I hasten to add that Scalaz is an awesome Scala library for functional programming. It’s no wonder, then, that Jonas Boner, the driving force behind the reactive programming movement—now a truly full-fledged community of its own—was so pleased by the publication of this book, a couple of years ago (in 2017). Two standout chapters (in Reactive Design Patterns) that especially resonated with me—and IMHO are not-to-be-missed—which I want to bring to your attention are these, along with the titles of sub-sections, to better give you a flavor of the coverage: Chapter 9. We’ve already seen examples of collection methods chained together to implement nontrivial logic with a minimum of code. It offers a careful walk-through of core FRP operations and introduces the concepts and techniques you'll need to use FRP in any language. Higher-order, pure functions are called combinators, because they compose together very well as flexible, fine-grained building blocks for constructing larger, more complex programs. The pattern, revisited 17.2. Principled failure handlingChapter 8. Dealing with stateChapter 8. Book Description: In today’s app-driven era, when programs are asynchronous and responsiveness is so vital, reactive programming can help you write code that’s more reliable, easier to … In further amplifying and elaborating this theme, the author himself (Vaughn Vernon) notes in the Preface to Reactive Messaging Patterns with the Actor Model: Applications and Integration in Scala and Akka that: Today, many software projects fail… At the same time, some notable successes can be found among companies that use Scala and Akka to push the limits of performance and scalability. One example is the unfortunate emerging misconception that Reactive is nothing but programming in an asynchronous and nonblocking style using callbacks or stream-oriented combinators—techniques that are aptly classified as Reactive Programming. (The only other book that approaches this lavish navigational finesse has got to be Programming in Scala: A comprehensive step-by-step guide, Third Edition (Artima Press) by Martin Odersky, Lex Spoon, and Bill Venners. Applying the pattern 17.3.3. Replication patternsChapter 14. I think that leveraging those patterns using the Actor model will give architects and developers the means to tread on familiar turf, besides that the patterns are highly applicable in this space. Chapter 2. The release of Java 9 builds on what made Java 8 so exciting. Jonas Boner (Founder of the Akka Project) articulates this point really nicely in his Foreword to Functional and Reactive Domain Modeling in noting thatWhat captured me about this book is that it sets out on the rather bold mission of bringing together these three very different tools—domain-driven design, functional programming, and reactive principles—in a practical way. It uses Java 9 to introduce the declarative and functional paradigm, which is necessary to write programs in the Reactive style. From this point on, the book focuses on RxJava in depth. This has fundamentally changed our industry, and the need for a solid foundation to model concurrent and distributed processes is greater than ever…, I’m really excited about Vaughn’s book. Read this book using Google Play Books app on your PC, android, iOS devices. Raoul-Gabriel Urma, Mario Fusco, Alan Mycroft. Several standout chapters, which deserve careful reading—and rereading—are worth pointing out: While you won’t find any annoying hand-holding, the authors do take great care to show you the way, starting with basics, and taking you all the way to expert practitioner-level knowledge! Functional programming primer Chapter 4. The true spirit of delight, the exaltation, the sense of being more than Man, which is the touchstone of the highest excellence, is to be found in mathematics as surely as poetry. Pure functions and immutability drastically reduce the occurrence of bugs. So, how, exactly, does one slay complexity when it threatens to hang, albatross-like, over our lovingly-crafted bits of code? The book’s unerring focus on practicality—all the while highlighting best practices—is very pleasing and helpful. In the words of The Reactive Manifesto: We believe that a coherent approach to systems architecture is needed, and we believe that all necessary aspects are already recognized individually: we want systems that are Responsive, Resilient, Elastic and Message Driven. This is not a bad thing; ideas need to evolve to stay relevant. I can think offhand to a fine post by Debasish: Does Category Theory make you a Better Programmer? , Hey, hey, now. What’s up with that? What I appreciated the most about this book is the thorough and pragmatic approach taken by Debasish to weave three topics—each broad (and deep) in their own right—into a coherent narrative, copiously illustrated by high-quality code that you can load into your IDE (I used IntelliJ IDEA) and run. Manning's bestselling Java 8 book has been revised for Java 9 and Java 10! One reviewer (Antonio Magnaghi, PhD, OpenMail) has correctly pointed out this book is. Message flow, 3. Resource-management patternsChapter 15. Tell me quick! Roland is an unusually clear and deep thinker; he coauthored the Reactive Manifesto, has been the technical lead for the Akka project for several years, has coauthored and taught the very popular Coursera course on Reactive programming and design, and is the best technical writer I have met. This book also does a great job of formalizing and naming many of the patterns that users in the Akka community have had to discover and reinvent themselves over the years. Yeah, right up there with, “Sorry, but Fido ate my homework last night while I wasn’t watching.”). Testing reactive applicationsChapter 12. RxSwift: Reactive Programming with Swift authored by Florent Pillet, Junior Bontognali, Marin Todorov, and Scott Gardner, raywenderlich.com. ##About the Author ###Rick Hightower Rick started writing books about Java in 1997 when he worked as a research engineer at Intel focusing on Java middleware.

