Running the application in dev mode

You can run your application in dev mode that enables live coding using:

./gradlew quarkusDev

NOTE: Quarkus now ships with a Dev UI, which is available in dev mode only at http://localhost:8080/q/dev/.

Packaging and running the application

The application can be packaged using:

./gradlew build

It produces the quarkus-run.jar file in the build/quarkus-app/ directory. Be aware that it’s not an über-jar as the dependencies are copied into the build/quarkus-app/lib/ directory.

The application is now runnable using java -jar build/quarkus-app/quarkus-run.jar.

If you want to build an über-jar, execute the following command:

./gradlew build -Dquarkus.package.type=uber-jar

The application, packaged as an über-jar, is now runnable using java -jar build/*-runner.jar.

Creating a native executable

You can create a native executable using:

./gradlew build -Dquarkus.package.type=native

Or, if you don’t have GraalVM installed, you can run the native executable build in a container using:

./gradlew build -Dquarkus.package.type=native -Dquarkus.native.container-build=true

You can then execute your native executable with: ./build/aws-lambda-quarkus-1.0-SNAPSHOT-runner
