Micronaut: Launching the Micro Future
Micronaut is a new full-stack Java virtual machine (JVM) framework for building modular, easily testable microservices and serverless applications. Unlike reflection-based inversion of control (IoC) frameworks, Micronaut provides advanced dependency injection and aspect-oriented programming (AOP) support at compilation time. As a result, your application start-up time and memory usage are reduced to a minimum, regardless of the size of your code base.
In this talk, Micronaut co-founder, Jeff Scott Brown, explains how Micronaut’s HTTP layer is built on Netty, a proven asynchronous network toolkit designed around an event loop and efficient, nonblocking input/output (I/O). Native support for reactive streams allows you to build out your API using expressive libraries such as RxJava and apply reactive programming patterns across your entire application. In an era of microservices and cloud computing, Micronaut incorporates support for cloud-friendly reliability patterns—from load balancing and circuit breakers to shared configuration and service discovery—and makes these features available and easily configurable from within your application. From the ground up, Micronaut applications are natively cloud native.
