An introduction to Reactive Programming with RxJava – Part #3: Convert a traditional web application to a reactive one

In my last two blog entries, I’ve given an introduction to reactive programming and RxJava. In this third and final part, I will show how you can convert a traditional web application to a reactive one. All the code will be available at https://gitlab.com/perlilja/rxAirlineDemo, there will also be the instructions on how to run the application. To get a full insight, I suggest you read the code. The final version is merged into the master branch, and the original version is…

An introduction to Reactive Programming with RxJava – Part #2

In my last blog entry, I gave a short introduction to reactive programming. In this part, I will provide a brief introduction to a reactive framework called RxJava. Yep, know I promised you some practical examples, and there will be some. However, I couldn’t fit everything in, which means it will be a part 3 as well.  RxJava is an implementation of the Reactive Extensions Library, for the JVM (Java Virtual Machine). It’s building on the Observable design pattern, which means…

An introduction to Reactive Programming with RxJava – Part #1

In the following two-part series I will explain the basics of Reactive Programming (pt. 1) and further give some practical examples by using the RxJava framework (pt. 2). Today’s system and applications have a growing demand on how to handle an increasing amount of data, a massive number of concurrent users, an up-time that should be almost 100% and at the same time have a quick and responsive system or UI. These changes have led to that a lot of…
