sbt Native Packager
As others have stated, this is mainly due to the nature of the JVM. You can try using GraalVM however, which basically complies JVM bytecode to native-code avoiding startup time issues, sbt-native-packager lets you do this quite easily.
Updating dependencies is time-consuming.. Solutions like Dependabot or Renovate update but don't merge dependencies. You need to do it manually while it could be fully automated! Add a Merge Queue to your workflow and stop caring about PR management & merging. Try Mergify for free.
