If you had to deliver a 2-floor ‘elevator sell’ for Quarkus, you’d say that it’s a Kubernetes-native Java stack. If you had more breathing space and time for a 5-floor elevator sell, you could say that it’s a Kubernetes-native Java stack tailored for OpenJDK HotSpot and GraalVM, crafted from best-of-breed Java libraries and standards to drive modern Java applications to the container-centric cloud.
It is no secret that our world is changing. This article will explore how using a combination of Knative, the Kubernetes-native serverless platform, and Quarkus, Red Hat’s container-native approach to Java, can be used together to help simplify the modernization of application delivery.
What does one of the most popular pen-and-paper role-playing games have in common with application metrics and frameworks like Quarkus or Micrometer? This epic article takes you on an adventure full of monster battles, graphs and metrics. And now everyone grab a d20 and roll to “Read”!
Keep up with Quarkus; let’s take a closer look and see what’s new with the supersonic subatomic Java. The latest update, version 1.5.0.Final adds new extensions, bug fixes, and a few performance upgrades. Let’s take a look at everything under the hood.
A competitor recently published a microbenchmark comparing the performance of their stack to Quarkus. The Quarkus team feels this microbenchmark shouldn’t be taken at face value because it wasn’t making a like-to-like comparison leading to incorrect conclusions. Both of the two frameworks under comparison support reactive processing. Reactive processing enables running the business logic directly on the IO thread, which ultimately performs better in microbenchmark focusing on response time and concurrency. The microbenchmark should have been written so that both frameworks (or neither framework) obtain this benefit. Anyway, this turns out to be a very interesting topic and good information for Quarkus users, so read on.
Every Monday, we take a step back and look at all the cool stuff that went down during the previous week. Last week, Quarkus 1.4.1.Final arrived—and it deprecated the still widely used language version Java 8. We also got to know the new Project Leyden and spoke to Rust core developer Steve Klabnik.
Quarkus 1.4.1.Final arrived with several new features. This version deprecates Java 8; users are now recommended to use Java 11. It also introduced a new FaaS framework and a new command mode for building command line apps.
OCI Grails & Micronaut Product Lead and Principal Software Engineer, Graeme Rocher, published a report comparing the speeds of Micronaut, Quarkus, and Spring Boot on JDK 14. Which is the fastest and which has the lowest memory consumption?
Every Monday, we take a step back and look at all the cool stuff that went down during the previous week. Java 14 was released last week, so we looked into all the exciting new features and interviewed Java experts to see what they like most about JDK 14.
In the last decade, the enterprise IT landscape has moved from large, monolithic applications towards lighter and more modular application architectures. Java EE was an enabler of the old way of creating enterprise apps, so it too needed to change with the times. Reinvention—including the advent of Quarkus—suggests a bright future ahead for enterprise Java.
The newest release for Quarkus, version 1.3.0.Final, has arrived. Explore the newest changes and see how the Quarkus Java framework helps Java fit in with the cloud native world. Let’s take a closer look at the changelog and see what’s new.
Java Framework Quarkus is designed to make Java fit for the cloud native age with Kubernetes and serverless. Quarkus 1.2.0, the second minor release following the major version, contains among other things a Vault Transit Secret Engine guide, support for .yml and support for both GraalVM 19.2.1 and 19.3.1. Let’s take a closer look.
Quarkus has been on our Java radar since its inception, and for a good reason too. A recent update reveals that Quarkus is now compatible with the latest edition of Eclipse MicroProfile. Check in on the latest news and see what’s changed, and what the plans for the future are. Keep an eye out, because the newest edition of Quarkus is on its way and it could arrive any day now.
Every Monday, we take a step back and look at all the cool stuff that went down during the previous week. Last week Quarkus 1.1.1.Final was released, a VS Code update added more features for Java and the winner of the Programming Language of the Year award was announced. Let’s take a closer look.
