Data I/O 2013 – Vert.X – Async Data from Cluster to Browser – Lance Ball

Tags: ,

From the abstract: “Vert.x is an asynchronous, event-driven application platform similar in style to Node.js, except it runs on the JVM. It supports several JVM languages, including Javascript, and uses a multi-reactor event loop to handle a very high number of concurrent connections. Clustering is built-in and remarkably easy to use, and the Vert.x event bus makes passing messages between components or applications simple. With JSON as the native message format, and a SockJS client that speaks directly to the bus, pushing event-based messages to the browser has never been easier.”
