Easier Microservice Persistence With Micronaut Data

Duration: 50 mins
Todd Sharp
Developer Advocate, Oracle

In this session I'll introduce you to Micronaut Data, a tool that will make your persistence operations easier to code and more performant than most alternatives. Writing SQL queries is one of the first things you learn as a developer which inevitably leads most developers on a quest to find the easiest, fastest and most performant way to avoid writing SQL queries. Even the simplest application likely has some form of persistence layer which means at some point you'll be thinking about writing some boring, boilerplate CRUD operations. There are many tools available to make this job easier and each of those tools have strengths and weaknesses. Micronaut Data is a new entry into the database access toolkit landscape and delivers improvements on some existing solutions by using AoT compilation to pre-compute queries which are executed by a thin runtime layer. Since the queries are pre-computed, there's no runtime model to consume memory and of course Micronaut Data doesn't use reflection or runtime proxies. The result is a toolkit that is easy to use and highly performant.
