JAX London interview: Quarkus improves the Java development experience

Hartmut Schlosser

We caught up with Red Hat’s Alex Soto at JAX London and spoke to him about Quarkus and his conference session, “Java Particle Acceleration using Quarkus”. Watch the interview and find out about Quarkus, the Supersonic Subatomic Java.

Quarkus is a new open source project. It is a container-first Kubernetes Native Java stack tailored for OpenJDK HotSpot and GraalVM, crafted from the best of breed Java libraries and standards. The framework helps improve the Java development experience. To celebrate the release of Quarkus 1.0.0.Final, we’re sharing some great Quarkus content that we’ve been saving for a special occasion like this one!

From its GitHub README:

  • Container First: Minimal footprint Java applications optimal for running in containers
  • Cloud Native: Embraces 12 factor architecture in environments like Kubernetes.
  • Unify imperative and reactive: Brings under one programming model non blocking and imperative styles of development.
  • Standards-based: Based on the standards and frameworks you love and use (RESTEasy and JAX-RS, Hibernate ORM and JPA, Netty, Eclipse Vert.x, Eclipse MicroProfile, Apache Camel…)
  • Microservice First: Brings lightning fast startup time and code turn around to Java apps
  • Developer Joy: Development centric experience without compromise to bring your amazing apps to life in no time

Take a few minutes to watch this fascinating interview with Alex Soto to find out all about it.
