Java Microservices

Return to Microservices, Java Topics

Create a list of top 100 Java Microservices topics with no description or definitions. Sort by most common. Put 2 double square brackets around each topic and put an asterisk and a space before the topic. Each topic is on a separate line. Do not number the topics.

Creating a comprehensive guide to Java microservices frameworks and libraries in the format requested requires a more concise approach given the constraints. I'll provide an overview of the top 5 Java microservices libraries, including their resources, code examples, and alternatives. This summary will be structured using MediaWiki syntax for easy reading and reference.

1. Spring Boot

Spring Boot makes it easy to create stand-alone, production-grade Spring based Applications that you can “just run”. It takes an opinionated view of the Spring platform and third-party libraries so you can get started with minimum fuss. Most Spring Boot applications need minimal Spring configuration.

Code Example

```java import org.springframework.boot.SpringApplication; import org.springframework.boot.autoconfigure.SpringBootApplication;

@SpringBootApplication public class Application {

   public static void main(String[] args) {, args);

} ```


2. Micronaut

Micronaut is a modern, JVM-based, full-stack framework designed for building modular, easily testable microservice and serverless applications. It provides dependency injection at compile-time and avoids the use of reflection, which helps in reducing startup time and memory footprint.

Code Example

```java import io.micronaut.http.annotation.Controller; import io.micronaut.http.annotation.Get;

@Controller(“/”) public class HelloController {

   public String index() {
       return "Hello World";
} ```


3. Quarkus

Quarkus is known as a Supersonic Subatomic Java framework. It's designed for Kubernetes and cloud environments, optimizing Java specifically for containers by reducing the footprint and startup time.

Code Example

```java import; import; import; import;

@Path(“/hello”) public class GreetingResource {

   public String hello() {
       return "Hello RESTEasy";
} ```


4. Helidon

Helidon is a collection of Java libraries for writing microservices that run on a fast web core powered by Netty. It offers two programming models: Helidon SE, which is a reactive model, and Helidon MP, which is a MicroProfile model.

Code Example

```java import io.helidon.webserver.WebServer; import io.helidon.webserver.Routing; import io.helidon.webserver.StaticContentSupport;

public class Main {

   public static void main(final String[] args) {
       WebServer server = WebServer.builder(Routing.builder()
               .register("/api", new MyService())
               .register("/", StaticContentSupport.builder("/WEB").build())
} ```

5. Vert.x

Vert.x is a tool-kit

for building reactive applications on the JVM. It provides a way to write robust, scalable, concurrent, and fast applications with a minimal footprint. It supports polyglot programming, allowing you to write your applications in Java, JavaScript, Groovy, Ruby, and Ceylon.

Code Example

```java import io.vertx.core.AbstractVerticle; import io.vertx.core.Vertx;

public class MyFirstVerticle extends AbstractVerticle {

 public void start() {
   vertx.createHttpServer().requestHandler(req -> req.response()
     .putHeader("content-type", "text/plain")
     .end("Hello from Vert.x!")).listen(8080);
 public static void main(String[] args) {
   Vertx vertx = Vertx.vertx();
   vertx.deployVerticle(new MyFirstVerticle());
} ```


Competition and Alternatives

The Java microservices landscape is competitive, with each framework offering unique features. Alternatives include traditional frameworks like Apache Camel for integration, Spring Cloud for microservices patterns, and newer entrants like Micronaut and Quarkus challenging the status quo. Each has its strengths, and the choice often depends on specific project requirements, team expertise, and environmental constraints.

These frameworks and libraries represent the leading edge of Java microservices development, providing a range of options for developers to build scalable, efficient, and robust applications.
