Quarkus book is out!

I’m glad to announce Packt Publishing just published my latest book “Hands-On Cloud-Native Applications with Java and Quarkus: Build high performance Java microservices on Kubernetes” !


quarkus book quarkus book

Build robust and reliable Java applications that works on modern infrastructure such as containers and cloud using the latest features of Quarkus 1.0

Key Features

  • Build applications with faster boot-time and low RSS memory using the latest features of Quarkus 1.0
  • Seamlessly unify 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.

Book Description

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 the basic concepts of a Cloud-native application and its advantage 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 Paas environment like Minishift. Later, we will build a complete real-world application that will use REST and CDI stack with a web front-end. 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 become proficient with all the components of Quarkus and develop blazing fast applications leveraging the modern technology infrastructure
