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 radarUnderstand more

Resilience4j is a lightweight fault tolerance library inspired by Netflix Hystrix. We like its lightweight and modular structure where we pull in specific modules for specific capabilities such as circuit-breaking, rate-limiting, retry, and bulkhead. While service meshes are taking on some of the fault tolerance capabilities, fault tolerance libraries continue to remain a key component of our systems for more nuanced domain-specific fault tolerance behavior and for non-containerized services. With Hystrix going into maintenance mode, Resilience4j becomes a default choice in the Java ecosystem. It can work with synchronous APIs as well as reactive ones. It also surfaces metrics to dropwizard metrics, Prometheus and others using additional modules.
