Quarkus 2.7.0.Final released - Quarkus CLI maturing, Interactive terminal, Oracle Reactive SQL Client...

2-2-2022 would have been a perfect day to release a 2.2.2.Final version of Quarkus but we didn’t get that lucky. Today we announce the release of Quarkus 2.7.0.Final.

2.7.0.Final comes with a lot of refinements and new features:

  • Lots of improvements for the Quarkus CLI, that has now been published to Homebrew, SDMAN!…​

  • An interactive terminal for dev mode

  • SmallRye Stork 1.0.0

  • An Oracle Reactive SQL Client extension

  • Kotlin serialization support for RESTEasy Reactive

  • Hibernate Search 6.1

  • mongo+srv:// support in native executables

And much more!

Migration Guide

To migrate from 2.6, please refer to our migration guide.

What’s new?

Quarkus CLI

The Quarkus CLI is maturing and we are now publishing it in more places:

  • Homebrew

  • JBang


More will come soon.

For all the instructions to install the Quarkus CLI, please refer to the dedicated guide.

We have also started to refine our documentation with instructions for the CLI, Maven and Gradle. This is a work in progress so not all guides are updated, it will get to completion in the following weeks.

If you make use of the CLI, please provide us your feedback either in our tracker or in the discussions area.

Slightly related, you can now define the Java version you want to use in your generated projects. For instance with:

  • --java=17 for the CLI

  • -DjavaVersion="17" for Maven

Interactive terminal

Dev mode now comes with an interactive terminal. Press : when in dev mode to open it.

This feature is very extensible so if you have ideas to enhance it, don’t hesitate to open feature (or pull) requests.

Native Reference Guide

We don’t generally add a release note entry for new guides but this one is well worth it. If you want to understand better how native executables are built and how you can work with them, read our new Native Reference Guide.

SmallRye Stork

SmallRye Stork, our service discovery and client-side load-balancing framework has been bumped to 1.0.0. It comes with many improvements and a refined documentation:

OpenId Connect

We simplified the configuration for well-known OIDC providers such as GitHub, Google, Apple…​ More information can be found in the guide.

Hibernate ORM

quarkus.hibernate-orm.database.default-catalog and quarkus.hibernate-orm.database.default-schema can now be set at runtime (they were fixed at build time until now).

The Hibernate Search extension now uses Hibernate Search 6.1:

  • Hibernate Search is now tested to work up to and including Elasticsearch 7.16

  • Hibernate Search is now able to work with OpenSearch 1.0 to 1.2, with just a single change in your configuration properties.

  • Hibernate Search can now push entity change events to an outbox table in the database and coordinate between multiple instances of the application to process these events and reindex entities. This opt-in, preview feature allows for safer concurrent index updates with lower overhead on commit. Learn more in this section of the guide.

  • Hibernate Search 6.1 also includes many smaller improvements, such as new search predicates or the ability to provide Elasticsearch index settings or mappings as JSON; see the official Hibernate Search 6.1 webpage for more details.


We added experimental support for mongo+srv:// in native executables (it was only working in JVM mode pre-2.7).

Reactive REST Client

The Reactive REST Client now supports proxy authentication and global proxy settings.

Oracle Reactive SQL Client

Until now, we were only supporting Oracle with JDBC. 2.7 introduces a new reactive SQL client for Oracle.

Kotlin serialization

Support for Kotlin serialization has been added to RESTEasy Reactive.


Metrics for the Cache extension are now recorded with Micrometer.

JNDI disabled by default

Except when an extension actually requires it to function properly, we are now disabling JNDI by default.


  • The image chosen for JIB now depends on the Java version you target.

  • We have a new extension for buildpacks: quarkus-container-image-buildpack.

Where is Kogito?

Due to some infra issues, the Kogito extensions are not part of the 2.7.0.Final. If you are using Kogito, stay on 2.6.3.Final until we release Quarkus 2.7.1.Final, which will bring back the Kogito extensions.
