Get Started

It’s a snap to be up and running with Microlam.

Step 1

Create the Getting Started Application

Prerequisites: JDK 21+, maven, docker, AWS CLI, AWS CDK CLI

Run this script in your CLI:

mvn archetype:generate -DarchetypeGroupId=io.microlam -DarchetypeArtifactId=microlam-lambda-quickstart -DarchetypeVersion=0.9.10

And answer all the questions:

  • Choose a groupId, artifactId, version and package for your project.
  • Choose your awsBucket : this is the name of the S3 bucket where the lambda artifacts will be deployed
  • Choose your awsProfile : this is the name of your AWS profile
  • Choose your awsRegion: this is the name of an AWS region (ex: eu-west-1)
  • Choose your lambdaName: this is the name of your Lambda (must be also suitable as the name of the Java class for the Lambda).
  • Step 2

    Generate the Lambda package

    Run this script in your CLI:

    mvn package

    At the end of the build, you will find the Java Lambda deployment package in the target/ folder with the name [artifactId]-[version]-aws-lambda.jar.

    Step 3

    Deploy the Getting Started Application to AWS with the CDK

    Run this script in your CLI (first time only):

    cdk bootstrap

    And then

    cdk deploy

    Boom! Your Microlam app is now deployed to AWS
