Annotation Interface RuntimeStart

Run time of the application (as opposed to build time).

This is from the point of view of ahead of time compilation, such as when using GraalVM native-image.

There are two phases of an application lifecycle:

  • BuildTimeStart - Application should not connect anywhere, this is to initialize the environment before native-image is generated. Configuration available is build-time specific and MUST not be used for runtime operation of this application
  • Runtime (this annotation) - Application is starting and should set up all resources. Configuration available at runtime is intended for runtime of this application

Example of usage in a CDI Extension:

 void initRuntime(@Observes @RuntimeStart io.helidon.config.Config config) {}
End of runtime is equivalent to end of ApplicationScoped, so there is no need to create additional annotations.
