Battle Of The Microservice Frameworks: Micronaut versus Quarkus edition!

Server Side Java

Micronaut and Quarkus are two cool emerging Java backend frameworks that aim to solve some problems that exist in current frameworks, like faster startup, low memory footprint, and support for ahead-of-time compilation using GraalVM. In this session, we'll square off both frameworks against each other.

How do they compare, what are the stronger and weaker points of both frameworks?

We'll compare the following features:

  • Initializing your project
  • Building your first restcontroller / programming model
  • Startup time
  • Database support
  • Integration test support
  • Building native images
  • Memory usage and JAR sizes
  • Ease of cloud deployment

In the end, we might have a clear winner! ... or will we?
