Comparing HTTP and RPC

This is not specifically about frees-rpc. Very often our microservices architectures are based on HTTP where perhaps, it is not the best glue to connect them, and RPC services might fit better.

Metrifier is a project where we compare, in different bounded ecosystems, HTTP and RPC. And it turns out RPC is usually faster than HTTP. If you’re interested in learning more, we encourage to take a look at the documentation.

Next Steps

If you want to delve deeper into frees-rpc, we have a complete example at the freestyle-rpc-examples repository, which is based on the Route Guide Demo originally shared by the gRPC Java Project.
