The fast-jar packaging format is an alternative to the default JAR packaging format that provides faster startup times for your applications. You can enable fast-jar packaging by setting the following property in the application.properties file of your project:

application.properties

quarkus.package.type=fast-jar

Alternatively, you can append the -Dquarkus.package.type=fast-jar property to the command that you use to package your application:
