Build fast, efficient Kubernetes-based Java applications using the Quarkus framework, MicroProfile, and Java standards.
Most popular Java frameworks, like Spring, were designed long before the advent of Kubernetes and cloud-native systems. A new generation of tools, including Quarkus and MicroProfile have been cloud-native and Kubernetes-aware from the beginning. Kubernetes Native Microservices: With Quarkus and MicroProfile teaches you how to create efficient enterprise Java applications that are easy to deploy, maintain, and expand.
In Kubernetes Native Microservices: With Quarkus and MicroProfile you’ll learn how to:
Deploy enterprise Java applications on Kubernetes
Develop applications using the Quarkus runtime framework
Compile natively using GraalVM for blazing speed
Create efficient microservices applications
Take advantage of MicroProfile specifications
about the technology
Modern enterprise Java applications have embraced microservices, containers, Kubernetes, and a cloud-native approach. The Quarkus framework, developed at Red Hat, is designed for this deployment model, making cloud-native application development in Java much easier than it is on Spring or other older platforms. Quarkus applications compiled natively to GraalVM can deliver extremely fast runtimes, potentially improving performance by 100x or more.
about the book
Kubernetes Native Microservices: With Quarkus and MicroProfile introduces a modern approach to enterprise Java development using new tools designed for cloud-native applications. This book begins by exploring the impact Kubernetes and cloud systems have on your application design. Then, it quickly guides you through setting up an application using MicroProfile APIs, Kubernetes, and Quarkus.
Using carefully selected examples and crystal-clear explanations, it guides you step by step from design to deployment.
Written by veteran Java developers John Clingan and Ken Finnigan, this book oozes with experience and insight. You’ll look past the ideal-but-untested advice you find in many books on new technologies and see how Kubernetes-native development with Quarkus and MicroProfile work in the real world.
about the reader
Written for intermediate Java developers comfortable with Java EE, Jakarta EE, or Spring. Assumes some prior exposure to Docker and Kubernetes. No experience with Quarkus or MicroProfile required.
