Stream processing is a hot topic today and it’s easy to get lost among all the possibilities. In this live coding session we will explore the Reactive Streams approach used by the Akka Streams project.
On an almost real-life example we’re going to walk through both the basics and some more advanced usages of the library.
And if you thought Akka Streams was a Scala library, watch the video to learn the nice Java API and see how wrong you were.
The source code is available at: https://github.com/rucek/akka-streams-in-practice-java8.
I also encourage you to have a look at my Introduction to Reactive Streams for Java Developers blogpost, which offers a comprehensive introduction to using Akka Streams in Java, together with the basics of Akka HTTP and some examples of using Alpakka.
