Quarkus - Funqy HTTP (Standalone)

The guide walks through quickstart code to show you how you can deploy Funqy as a standalone service and invoke on Funqy functions using HTTP.


To complete this guide, you need:

  • less than 15 minutes

  • Read about Funqy Basics. This is a short read!

  • an IDE

  • JDK 1.8+ installed with JAVA_HOME configured appropriately

  • Apache Maven 3.6.2+

The Quickstart

Clone the Git repository: git clone https://github.com/quarkusio/quarkus-quickstarts.git, or download an archive.

The solution is located in the funqy-http-quickstart directory.

The Code

If you look at the Java code, you’ll see that there is no HTTP specific API. Its just simple Java methods annotated with @Funq. Simple, easy, straightforward.

Build Project

mvn clean quarkus:dev

This starts your functions in Quarkus dev mode.

Execute Funqy HTTP functions

Funqy HTTP input and output is always JSON. The Jackson JSON parser is used behind the scenes and you can use Jackson annotations to fine tune your JSON mappings for your input and output objects.

The HTTP POST method can be used to execute any Funqy function. HTTP GET can be used if your function does not have any input. No other HTTP method can be used besides POST and GET.

The URL path to execute a function is the function name. For example if your function name is foo then the URL path to execute the function would be /foo.

You can invoke the hello function defined in PrimitiveFunctions.java by pointing your browser to http://localhost:8080/hello

Invoking the other functions in the quickstart requires an HTTP POST. To execute the greet function defined in GreetingFunction.java invoke this curl script.

curl "http://localhost:8080/greet" \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
-d '{"name":"Bill"}'

Primitive types can also be passed as input using the standard JSON mapping for them. To execute the toLowerCase function defined in PrimitiveFunctions.java invoke this curl script:

curl "http://localhost:8080/toLowerCase" \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \

To execute the double function defined in PrimitiveFunctions.java invoke this curl script:

curl "http://localhost:8080/double" \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
-d '2'

Maven Dependencies

To write Funqy HTTP functions, simply include the quarkus-funqy-http dependency into your Quarkus pom.xml file:
