Reactive Application Development

Book Description


Reactive Application Development is a hands-on guide that teaches you how to build reliable enterprise applications using reactive design patterns.

About the Technology

Mission-critical applications have to respond instantly to changes in load, recover gracefully from failure, and satisfy exacting requirements for performance, cost, and reliability. That�s no small task! Reactive designs make it easier to meet these demands through modular, message-driven architecture, innovative tooling, and cloud-based infrastructure.

About the Book

Reactive Application Development teaches you how to build reliable enterprise applications using reactive design patterns. This hands-on guide begins by exposing you to the reactive mental model, along with a survey of core technologies like the Akka actors framework. Then, you�ll build a proof-of-concept system in Scala, and learn to use patterns like CQRS and Event Sourcing. You�ll master the principles of reactive design as you implement elasticity and resilience, integrate with traditional architectures, and learn powerful testing techniques.
