Servlet vs Reactive Stacks in Five Use Cases



Rossen Stoyanchev talks about five common use cases in web application development and explores the impact of building on Servlet and Reactive web application stacks. For reactive programming, he uses RxJava and Reactor. For the web stack, he pits Spring MVC vs Spring WebFlux allowing us to move easily between the Servlet and Reactive worlds and drawing a meaningful, apples-to-apples comparison.


Rossen Stoyanchevis a Spring Framework committer at Pivotal in NYC. He is deeply involved in the Spring five effort to enable reactive programming models starting with a reactive foundation for web applications and extending to data, messaging, and more.
