Let’s go to the quark of things. We don’t want you to spend hours learning new technologies. Instead, Quarkus provides leading frameworks and technologies from open source projects, such as Vert.x, Camel, Hibernate and RESTEasy. You can also find innovative community projects, such as SmallRye. If you are looking for standards you can find MicroProfile and selected specifications from Jakarta EE.
Our dependency injection solution is based on CDI with Arc.
You can use JAX-RS annotations to define the REST endpoints with RESTEasy.
You can use JPA annotations to map your persistent entities and JTA annotations to declare the transaction boundaries with Hibernate
You can use SmallRye to configure, secure, document and monitor your application.
Of course, Quarkus is not a passive consumer. Our goal is to improve and innovate the technologies we use and contribute back to the open source projects and standards we rely on.
