Reactive Programming with Java9 & Spring 5
Reactive programming is more and more relevant, as concurrencies grows and data streaming becomes the favorite way to integrate with DBs and Web. The traditional 'Request-Oriented' way of handling client requests causes serious back-pressure and requires lot of computing power in order to supply enough threads. Reactive programming solves this issue by splitting and forking requests in a transparent manner which allows limited number of threads to handle multiple requests. This is mostly addresses the new 'Task-Oriented' approach which also fully supported in HTTP2.
This course explores the building blocks of Reactive Programming in general, and the need. The course then relates to Java 9 Flow API and focuses on practical reactive programming with Spring 5 WebFlux (Flux & Mono). The course allows you to define reactive services, use reactive REST web-services and work reactively with NoSQL (MongoDB).
