Configuring your application to use the PostgreSQL reactive client

In order to delve into the reactive Client API, please refer to the example contained in the Chapter09/pgpool folder in this book's GitHub repository. Since this example won't use the PostgreSQL JDBC driver, the following dependency has been added as a replacement:

<dependency>  <groupId>io.quarkus</groupId>  <artifactId>quarkus-reactive-pg-client</artifactId></dependency>

The other configuration we added was the JDBC URL, which needs to be in the following format:


Therefore, in our example, we will add this setting in

quarkus.datasource.url=vertx-reactive:postgresql://localhost:5432/quarkusdbquarkus.datasource.username=quarkus ...
