The state of reactive database access
Nowadays Reactive System becomes a trending technique for building Elastic and Resilient Applications. Also, such a technique promotes the reactive, non-blocking, and asynchronous communication between components so our system may use resources efficiently. Unfortunately, it means that non-blocking should be supported at all system levels, and one of those layers is a database. In this talk, we are going to expand you a horizon of Reactive interaction with Database. Then, we are going to overview which databases support Reactive access and how it is implemented under-the-hood. Finally, we are going to cover the most important topic which is Reactive JDBC access, is the state of Reactive here, whether Asynchronous JDBC is reactive, and how Pivotal made their own reactive JDBC?
