Security in a Reactive Microservices Architecture

In a reactive system, if something goes down you don’t want it to take the whole ship with it. Security becomes a top priority. In this blog, we’ll address security while designing a reactive authorization architecture. JSON Web Tokens Applying the reactive manifesto to microservice architecture is a difficult problem to solve. One of the more

Stream Smarter: Reactive Systems Using Reactor and Spring

Reactor 3.x is a Java library for writing reactive applications using the Reactive Streams standard. Reactor Core provides a reactive systems implementation similar in style to RxJava 2. Because it is based on standard reactive streams, Reactor can easily integrate with any other reactive streams library (particularly RxJava 2). There are adapters available for RxJava 1

Reactive Microservices in Java Using the Lagom Framework

Microservice architecture is amongst the latest in best practices in software architecture. Essentially, microservices are small, independent applications that provide REST APIs for communication. These applications are akin to the Unix philosophy of small programs: each program does one thing and does it well. Each application should work on its own and be independently deployable,
