Bootique has very low startup time / memory use. Assembled apps are small. Only the dependencies you need are included.
Apps are made of explicit modules, managed at build time. App features don't activate on their own, you are always in control.
Bootique helps to integrate any third-party library or framework ... for any kind of apps: web, RESTful services, jobs, CLI tools, JavaFX GUI, etc.
Bootique brings POSIX CLI to Java. You'd link CLI switches with Bootique command objects. There's built in CLI help in every app.
It feels like Dropwizard 2.0 has arrived. Eager to try it out.
Emphasizing 2 points @andrus_a made based on my experience w/ @BootiqueProject after 2 yrs of Spring Boot, MUCH faster startup, MUCH smaller apps. It's hard to go back to Spring Boot once you're familiar with Bootique
Bootique is one of my favorite server-side frameworks and it got a lot of improvements and QOL changes recently
Seems @BootiqueProject is going to be a minialized version of @springboot. Yet another minimalized Microservices framework! @phillip_webb
I like @BootiqueProject. Nice to see some competition to Spring Boot. I haven't spend time working with it yet. At a glance the modular approach, with less magic, has the potential to make apps easier to reason about, faster and simpler to test. bootique.io/
