Hands-On Reactive Programming in Spring 5

Build cloud-ready, reactive systems with Spring 5 and Project Reactor

Publisher Description

Explore the reactive system and create efficient microservices with Spring Boot 2.1 and Spring Cloud

Key FeaturesUnderstand the kind of system modern businesses require with SpringGain deeper insights into reactive programming with Reactor and Spring CloudGet in-depth knowledge on asynchronous and nonblocking communication with Spring 5 WebFluxBook Description

These days, businesses need a new type of system that can remain responsive at all times. This is achievable with reactive programming; however, the development of these kinds of systems is a complex task, requiring a deep understanding of the domain. In order to develop highly responsive systems, the developers of the Spring Framework came up with Project Reactor.

Hands-On Reactive Programming in Spring 5 begins with the fundamentals of Spring Reactive programming. You’ll explore the endless possibilities of building efficient reactive systems with the Spring 5 Framework along with other tools such as WebFlux and Spring Boot. Further on, you’ll study reactive programming techniques and apply them to databases and cross-server communication. You will advance your skills in scaling up Spring Cloud Streams and run independent, high-performant reactive microservices.

By the end of the book, you will be able to put your skills to use and get on board with the reactive revolution in Spring 5.1!

This book is for Java developers who use Spring to develop their applications and want to build robust and reactive applications that can scale in the cloud. Basic knowledge of distributed systems and asynchronous programming will help you understand the concepts covered in this book.

Oleh Dokuka is an experienced software engineer, Pivotal Champion, and one of the top contributors to Project Reactor and Spring Framework. He knows the internals of both frameworks very well and advocates reactive programming with Project Reactor on a daily basis. Along with that, the author applies Spring Framework and Project Reactor in software development, so he knows how to build reactive systems using these technologies. Igor Lozynskyi is a senior Java developer who primarily focuses on developing reliable, scalable, and blazingly fast systems. He has over seven years of experience with the Java platform. He is passionate about interesting and dynamic projects both in life and in software development.
