Reactive Application

Project Reactor – Part 1

Reading Time: 2 minutes In this blog, I would be providing an overview of the spring reactor project, which is a reactive library based on the reactive specifications so let’s get started. Introduction Spring framework started support for reactive programming in version 5 via project reactor. Project Reactor is a fully non-blocking foundation with back-pressure support also included. It’s the foundation of the reactive stack in the Spring ecosystem Continue Reading

Spring Reactor

Reading Time: 5 minutes 1. Overview In this article, we’ll get introduced to the Spring Reactor project and its importance. The idea is to take advantage of the Reactive Streams Specification to build non-blocking reactive applications on the JVM. Using this knowledge, we’ll try to build a simple reactive application and compare it to a traditional blocking application. 2. Conventional APIs are blocking Modern applications deal with a high number of concurrent users Continue Reading

Redux Saga Effects

Reading Time: 6 minutes Effects are the kind of utility that’s provided by the redux-saga package. when u invokes effects it returns object contains instructions which redux-saga interprets. The effects don’t have any special property outside the redux-saga application because it’s redux-saga that generates side effects like API call database or something else, The effect itself doesn’t actually do anything. If you don’t know how to create a Saga, Continue Reading

Reactive Streams with JAVA 9

Please visit my earlier blog on Reactive streams to understand the basic ideologies which are working behind it like the push-pull model or backpressure. As a part of this blog, we will explore how we can leverage the same Continue Reading

Functional Java: It’s good to be lazy

Reading Time: 5 minutes In Java, we are often tempted towards writing a code which is executed eagerly. There’s a good reason for that – eager code is easy to write and to reason about. But delaying commitments until the last responsible moment is a good agile practice. When executing the code, we can gain performance by being just a little lazy.  In this blog, we will try to Continue Reading
