Build resilient and scalable, cloud-native, enterprise Java applications using the Quarkus framework.
In Quarkus in Action, you will:
Use Quarkus Dev mode to speed up and enhance Java development
Understand how to use the Dev UI to observe and troubleshoot running applications
Automatic background testing using the Continuous Testing feature
New frameworks and libraries such as Reactive Messaging, gRPC, and GraphQL
Simplify deployment of applications into Kubernetes and OpenShift
Automatic management of remote services such as databases and message brokers
Quarkus in Action teaches you to build resilient and scalable cloud applications with Quarkus. It's written by Martin Štefanko and Jan Martiška, Red Hat engineers who are both active contributors to the Quarkus project. Working hands-on through a realistic business application, you'll use Quarkus to simplify the development process of a car rental application. Learn how Quarkus lets you live-reload your Java code, deliver continuous background testing, and automatically provide database instances, plus tons more productivity-boosting features.
about the technology
The Kubernetes-native Quarkus framework is perfect for cloud-native Java development. It's built with a philosophy of developer joy, and you'll quickly see why. Java developers love Quarkus for its amazing productivity features, including development mode, continuous testing, and a dev UI that lets you code without stopping and starting. Plus, Quarkus lets you generate Kubernetes resources out of the box, so you can skip learning all of Kubernetes' complex details.
