Quarkus, a Kubernetes-native Java runtime, now fully supported by Red Hat

Java was introduced 25 years ago, and to this day, remains one of the most popular programming languages among developers. However, Java has developed a reputation for not being a good fit for cloud-native applications. Developers look for (and often choose) alternative frameworks such as Go and Node.js to support their cloud-native development requirements.

Quarkus allows Java developers to leverage their expertise to develop cloud-native, event-driven, reactive, and serverless applications. Quarkus provides a cohesive Java platform that feels familiar but new at the same time. Not only does it leverage existing Java standards, but it also provides a number of features that optimize developer joy, including live coding, unified configuration, IDE plugins, and more.

Recently, Red Hat announced support for Quarkus. With Quarkus, Red Hat advances Java on Kubernetes and bridges the gap between traditional Java applications and cloud-native environments.