Chapter 2, Functional Programming with Kotlin and RxKotlin, chapter walks you through the essential concepts of functional programming paradigms and their possible implementations on Kotlin so that you can understand functional reactive programming easily. Chapter 2. This is the code repository for Reactive Programming With Java 9, published by Packt.It contains all the supporting project files necessary to work through the book … I have extensive experience in diverse domains and industries. State management and persistence patterns. He contributed to five books. And yes, I’ve been there, done that—and got the T-shirt! Cool. You don’t need to explicitly declare the type of request; the Scala compiler is smart enough to do so on its own and to infer the type. In their book, Enterprise Integration Patterns, they provide a catalog of some 65 integration patterns that have helped countless teams to successfully integrate disparate systems in the enterprise. Courses. Modern Java in Action. My hope in doing so—and I have spent serious time grappling with the material in each book—is that you, too, will thereby be equipped to design systems that are (one more time!) I am also confident that those who make use of these tools would stand by their platform decisions as ones that were key to their successes. What is a reactive application? for any fellow programmer who has bludgeoned their head over how much math they need—specifically, category theory—to really grok how to use these mathematical concepts of category theory in their daily programming—and apply salve to your hurting head—this book is a balm . One thing I really, really like about this book is the abundance of useful diagrams and code snippets, all of which are profusely annotated with thoughtful comments! I’m based in Austin (Texas) as a Senior Data Engineer with UnitedHealth Group. The contents of this book are overwhelming—in a good way—so much that is of such high quality: the caliber of writing, the sparkling-clear illustrations, the stellar code snippets, We got a brand new entrant to the field of this select list, which is, IMHO, featuring the very best in reactive programming books published to date (we’re currently in Q1 of 2019, right?). Mutable state is the source of the most pernicious bugs, the ones that are hardest to detect with testing before deploying to production, and often the hardest bugs to fix. Sharing nothing simplifies concurrency 9.4. Here’s a typical Scala tip from the book: Scala tip: implicit parameters Getting started with reactive web applications, Chapter 1. Chapter 1. The problem setting 17.3.2. No sooner do I plunk down my copy of The Tao of Microservices—its cover adorned by an illustration of the benevolently meditating beatific Emperor Reigen of Japan, the 112th emperor of Japan—than there is hushed silence. View all posts by sftwr2020. I first became aware of these crucial design strategies from another fine book entitled Release It! This book shows you how to solve "callback hell" with RxJava and shows you how to write thread-safe code without hanging onto state variables which comes in handy for cloud computing software-as-a-service issues, especially when dealing with big data processes through streaming. It teaches you how things like bounded contexts, domain events, functions, monads, applicatives, futures, actors, streaming, and CQRS can help keep complexity under control. Fault tolerance and recovery patternsChapter 13. In this post, we will discuss the principles of reactive programming, which problems is it trying to solve and discuss the basics of reactive programming in Java. State management and persistence patterns. A complete and exhaustive source of best practices for large-scale, real-world reactive platforms. Further, I believe that many enterprise architects and developers have been educated by the work of Gregor Hohpe and Bobby Woolf. If you're a C++ developer interested in using reactive programming to build asynchronous and concurrent applications, you'll find this book extremely useful. Message passingChapter 5. Now far ahead the Road has gone, It outlines what Reactive architecture/design is all about, and does an excellent job explaining it from first principles in a practical context. Allow me to re-introduce a book that is almost lyrical in the beauty and elegance with which it tackles an incredibly tough subject, actually three whole subjects, to be precise: Functional and Reactive Domain Modeling by Debasish Ghosh. Deploying reactive Play applicationsChapter 11. Flow control patternsChapter 17. The Sharding pattern 17.2.1. Applying the pattern 17.1.3. To appreciate the value proposition of this book, I invite you to spend some time poring over its Foreword. For example, the index.scala.html template will be compiled to a Scala function that has a signature close to the following: Pondering the far reaches of the amazing Actor Model! It is entitled Reactive Web Applications: With Play, Akka, and Reactive Streams by Manuel Bernhardt (Manning Publications). Table of Contents. And what, exactly, is that owl (the one with its wings outstretched) doing there, seemingly making obeisance to… A blue pyramid-like object! The key focus of this book is on the most recent java features including lambda functions, streams, functional programming paradigm, reactive programming techniques, and much more. Message flow, Chapter 11. This next title is an excellent, no frills introduction to building reactive web applications with Play and Akka. Are we good now with the propriety, properness, and, in general, with all things proper, at least those having to do with the relevance of micro-services to reactive programming?

It is demanding. Chapter 4. I heartily agree with this assessment. So if you are a fellow programmer who has bludgeoned their head through repeated, and dare I say, valiant attempts at grokking category theory, then you owe it to yourself to check out this splendid book. Divide and conquerChapter 7. I hasten to add that Functional and Reactive Domain Modeling will challenge you: It’s an incredibly idea-dense volume—yes, in an eminently mathematical and SNR kind of way—reminding me in many ways of the seminal GoF book that started quite the revolution in our industry when it was published in 1995. The contents of this book are overwhelming—in a good way!—as there is so much that is of such high quality: the caliber of writing, the sparkling-clear illustrations, and the stellar code snippets. So, there is not only success but success in the face of extreme nonfunctional requirements. Effective Java 3rd Edition. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. To take just example–this one from their thoughtful coverage of Domain-Driven Design aka DDD–you will find starter material (“What is domain-driven design?”), the larger context of an anti-patterns that plagues our industry (“The Big Ball of Mud”), some hard-core DDD wisdom (specifically on the topics of “Bounded context”, “Ubiquitous language”, “Entities”, “Aggregates”, and a handful more), and even some advanced DDD topics (for example the “Anticorruption layer”). This book is packed with lesson that could only have been gleaned by those who have been there and done that. If you’re new to our digs, please know that I’m opinionated—never in a rude way, at least I hope not, because that’s just not my style!—so yes, I don’t mince my words: Hence the Steve Jobs quote atop (Longtime readers, of course, will need no such subtle terms of endearment to soothe their jangled nerves! FuturesChapter 6. What the author has accomplished with this stellar book is not for the faint of heart: It takes three strands—functional programming, reactive programming, and domain modeling—and manages to weave them into a tapestry of awesome.
