Building Reactive Application with R2DBC

Small Talk
Java & JVM

Reactive programming has been rapidly gaining popularity in the industry lately.

For a long time working with a database in a non-blocking,  backpressure-aware manner in Java was almost impossible.

A few years ago in order to solve this problem, R2DBC specification was created, which is based on reactive stream specification types and allows non-blocking, backpressure-aware database access. Since then an ecosystem has started to appear and evolve around it.

In this talk, I will show what R2DBC specification and the surrounding ecosystem can offer and share our experience of building a solution based on R2DBC and delivering it to the production.
