Programming Promises in Java 8 Using Completable Futures

Video description

Reactive and asynchronous applications are growing in popularity, but what is the best way to build them? This course helps you apply the latest concurrency techniques to develop state of the art Java applications necessary for the microservices/service oriented architecture (SOA) model. It builds upon the theory described in the associated "Asynchronous Programming in Java" course, by refactoring several projects using Java 8’s CompletableFutures class. It explains the concept behind CompletableFutures, examines the problems they solve for Java developers, and shows through examples how to use the API productively in practice. The course is designed for software architects and intermediate- to advanced-level Java developers.

  • Understand how to program event-driven reactive code using Java 8 and CompletableFutures
  • Gain experience implementing reactive code in a readable and maintainable way
  • Learn to build reliable and performant Java apps for the microservices/SOA model
