Principles of Vertx

About the Book

Eclipse Vertx is my main specialization and I work with it for several years. I developed reactive cloud systems for Mercedes Benz, Raiffeisen Bank, Tesco as well for startups. This book is based on my practical experience and contains real-life notes on such topics:

  • Reactive architecture patterns
  • Event driven communication with Vertx Event Bus
  • Building real-life microservices, like an API gateway or a mail service
  • Server side validation with Vavr
  • Web stack (multi routing, template rendering, CORS)
  • Access MySQL and CouchDB databases
  • Configuration sources management
  • Testing of reactive applications

Additionally, the book touches questions of a communication between Vertx services and client-side Vue JS applications. It provides practical notes on client-side caching and validation.

The book is for all Java/JVM developers, who want to develop modern reactive solutions with Eclipse Vertx.
