As enterprise applications become larger and more distributed, new architectural approaches like reactive designs, microservices, and event streams are required knowledge. Vert.x in Action teaches you to build highly-scalable reactive enterprise applications using the mature, rock-solid Vert.x framework.
Vert.x in Action gets you up to speed in the basics of asynchronous programming as you learn to design and code reactive applications. Using the Vert.x asynchronous APIs, you’ll build services including web stack, messaging, authentication, and access control. You’ll also dive into deployment of container-native components with Docker, Kubernetes, and OpenShift. Along the way, you’ll check your app’s health and learn to test its resilience to external service failures.
Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.
Julien Ponge is a Principal Software Engineer at Red Hat, working on reactive things and the Eclipse Vert.x project. He is on-leave from INSA Lyon where he was an Associate Professor in computer science and engineering, and he remains a research member of the CITI Laboratory. Drawing on his strong background in distributed systems and long-standing open source experience, he’s a regular speaker at user groups and conferences about Vert.x. He’s also the principal author of A gentle guide to asynchronous programming with Eclipse Vert.x for Java developers, which is part of the Vert.x core documentation.
