On the way to Reactive Relational Database Connectivity 1.0

 /  EN /

Reactive Relational Database Connectivity (R2DBC) is a project of the Reactive Foundation that specifies how applications can integrate with databases using reactive programming on the JVM. The initiative was started a couple of years ago in response to a missing Java standard while facing persistence requirements from reactive applications. The specification has recently released version 0.9 and the majority of R2DBC drivers have upgraded already.

Come to this talk to get a brief overview of the R2DBC standard, what you can do today with it. We will discuss the future of R2DBC and how it fits into a modern JVM landscape. You will learn about the ideal use cases, the availability of drivers, and client libraries.
