Building and understanding reactive microservices using Eclipse Vert.x and distributed tracing

Building and understanding reactive microservices using Eclipse Vert.x and distributed tracing

I recently had the opportunity to speak at Red Hat Summit 2019. In my session, titled “Vert.x application development with Jaeger distributed tracing,” I discussed how scalable event-driven applications could be built with Eclipse Vert.x, a Java Virtual Machine toolkit for building reactive applications.

Thanks to many developer tools, creating these applications is no longer the most effort-consuming task in IT. Instead, we now have to understand how parts of our application function together to deliver a service, (across dev, test and production environments).  This can be difficult because, with distributed architectures, external monitoring only tells you the overall response time and the number of invocations, providing no insight into the individual operations. Additionally, log entries for a request are scattered across numerous logs. This article discusses the use of Eclipse Vert.x, distributed tracing, and Jaeger in the context of this problem.
