Time Keeper project

This project uses Quarkus 1.1.1, the Supersonic Subatomic Java Framework. If you want to learn more about Quarkus, please visit its website: .

You can have a look at this project and use it as a simple tutorial, if you want to evaluate Quarkus.

Database with Docker

First we will need a PostgreSQL database; you can launch one easily if you have Docker installed:

eval $(docker-machine env default)


docker run --ulimit memlock=-1:-1 -it --rm=true --memory-swappiness=0 --name timekeeper-db -e POSTGRES_USER=quarkus_test -e POSTGRES_PASSWORD=quarkus_test -e POSTGRES_DB=timekeeper -p 5434:5432 postgres:10.5

Alternatively you can setup a PostgreSQL instance in any another way.

The connection properties of the Agroal datasource are configured in the standard Quarkus configuration file, which you will find in src/main/resources/

Running the application in dev mode

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

./mvnw quarkus:dev

Packaging and running the application

The application is packageable using ./mvnw package. It produces the executable timekeeper-1.0.0-SNAPSHOT-runner.jar file in /target directory. Be aware that it’s not an über-jar as the dependencies are copied into the target/lib directory.

The application is now runnable using java -jar target/timekeeper-1.0.0-SNAPSHOT-runner.jar.

Creating a native executable

If GraalVM is configured on your server, you can create a native executable using: ./mvnw package -Pnative.

Or you can use Docker to build the native executable using: ./mvnw package -Pnative -Dquarkus.native.container-build=true.

You can then execute your binary: ./target/timekeeper-1.0.0-SNAPSHOT-runner

If you want to learn more about building native executables, please consult .

If you want to add a new Quarkus extension :

./mvnw quarkus:add-extension -Dextensions="openapi"

GraalVM on Mac OS

  • Go to
  • Download version 19.2 here
  • unzip
  • move the graalvm-ce-19.2.1 folder to /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines
  • use /usr/libexec/java_home -V to show a list of JVM
  • use /usr/libexec/java_home -v 1.8.0_231 to set the JVM to GraalVM

You can also use jenv utility.

jenv add /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/graalvm-ce-19.2.1/Contents/Home

Check that Graal VM is configured
