When your toolbox only has hammer and screws, you'd choose wood as the construction material instead of metal, because hammering screws into wood is easier.


For example,

hammer = Spring Boot,
screws = new-fangled technologies like NoSQL and Micro-services
wood = ancient enterprise design patterns that were meant for J2EE

metal = EIP patterns based on actor systems like Akka
