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
Future to orchestrate our asynchronous operations.
In this post, we are not going to add a new feature. Instead, we’ll explore another programming paradigm: reactive programming.

Are you interested in writing cloud-native applications? Want to learn about building reactive microservices? Would you like to find out how to quickly get started with Vert.x, Wildfly Swarm, or Node.js in the cloud with Red Hat OpenShift Application Runtimes? Are you an Enterprise Java developer looking to try new programming paradigms?
To learn about modern application development, join us at Red Hat Summit 2018 for sessions such as:

In my previous post, Introduction to Eclipse Vert.x, we developed a very simple Vert.x application and saw how this application can be tested, packaged, and executed. That was nice, wasn’t it? Well, that was only the beginning. In this post, we are going to enhance our application to support external configuration, and learn how to deal with different configuration sources.

I had the pleasure to present “Eclipse Vert.x for Dj fun and for profit!” at the latest edition of the Jug Summer Camp in La Rochelle, France.
The Jug Summer Camp is a popular developer conference organized by Serli in western France, gathering regional attendees as well as speakers and participants from other French Java user groups.

This year JavaOne 2017 is being held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA during October 1-5, I will be a holding a session for reactive programming covering The Reactive Landscape.In this session, I’m going to explain what does “reactive” mean.

Reactive, what an overloaded word. Many things turn out to become magically Reactive these days. In this post, we are going to talk about Reactive Programming, i.e. a development model structured around asynchronous data streams.
I know you are impatient to write your first reactive application, but before doing it, there are a couple of things to know. Using reactive programming changes how you design and write your code. Before jumping on the train, it’s good to know where you are heading.
In this post, we are going to explain 5 things about reactive programming to see what it changes for you.
