SnoopEE [ˈsnuːpı] –The lean and simple discovery mechanism for Java EE based microservices.
What’s in a name, really?
Naming is hard! When I came up with the name Snoop for my discovery mechanism for microservices based on Java EE, my though was to associate the name with “snooping around for services to discover”. It seems, however, that most people’s thought goes to Snoop Dogg when hearing the name and that was never my intention.
That is one of the reasons for the renaming. Another consideration is that I want to point out that the best fit for SnoopEE is for Java EE!
At the same time I don’t want to signal that it is only for Java EE. I want it to be just as lean and simple no matter what technology used to implement the services. That is the only reason why I have been a little reluctant to the renaming.
SnoopEE has a nicer feel and as the twitter poll indicates, I am not alone thinking this.
For the record, I have nothing at all against Snoop Dogg! I just feel that Snoopy the dog is a little bit cuter…
I have crated a new page for SnoopEE, but as for everyhing else, such as GitHub repo, maven coordinates and naming, it all stays as it is until properly announced otherwise.
