6:15-7:45: Micronaut and SPA’s: A Perfect Pair

Micronaut is a full-stack JVM framework for building modular, easily testable microservice applications. Unlike reflection-based IoC frameworks, Micronaut provides advanced dependency injection and AOP support at compilation time. As a result, your application startup time and memory usage are reduced to a minimum, regardless of the size of your codebase.

Single Page Application (SPA) frameworks have gained a lot of popularity in recent years and for good reasons. SPA applications offer a very fast and responsive user experience in a web browser and encourage a good separation of concerns between your server side logic and your client side logic.

SPAs generally communicate with a REST backend service. Micronaut is perfect technology for building REST backend services and is perfect technology for coupling with SPA front ends to create performant, easily managed robust web applications.
