How to start with Spring web-flux

Reading Time: 4 minutes Spring Boot provides very good support for building RESTful Web Services for enterprise applications. This blog will explain building RESTful web services using Spring Boot in detail with a pinch of reactive programming using web flux. I will mostly be walking through the code snippets which we can use to quickly start with the web flux without having to dive deep. It is like a Continue Reading

Introduction to Spring WebFlux

Reading Time: 2 minutes What is Spring WebFlux? Spring Webflux is a fully non-blocking, annotation-based web framework built on Project Reactor that allows you to build reactive applications on the HTTP layer. WebFlux uses a new router feature to apply functional programming to the web layer and bypass declarative controllers and Request Mappings. It internally uses Project Reactor and its publisher implementations Flux and Mono. It supports two programming Continue Reading

Features of Spring Webflux

Reading Time: 3 minutes Parallel to Spring MVC, Spring WebFlux fully supports non-blocking reactive streams. It utilizes Netty as an internal server to run reactive applications, and it supports the back pressure notion. If you are comfortable with the Spring MVC programming model, working with webflux will be simple for you. Project Reactor serves as the reactive library for Spring WebFlux. All of Reactor’s operators support non-blocking back pressure Continue Reading

Reactive programming added modeling data and events Continue Reading

Getting started with Spring Webflux

Reading Time: 3 minutes Overview Hello everyone, In this blog, I am going to discuss an introduction to webflux. The original web framework included in the Spring Framework, Spring Web MVC, was purpose-built for the Servlet API and Servlet containers. The reactive-stack web framework, SpringWebFlux was added later in version 5.0. What is Spring Webflux? Spring Webflux is fully non-blocking and supports Reactive Streams back pressure. It runs on Continue Reading

Passing query parameters through your WebClient

Reading Time: 5 minutes We can use spring-boot:webflux’s WebClient to invoke a third-party service from within our spring boot application. This is asynchronous and reactive method supplied by spring for invoking of unmanaged services. We also saw how we can pass query params when invoking a 3rd party service and which case to chose with our requirements. Be cautious with what you are using and always document what you want and what you created so that things like these can be caught early during the development phase.
