  • Spring cloud sidecar

    by Florin Jurcovici,

    I'm surprised that the capability of spring cloud to support a polyglot environment via spring cloud sidecar wasn't even mentioned.

    And I'd be interested in a comparison between a solution based on istio and a spring cloud sidecar _even_ for Java services. As far as I can tell, using the spring cloud sidecar is also high performance, but by far more flexible than istio - you have a choice between consul and eureka, between zipkin and jaeger, and get a really well tested and mature resiliency patterns implementation. Plus, the spring cloud sidecar being an _application_, you can customize and extend at will - something that's much harder with istio.

    I'd be happy if someone more in the know could expand on these ideas, or, if they're wrong, explain why.
