Today, the Quarkus project was released as a public beta. https://quarkus.io/ For those of you not familiar, Quarkus allows you to write your enterprise apps as you have done in the past with Hibernate/JAX-RS, but also to compile these applications to a Graal-VM native image. Running in a native image allows for the application to be started up in mere milliseconds, depending upon the app, all while using much less memory.
The Infinispan team is proud to announce that you can use the HotRod Java client in Quarkus and supports being compiled to a native image as well. This can allow you to startup and connect to a remote Infinispan server faster than ever before.
If you want a quick and simple example of how you can get this working you can take a look at the quick start which can be found at https://github.com/quarkusio/quarkus-quickstarts/tree/master/infinispan-client. This example covers configuring the client connection, cache injection and simple get/put operations as a basis.
The Infinispan Client Quarkus extension in addition to providing an easy way to create a Graal-VM native image with Infinispan Client also provides the following features to help the user get stuff done quicker.
Automatically Inject Important Resources
User based ProtoStream Marshalling
Querying (Indexed / Non Indexed)
More details for these features as well as how to configure them can be found at https://quarkus.io/guides/infinispan-client-guide
