A library for composing asynchronous and event-based programs by using observable sequences for the Java VM.
It tailors your application for GraalVM and HotSpot. Amazingly fast boot time, incredibly low RSS memory (not just heap size!) offering near instant scale up and high density memory utilization in container orchestration platforms like Kubernetes. We use a technique we call compile time boot.
Apache FreeMarker
