Micronaut vs Spring Boot

St. Louis: St. Louis-based solutions engineering firm Object Computing Inc. (OCI) on Sunday announced the first release candidate (RC1) for Micronaut, a new framework for building Microservice and Serverless Applications.

Micronaut was built by the same software engineering team that developed and maintains the open source web application framework, Grails, used by Fortune 100 and 500 organizations across the globe, according to Business Wire.

Organizations migrating from on-premises, monolithic application architectures to cloud-native, microservice architectures will experience significant gains in efficiency thanks to Micronaut’s robust range of capabilities.

"Micronaut enables organizations to optimize the development and deployment of mission-critical microservice applications by enhancing developer productivity and simplifying software testing", the leading firm said.

"Micronaut RC1 includes a rich set of features, including dependency injection, AOP, and configuration management, which significantly optimize compute resources and enable simple deployment to cloud environments. Additional features include an innovative compile-time annotation processing engine, support for common discovery services, distributed tracing tools, cloud runtimes, and more", it said.

Elaborating further Micronaut co-founder Jeff Brown said, “Micronaut is a better fit for building microservices than Grails or Spring Boot in part because Micronaut does not depend on the runtime reflection inherent in Spring-based solutions."

“Runtime reflection is expensive in terms of runtime performance and memory consumption. With Micronaut, we’ve eliminated runtime reflection, which enables highly performant applications with minimal memory footprint", he added.

Micronaut was unveiled by co-founder, Graeme Rocher, at Greach Conference in Madrid on March 16, 2018, and open sourced on Github on May 23, 2018.

Object Computing Inc. (OCI) builds high-performance, real-time, mission-critical systems and integration solutions with a focus on making solutions more open, bringing the added benefits of massive scalability, reusability, interoperability, and affordability to our clients.
