Micronaut, a JVM-based framework for building microservices applications, promises to aid startup times, throughput, and memory footprint.
The features in Micronaut
Micronaut is designed to function as both a client and server framework in a microservices environment. Key to Micronaut is the use of annotation processors that precompile metadata and information needed to run an application. This results in reduced runtime overhead for memory consumption and startup time.
The framework also offers support for unit testing and minimal use of reflection and proxies.
