Introducing RxJava into a Spring Boot REST API



Simon Baslé and Laurent Doguin describe how one can migrate code into a fully async and RxJava-based application, built upon Spring Boot and Java 8. They discuss what kind of changes this requires and what shifts in thinking, what are the traps and pitfalls to avoid.


Simon Baslé is a software development aficionado, Editor at InfoQFR, SDK Engineer at Couchbase. Laurent Doguin is a Couchbase Developer Advocate for Java developers and the French community.

  • Can Be Condesnsed With Same Info

    One hour and 34 minutes is just too long! Got to be able to condense this presentation in under 55 minutes with the same info. Also you got to have personality in your presentation. You sound like a robot talking with no emotions. All presenters need to learn how to present in such a way to keep the audience engaged. This is basic presentation skills.

    I found this a useful intro to RxJava. I did skip a bit of the middle as I was more interested in how to make the REST controller methods asynchronous. It would be nice to have an example of a website consuming an asyncronous web service.
