Disclaimer: This is basically me tinkering with tech and keeping
myself busy while I’m looking for a new challenge to take on. I don’t
know if it will ever be released, I don’t know if it will ever reach
1.0. Due to this fact the best documentation is currently
jzenith-example, though I try to keep this up to date as well. If
you want to know what I’m up to check out the Project
jZenith aims to provide out of the box Java based server applications. It tries to keep up to date with the fast changing Java world by having a minimal dependency footprint.
jZenith consists of a core that can be extended by using different plugins, currently there is a PostgreSQL and a REST plugin. All bindings are configured in code in order to allow for a application that is fully initialized at startup time, hopefully allowing GraalVM support in the future.
jZenith is basically some glue code between existing Java libraries. It uses Guice for dependency injection and Vert.x as it’s core technologies.
Snapshots are published to the Sonatype OSS repository, see Using Snapshots Version at the end.
<dependency> <groupId>org.jzenith</groupId> <artifactId>jzenith-core</artifactId> <version>0.1-SNAPSHOT</version> </dependency>
Clone the repository, run
mvn clean install. jZenith currently
expects Java 10 and a fairly current maven.
A typical jZenith main class will look like:
JZenith.application(args) .withPlugins( RestPlugin.withResources(UserResource.class), PostgresqlPlugin.create() ) .withModules(new ServiceLayerModule(), new PersistenceLayerModule(), new MapperModule()) .withConfiguration("postgresql.database", "test") .run();
Modules are simply Guice Modules, as jZenith uses Guice for dependency injection.
Using Snapshot Versions

pom.xml to enable snapshot versions of this
plugin to be used.
