"Oracle is committed to Java and has a very well defined proposal for the next version of the Java EE specification – Java EE 8 – that will support developers as they seek to build new applications that are designed using micro-services on large-scale distributed computing and container-based environments on the Cloud"
I wouldn't even use Java for this. The Erlang Virtual Machine and the Elixir language seem more appropriate to this use case.
While this new interface would use some parts of Java EE, it would be approximately 80 to 90 per cent proprietary.
It would also be 80 to 90 per cent stillborn. I hope everybody knows about / remembers the unusuable horror of the Sun-issued J2EE (Java 2 enterprise edition) super-heavy spec. "Enterprise" Java became viable (though still unnecessarily baroque at times) when the JEE specification and its free implementations became available (and then there is/was Spring as a competitor). Proprietary complex stuff that one can not play around with, open up, modify or drop on the floor as needed in 2016+? HAH!!!
