Comparing HTTP and RPC

This is not specifically about mu. Very often our microservices architectures are based on HTTP but perhaps it is not the best glue to connect them, and RPC services might be a better fit.

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

Next Steps

If you want to dive deeper into mu, we have a complete example at the examples module, which is based on the Route Guide Demo originally shared by the gRPC Java Project.
