Building reactive applications with the Grails 3 event system

GR8Conf EU & Gradle Event

02. June 2016 | -

Grails 3 introduced a brand new event system which is based on Reactor. This new feature allows developers to build reactive applications with Grails 3. In this talk we will cover the event system in Grails 3 in detail and explain how it can be used for asynchronous and decoupled communication between commands, services, and even plugins. In addition to that, I will also explain the characteristics of reactive applications and show in how far the Grails 3 event system will support you in developing such applications
