Exploring reactive programming in Java

Java Language

When Java 8 was first introduced, it revolutionized the way Java applications were written by providing the core constructs for asynchronous programming and handling data streams. With Java 9-12, these capabilities were extended to the level that allows us to write truly modern, reactive applications with the JDK. In this live-coding session, we explore the building blocks or reactive systems available in the JDK today, which create 8 levels of reactive programming. We specifically focus on JDK 9-12 features, such as updates to the Stream and CompletableFuture APIs, Reactive Streams publish-subscribe framework, HTTP/2 client, and more.
