WildFly MicroProfile GraphQL Feature Pack 1.0.0.Final Released!

I am happy to announce that the first Final build of the GraphQL feature pack has been released! It is fully compatible with MicroProfile GraphQL 1.0 and has been tested with WildFly 20 and 21, JDK 8 and 11. It bundles the latest available version of SmallRye GraphQL, and that is 1.0.17.

Client libraries

The feature pack now contains the typesafe GraphQL client libraries. They are now installed as WildFly static modules, so deployments using the client libraries don’t have to carry all the libraries within themselves, they just need to depend on the io.smallrye.graphql.client module.

Layer rename

The graphql layer included in the feature pack was renamed to microprofile-graphql to align with other WildFly layers.

Multiple deployment support

While MicroProfile specifications are generally designed to be used in microservice environments as opposed to application servers with multiple deployments, the GraphQL feature pack does support running with multiple deployments in one WildFly instance. There have been issues with it in the past, but since we now bundle graphql-java 16.1, multiple deployments should work. Note that this support is only on a best-effort basis, and there will probably still be some issues.

Future goodies to look forward to

  • SmallRye Mutiny support and better alignment with reactive programming in general

  • Managed federation (see this article)

  • Other transport protocols apart from HTTP

  • And more!
