Red Hat Advances Java on Kubernetes

Red Hat, Inc., a provider of open source solutions, has announced an expansion of its application services portfolio with the addition of Quarkus as a fully supported framework in Red Hat Runtimes, the company said.

With Quarkus, Red Hat is advancing Java on Kubernetes and bridging the gap between traditional Java applications and cloud-native environments.

Java was introduced 25 years ago and to this day, remains one of the most popular programming languages among developers. By adding Quarkus as a supported runtime, Red Hat is helping to bring Java into the modern, cloud-native application development landscape and to approaches like microservices, containers and serverless that are enabling organizations to push the envelope on productivity, efficiency, agility and scale, and enabling Java developers to continue working in the language they know and love.

With Quarkus, users are getting a fully Red Hat supported technology, which includes an active community, continuous updates, and a fast release cadence.

As a full-Stack, Kubernetes-native Java framework that has been optimized for memory density and rapid startup time, Quarkus enables organizations to advance existing application environments and extend years of investment in Java for mission-critical systems. The open source project has been crafted from a selection of Java technologies and standards, and offers developers an adaptable development model that is designed to combine both imperative and reactive styles in a seamless, unified user experience.
