Ballerina is an open-source programming language for integration and building network-distributed systems. The cloud-native, object-oriented language supports sequence diagrams to specify operations that happen in sequence. Ballerina integrates visual representation of the data flows into the language syntax, designed to make them easier to write, read, and maintain. The Ballerina Standard Library comes with connectors for HTTP/HTTPS, SQL databases along with native support for Swagger/OpenAPI specifications. It also features a concurrent execution model with support for isolated workers running on multiple threads.
