support for a new major version of Helidon after it becomes generally available. During this time period, customers can receive 24x7 Oracle Support for Helidon consistent with the support levels provided for Oracle WebLogic Server and Oracle Coherence. For more details on Oracle Support for Helidon, customers with Oracle Support contracts should refer to My Oracle Support (MOS) Document 2645279.1.
