We are thrilled to announce that serverless (aka FaaS) developers now have a choice to expose their serverless functions as RESTful APIs from within the Jazz serverless development platform at a click of a button. If you are not aware of T-Mobile’s Jazz Serverless Development Platform, you can check it out on Github. With this integration, Jazz developers will have an option to choose between multiple API Gateway providers for their serverless functions - APIGEE & AWS API Gateway depending on their business needs & their enterprise compliance requirements.

In the Java ecosystem both SpringBoot and Vertx are very popular frameworks for developing microservices. With the release of these templates we are bringing the power of these frameworks into OpenFaas. You can find the templates in our github repository here.
