Hands-On Cloud-Native Applications with Java and Quarkus
Build robust and reliable Java applications that works on modern infrastructure, such as containers and cloud, using the new features in Quarkus 1.0
Build apps with faster boot time and low RSS memory using the latest Quarkus 1.0 features
Seamlessly integrate imperative and reactive programming models to build modern Java applications
Discover effective solutions for running Java on serverless apps, microservices, containers, FaaS, and the cloud
Quarkus is a new Kubernetes-native framework that allows Java developers to combine the power of containers, microservices, and cloud-native to build reliable applications. The book is a development guide that will teach you how to build Java-native applications using Quarkus and GraalVM.
We start by learning about the basic concepts of a cloud-native application and its advantages over standard enterprise applications. Then we will quickly move on to application development, by installing the tooling required to build our first application on Quarkus. Next, we’ll learn how to create a container-native image of our application and execute it in a Platform-as-a-Service environment such as Minishift. Later, we will build a complete real-world application that will use REST and the Contexts and Dependency injection stack with a web frontend. We will also learn how to add database persistence to our application using PostgreSQL. We will learn how to work with various APIs available to Quarkus such as Camel, Eclipse MicroProfile, and Spring DI. Towards the end, we will learn advanced development techniques such as securing applications, application configuration, and working with non-blocking programming models using Vert.x.
By the end of this book, you will be proficient with all the components of Quarkus and develop-blazing fast applications leveraging modern technology infrastructure.
