As an application developer, you can use Red Hat build of Quarkus to create microservices-based applications written in Java that run on OpenShift and serverless environments. Applications compiled to native executables have small memory footprints and fast startup times.

This guide describes how to configure a Quarkus application using the Eclipse MicroProfile Config method or YAML format. The procedures include configuration examples created using the Quarkus config-quickstart exercise.


  • Have OpenJDK (JDK) 11 installed and the JAVA_HOME environment variable specifies the location of the Java SDK.

    • Log in the Red Hat Customer Portal to download the Red Hat build of Open JDK from the Software Downloads page.
  • Have Apache Maven 3.8.1 or higher installed.

  • Have Maven configured to use artifacts from the Quarkus Maven repository.
