Here is a list of some potential Spring Boot Modules that are good for developing into Micro Service that you will most likely reuse across several projects. The success of start-ups is low and it is good to have the common modules (almost) ready so you could fail fast and develop the new idea fast.
If you are developing a start-up – a project generator will be a key to get MVPs ready from the ground up – fast.
They are not exactly Micro Services, but, I’ve used:
