Combining Quarkus with Red Hat OpenShift provides an ideal environment for creating scalable, fast, and lightweight applications. Quarkus significantly increases developer productivity with tooling, pre-built integrations, application services, and more. This article presents 10 reasons why you should develop your Quarkus applications on OpenShift.

This article shows you how to install Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBoss EAP) XP 2.0.0 GA with support for Eclipse MicroProfile. Once you’ve enabled Eclipse MicroProfile, you will be able to use its quickstart examples to start developing your own MicroProfile applications with Red Hat CodeReady Studio. In this demonstration, you’ll learn two ways to build and run the MicroProfile Config quickstart application.

In this article, I answer a question that I have seen asked on various forums: Will Quarkus be compatible with Jakarta EE? To understand our answer to that question, it is helpful to know the history of Quarkus and what we’re trying to achieve with it. So, please indulge me while I lay that groundwork.
A short history of Quarkus and Java EE
When Emmanuel Bernard, Jason Greene, Bob McWhirter, and I first discussed kicking off the ThornFly.x proof of concept, which would later become Quarkus, we had conversations about where Java EE (now Jakarta EE) would eventually fit. I think we all agreed that we already had the best open source implementation of Java EE in the form of WildFly and Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBoss EAP). Creating yet another addition to this space seemed confusing at best. At worst, we feared that it would split our engineering and open source community efforts.

Grafana is an awesome visualization tool for seeing real-time metrics from your applications, and you can combine it with MicroProfile and similar tools to create one dashboard for multiple projects. Different projects use different names for metrics, however, so it is often necessary (and tedious) to handcraft the metrics for each project. Moreover, each project can expose its own custom metrics, and each MicroProfile vendor can also produce custom metrics, so there are many manual steps involved if you want to see all of your metrics in one place.
What if you could simply examine a running app and generate a dashboard with all of its exposed metrics? That is exactly what you can do with the MicroProfile Metrics Generator, a new open source tool that I created to dynamically generate Grafana dashboards for any MicroProfile project by capturing and monitoring all of your project metrics. Once you’ve created a dashboard, you can use it with Grafana, customize it to suit specific needs, and save it as a JSON file. You can also periodically regenerate your dashboards to bring in new metrics that you’ve exposed in your application.
In this article, you will learn how to do just that: Use the MicroProfile Metrics Generator to create a unified dashboard for all of your project’s metrics.

This article builds on my previous tutorial, Enable Eclipse MicroProfile applications on Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 7.3. To follow the examples, you must have Eclipse MicroProfile enabled in your Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform Expansion Pack (JBoss EAP XP) 1.0.0.GA installation, via Red Hat CodeReady Studio. See the previous article for installation instructions.
In this article, we will use the installed MicroProfile-enabled image to set up a JBoss EAP XP quickstart project in Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces (CRW). You can also apply what you learn from this article to develop your own applications using CodeReady Workspaces.
Note: For more examples, be sure to see the video demonstration at the end of the article.

Red Hat recently released the first Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform expansion pack (JBoss EAP XP) version 1.0. This version enables JBoss EAP developers to build Java microservices using Eclipse MicroProfile 3.3 APIs while continuing to also support Jakarta EE 8. This article goes into detail on the nature of this new offering and an easy way to get started.

In this article, we show you how to install Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBoss EAP) XP 1.0.0.GA and enable Eclipse MicroProfile support on JBoss EAP. Once you have MicroProfile support enabled, you can start using the quickstart examples or start developing your own application.
You can find a demo video at the end of this article.

I’ve had many proud moments in my role here at Red Hat over the years. Examples include when we released the first version of WildFly, when we acquired the Camel team, when we worked with other vendors to create Eclipse MicroProfile, the great work the Strimzi team did to get into the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, our entire Red Hat Managed Integration effort, Kogito, and the list goes on. I feel like I add to this list of examples on an almost weekly basis.
Well, I can now update this list with the first product release of Quarkus, formally called the Red Hat build of Quarkus. (You can also find more support options on the Quarkus project site.) It should come as no surprise that Quarkus is on this list. I suppose what might surprise some people is that Quarkus is only just a product now. Given all of the activities since we officially launched the Quarkus project in 2019, you could be forgiven for thinking it was already a product.
