OCI Announces Upcoming Launch of Micronaut at Greach

Graeme Rocher announced the upcoming launch of Micronaut at Greach

On March 16th, 2018, Graeme Rocher delivered a keynote address to Greach Conference attendees. In his talk, Graeme announced Micronaut™, a new, JVM-based, full-stack framework for building modular, easily testable microservice applications.

"Micronaut was built by the same people who built Grails and aims to provide the same wow factor for microservices that Grails does for monoliths," Graeme said. "Leveraging over 10 years experience in framework development, we've developed a new framework from the ground up for microservices and serverless computing."

Micronaut offers:

  • Blazing fast throughput
  • Minimal footprint memory
  • Sub-second startup time
  • Tiny processes that may run in as little as 8mb of heap
  • No runtime reflection
  • Dependency injection
  • Load balancing
  • And more!

Reflection-based IoC frameworks load and cache reflection data for every single field, method, and constructor in your code, whereas with Micronaut, your application startup time and memory consumption are not bound to the size of your codebase.

Micronaut's first milestone will be released in Q2 2018, and a first release candidate is expected before the end of 2018.
