Introduction to Reactive Spring (TT3355) Course Details:

Spring Data reative allow us to implement database operations relying on Reative Programming APIs. While the Spring R2DBC initiative aims to bring reactive programming to relational databaes, several NoSQL databases already provide this possibility. After an introduction to NoSQL and the MongoDB, this courses covers the APIs available to communicate with this NoSQL database using both blocking and reactive APIs.

Introdcution to Reactive Spring is a comprehensive Java training workshop geared for experienced developers who wish to explore concurrent, asynchronous and reactive programming APIs and techniques using Spring. After an introduction to reactive programming, Reactive Streams and the Project Reactor APIs, this course will show how this APIs are integrated into Spring. Spring 5 includes Spring WebFlux, providing a reactive programming model for web applications, including support for Reactive REST APIs. Spring WebSocket assists in the creation of web applications which provide a full-duplex, two-way communication between client and server.

Reactive Spring focuses on providing an understanding of the fundamental principles and technologies that are used in reactive programming. This understanding is critical to being able to diagnose, troubleshoot, tune, and perform other lifecycle activities.

Working within in an engaging, hands-on learning environment, guided by our expert team, attendees will:

  • Understand the ReactiveX specification
  • Understand the basics of Reactive Programming
  • Discuss the advantages and limitations of Observables
  • Write a client application capable of handling Reactive events
  • Apply operators to event streams to filter, modify and combine the objects emitted by event publishers
  • Select the appropriate type of Event Source
  • Use both Cold and Hot Observables
  • Deal with backpressure problems in reactive programming
  • Develop a reactive web application using Spring WebFlux
  • Define application flows of a WebFlux application
  • Use the WebClient API to work with both synchronous and streaming APIs
  • Develop Unit and Integration tests to test WebFlux endpoints
  • Creating a reactive REST endpoint
  • Become familiar with the basics of WebSockets
  • Create a WebSocket endpoint using Spring
  • Create a WebSocket client
  • Understand the basics of NoSQL
  • Become familiar with the basics of MongoDB
  • Understand how the data in MongoDB can be retrieved using a Reactive API
  • Define Spring Data MongoDB repositories
  • Query the MongoDB using Spring Data
  • Define a reactive repository using MongoDB
  • Explore the Spring Data R2DBC API to perform reactive CRUD operations against a relational database

This hands-on course focuses on ‘learning by doing’, combining expert lecture, practical demonstrations and group discussions with plenty of machine-based real-world programming labs and exercises. Student machines are required.

This in an intermediate-level development course geared for students experienced with Java and Spring programming essentials. In order to be successful in the hands-on portion of the training, you should have incoming practical, hands-on prior experience working with basic Spring concepts and development skills (or attended the suggested pre-requisite courses listed below). This course does not cover Java or Spring development basics.

Java Developers, Application Developers, Full Stack Developers, Technical Managers, Architects.
