    Project mention: Libraries other than Spring Boot for creating web APIs | | 2022-06-28

    I created ... with the hope of helping to move Javalin more in the Java direction but yeah, Javalin isn't going in that direction. So avaje-jex now will follow it's own path (as pretty much a web routing layer that abstracts over various http servers like jetty, grizzly etc with a java and loom focus).
