Look inside

In this liveProject, you’ll use the Quarkus ecosystem to provide a data persistence layer to the Catalog API of a video streaming service. As a software engineer for the Chill+ streaming site, you’ll be using the Quarkus “Hibernate with Panache” extension, which is an opinionated usage of the famous Hibernate ORM data persistence framework. To speed up the dev and test stages, you’ll use the Quarkus DevServices feature, which spins up a database container and configures the application for you.

This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.

book resources

When you start your liveProject, you get full access to the following books for 90 days.

This liveProject is for software engineers with experience building Java applications and with basic knowledge of database access. To begin this liveProject you will need to be familiar with the following:

  • Intermediate Java
  • Basic Maven
  • Intermediate knowledge of a Java framework (Spring, Spring Boot, Java EE)
  • Basic Java Object-Relational Mapping libraries
  • Basic PostgreSQL
  • Java tests using frameworks like JUnit and Mockito
  • Basic SQL queries

you will learn

In this liveProject, you’ll learn how to use Quarkus and Panache to access and manipulate databases.

  • Use Quarkus extensions to work with Hibernate ORM with Panache
  • Discover the active record data access pattern promoted by Quarkus
  • Develop Create-Read-Update-Delete operations
  • Experiment advanced querying features using Panache
  • Use Quarkus DevServices to automatically spin up a database container and configure your application to speed up the Dev and Test stages
