WebClient

In Chapter 6Dynamic Rendering, we discussed using the Spring WebClient to make web calls in a non-blocking and asynchronous manner. The operators that we have discussed so far are applicable to Reactive Stream publishers and subscribers. WebClient also produces a Mono publisher of ServerResponse. So, how should we handle errors generated in WebClient, and generate a valid response? First, let's take a look at WebClient's default handling of server-side errors. To do this, we should first generate errors in our Fibonacci handler function, as follows:

   @Bean    RouterFunction<ServerResponse> fibonacciEndpoint() {        Flux<Long> fibonacciGenerator = Flux.generate(() -> Tuples.<Long,                Long>of(0L, 1L), (state, sink) -> { throw new RuntimeException("Method ...
