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.
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
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
