Vert.x: Beauty and the Beast


We will see how flexible vert.x with Docker can be used for development and deployment of react prototypes as well as for high-performance, fault-tolerant and scalable server solutions.

Vert.x: «Beauty and the Beast» is a technocratic tale of how «DevOps-crazy» Java-developers can use vert.x for creation of scalable and fault-tolerant and microserviced solutions in the real world.

During the talk we gradually will build up a simple functionality of microserviced applications by using vert.x and several programming languages available on the JVM. In real time we collect our microservices by maven and deploy them in Docker-containers. Also in the course of the play we will cross urchin with snake, meaning vert.x with Spring Boot, and raise a simple web server with the WebSocket. The issues of monitoring and profiling of all this zoo will not remain without attention, too.

In the course we will see how flexible vert.x report can be used for developing a prototype from scratch as well as for high-performance server-side and functionality’s extension of existing applications. Also, the talk will be useful if you already bored of developing a standard «blood-enterprised» solutions in heavy application servers, or you are tired of the standard concurrency model in Java and look for another, a lightweight but powerful tool that would also get your former joy of creating software process.
