API stability

HTTP API stability

Ditto uses schema-versioning at the HTTP API level in order to being able to evolve breaking APIs. It is backward compatible to the prior versions 1.0.0.

Java API stability

The Java APIs will for the 1.x release be kept backwards compatible, so only non-breaking additions to the APIs will be done. This is enforced by a Maven tooling.

The following Java modules are treated as Java for which compatibility is enforced:

  • ditto-json
  • ditto-model-*
  • ditto-signals-*
  • ditto-protocol-adapter
  • ditto-utils
  • ditto-client

No efforts towards i18n are done in this release.

Target Environments

Ditto delivers docker images with a pre-bundled Java runtime (powered by OpenJ9). Ditto supports deployment to Docker Swarm and Kubernetes out of the box.
