Learn Micronaut: a reactive microservices framework for the JVM

Hands-on Lab

Micronaut is a modern, JVM-based, full stack microservices framework designed for building modular, easily testable Micro Service applications in Java, Kotlin or Groovy. Micronaut is developed by the creators of Grails and takes inspiration from lessons learnt over the years building real-world applications from monoliths to microservices using Spring, Spring Boot and Grails.

This workshop covers the current features of Micronaut for building microservices, such as:

Dependency Injection and Inversion of Control (IoC). Configuration system. HTTP services. Cloud and serverless deployments. Management & Monitoring.

Server-less functions with Micronaut


Server-less architectures where as a developer you deploy functions that are fully managed by the Cloud environment and are executed in ephemeral processes require a unique approach.

Traditional frameworks like Grails and Spring are not really suitable since low memory consumption and fast startup time are critical and the Function as a Service (FaaS) server will typically spin up your function for a period using a cold start and then keep it warm.

This session introduces Micronaut’s compile-time approach: fast startup time and low-memory footprint which make it a great candidate for using as a framework for developing functions. In fact, Micronaut features dedicated support for developing and deploying functions to AWS Lambda and any FaaS system that supports running functions as containers (such as OpenFaaS, Rift, or Fn).
