Why would I want to use spring boot instead of tomcat/jetty?
I tried out the groovy demo for spring boot and I was impressed. However, I'm not sure what it is good for besides tutorials on spring REST.
Is spring boot the recommend way to implement micro-services?
Can someone give me a recommended reading list for spring boot and microservices?

I was assuming deployent in production clouds like Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS or Google App Engine basically mean dropping a WAR file into tomcat or jetty.
Is this still true with spring boot?
If so, how does spring boot help me (besides reducing configuation parameters)?
What new deployement options does spring boot give me?
What advantage is there to the CLI option for a production environent? I suppose it would save you the trouble of installing tomcat or jetty but I never found those to be particularly troublesome installations.
What is the difference between the features of the actuator and using MBeans and JConsole?
Are all these configuration parameters that spring boot saves me from in the web.xml and *context.xml files?
