Micronaut is a new JVM-based, full-stack framework for building modular, easily testable microservice applications.
Unlike reflection-based IoC frameworks, which load and cache reflection data for every single field, method, and constructor in your code, with Micronaut, your application startup time and memory consumption are not bound to the size of your codebase.
The Micronaut framework shares many core values with Grails, including the enablement of code simplicity and developer productivity. Micronaut offers many additional features for a new class of applications (e.g., microservices, serverless deployments, etc.) that may not be well-suited for Grails.
Compelling aspects of the Micronaut framework include:
- 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!
