Akka and Java 8 make it possible to create distributed microservice-based systems that just a few years ago were the stuff of dreams. Actor based systems enable developers to create quickly evolving microservice architectures that can elastically scale systems to support huge volumes of data.
Reactive programming offers built-in solutions for some of the most difficult challenges in programming, including concurrency management and flow control. So you might ask - how do I get there; can I introduce it in phases? In this article we transform a legacy application to a reactive model using RxJava.
Recent advancements have revitalized the reactive idea of the MVC architecture. In this article, Brent Chen and Victor Chen show how developers can leverage these new technologies.
