NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
This blip is not on the current edition of the radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the radar.Understand more

Reactor is a library for building non-blocking applications on the JVM — version 8 and above — based on the Reactive Streams specification. Reactive programming emphasizes moving from imperative logic to asynchronous, non-blocking and functional style code, especially when dealing with external resources. Reactor implements the reactive stream specification and provides two publisher APIs — Flux (0 to N elements) and Mono (0 or 1 element) — to effectively model push-based stream processing. Reactor project is well suited for microservices architecture and offers back pressure–ready network engines for HTTP, WebSockets, TCP and UDP traffic.
