Build even faster Quarkus applications with fast-jar

Build even faster Quarkus applications with fast-jar

Quarkus is already fast, but what if you could make inner loop development with the supersonic, subatomic Java framework even faster? Quarkus 1.5 introduced fast-jar, a new packaging format that supports faster startup times. Starting in Quarkus 1.12, this great feature became the default packaging format for Quarkus applications.

This article focuses on the migration path to JKube 1.0.0.
