Launching the Micro Future: Micronaut with GraalVM in Practice @ JUG.CH Berne 2019

Launching the Micro Future: Micronaut with GraalVM in Practice @ JUG.CH Berne 2019

Micronaut is a modern, JVM-based full-stack framework for building modular, easily testable microservice and serverless applications. Developed by the creators of the Grails framework and with the support of many Spring developers, who have used their experience in these areas to develop a framework specifically focused on microservices.

Oracle’s newly developed GraalVM will change our view of microservices and cloud capabilities in the Java ecosystem and enable us to compete with native compilations. When Micronaut and GraalVM come together, both architectures can take full advantage of each other, resulting in amazingly efficient applications.

This workshop is an introduction to development with Micronaut on the GraalVM to give you everything you need to get started right away. The following topics will be covered in the workshop:

- Project creation with Micronaut-CLI
- Non-blocking, reactive HTTP Clients and Servers
- Scheduled Task Execution
- Configuration using files and environment variables
- Unit-Tests with and without a server
- Dependency Injection (at compile time)
- Robust interfaces (Retries, Circuit Breakers, Fallback)
- GraalVM Native Image
- Build using Docker without local GraalVM installation

    Main Focus
    Micronaut focuses on the following aspects of applications for the JVM and tries
    to optimize them:
    ● Fast application start-up
    ● Reduced runtime memory footprint
    ● Minimal use of Java Reflection
    ● Minimal use of Java proxies
    ● Simple, fast application tests

    Introduction to Micronaut
    The lecture of Graeme Rocher yesterday at 5 pm in the Apollo room was recorded
    and will be available on YouTube (hopefully) soon.
    I don't want to repeat this and therefore concentrate on the practical side with
    some examples.

    ● You are frighteningly awesome at what you do.
    ● You can perform quick and deadly tactical
    strikes, as well as feats of epic badassery.
    Sometimes both at the same time.
    ● You would rather refactor existing, mostly
    working, ugly code instead of rewriting it from
    scratch. OK nobody would really rather do that,
    but you know it's the right and honorable thing
    to do most of the time.
    ● You know where your towel is.
