SpringOne2GX 2013 Replay: Reactor - a foundation for asynchronous applications on the JVM

Recorded at SpringOne2GX 2013 in Santa Clara, CA.

Speakers: Jon Brisbin, Stephane Maldini Reactor was recently made public after a two-year incubation, evolving slowly alongside frameworks like Storm, Akka, Play, GPars or Vert.x. Integrated with Grails starting with version 2.3, Reactor takes the best ideas from several asynchronous toolsets and synthesizes them into a coherent framework that supports a variety of runtime topologies and makes it easy for developers to efficiently leverage their cloud or traditional hardware assets. Reactor is equally at home inside or outside a Spring ApplicationContext and also provides first-class Groovy support in the form of DSLs and language extensions. Special attention has been given to make Reactor easy enough to use to create single-file node.js-like applications, while maintaining a solid asynchronous toolset that works with Big and Fast Data tools like Gemfire, Spring Integration, and Spring Batch. This talk will give Reactor a proper introduction and show sample code that demonstrates the event-driven and composition-based nature of Reactor applications.
