Reactive Programming with Java and Spring
Last updated on 2018-03-02
About the Book
This book is intended for developers that want to learn Reactive Programming patterns using Java and frameworks like Spring WebFlux and Project Reactor. To give a complete overview of a Full Reactive System, it also shows how to create a reactive web page using Angular.
Chapters and Description
1 - Introduction
This chapter describes the different chapters in the book, its goals and prerequisites.
2 - The Reactive Landscape
A brief summary of the different technologies, programming languages and frameworks that enable developers implement Reactive Patterns. It also explains the differences between Reactive Programming and Reactive Systems and where and how to apply them.
3 - Reactive Programming
This chapter goes through the Java 9's Flow API and compares it with Project Reactor and RxJava. The concepts are covered using practical examples, and it includes a reasoned comparison between using Reactive Patterns and Functional and Imperative Programming.
4 - Reactive Web
5 - Going Full Stack Reactive
Within this chapter, the reader will learn how to interact with a database in a reactive style, and how to connect all the pieces: UI, backend's reactive web layer and persistence. The practical part of this chapter shows how to start the full application and see the patterns in action.
6 - Bonus Chapter: Deploying the app with Docker
Given that the practical example consists of many pieces, it's always simpler to use tools like Docker and Docker Compose to be able to run the entire system with just one command: that's what it's covered in this bonus chapter that, even though it's not related with Reactive Patterns, provides useful knowledge to the reader.
7 - Reactive Web Benchmark and Conclusions
Covers an analysis of the differences between using a synchronous Web API and an asynchronous, reactive one.
8 - Epilogue
The book finishes with the book's author conclusions and some advice.
Note that the book is a work in progress, so these contents may vary along the writing process.
