This post is the fifth post of my Introduction to Eclipse Vert.x series. In the last post, we saw how Vert.x can interact with a database. To tame the asynchronous nature of Vert.x, we used
Future objects. In this post, we are going to see another way to manage asynchronous code: reactive programming. We will see how Vert.x combined with Reactive eXtensions gives you superpowers.
Let’s start by refreshing our memory with the previous posts:
- The first post described how to build a Vert.x application with Apache Maven and execute unit tests.
- The second post described how this application became configurable.
- The third post introduced
- In the fourth post, we replaced the in-memory back end with a database and introduced
Futureto orchestrate our asynchronous operations.
