The Reactive Revolution at SpringOne Platform 2019 (part 2/N)

Engineering | Josh Long | October 22, 2019 | ...

Last year right in the middle of SpringOne Platform 2018, I posted the first post in this series, _ The Reactive Revolution at SpringOne Platform 2018 (part 1/N)_, which looked at some of the big features we'd just dropped at SpringOne Platform 2018. I wanted to follow up and revisit that blog and the concepts I'd introduced last year, and show just how far we've come in the intervening year. TL;DR: things are much easier!


Last year, we announced our work on trying to support a standard for reactive SQL data access with a new project called R2DBC. Traditional approaches to SQL data…

Engineering | Josh Long | October 22, 2019 | ...

Hi, Spring fans! What a week! I've just returned from Prague, the Czech Republic, where I was for the epic Geecon Prague 2019 event. (Thanks for voting my talk on Reactive Spring the #1 talk, Prague!). Now I'm in Nantes, France, the DevFest Nantes show. I'd never been to Prague and I've never been to Nantes. So how's that for cool first-time appearances in one week? I'll be speaking about testing here. Tonight I fly to Paris, Fr, for customer meetings. Then I fly on Thursday to St. Petersburg, Russia, for the Joker conference, where I'll be presenting on testing and I'll be co-presenting with…

Spring Cloud Stream - functional and reactive

Engineering | Oleg Zhurakousky | October 17, 2019 | ...

In the previous post, I tried to provide justification for our shift to a functional programming model in Spring Cloud Stream (SCSt). It's less code, less configuration. Most importantly, though, your code is completely decoupled and independent from the internals of SCSt.

In this post, I’ll dig a little deeper and summarize the core features of our functional support, specifically around its reactive features.

IMPORTANT: Anything you can do with @StreamListener/@EnableBinding you can also do without it. In other words, the functional support is now feature-compatible with the annotation-based support.
