Kotlin Reactive Micro Services Example

License: MIT Build Status codecov codebeat badge

IntelliJ code coverage runner gives a 100%, unfortunately I've not managed to get the same results using and JaCoCo


This is an example of doing reactive MicroServices using spring 5 functional web framework and spring boot 2 using Kotlin.

This is a fork of the original java version.

This service provide and API that will get the geo location and the sunrise and sunset times from an address.

Scenario: Get Location
  Given I've an address
  When I call the location service
  Then I should get a geo location
  And I should get the sunrise and sunset times

To implement this example we consume a couple of REST APIs.

This example cover several topics:

  • Functional programing.
  • Reactive types.
  • Router Functions.
  • Static Web-Content.
  • Creation on Reactive Java Services/Components.
  • Error handling in routes and services.
  • Reactive Web Client to consume external REST Services.
  • Organizing your project in manageable packaging.

Includes and in depth look to testing using JUnit5:

  • Unit, Integration and System tests.
  • Mocking, including reactive functions and JSON responses.
  • BDD style assertions.
  • Test tags with maven profiles.

Sample requests

Get from address

$ curl -X GET "http://localhost:8080/api/location/Trafalgar%20Square%2C%20London%2C%20England" -H  "accept: application/json"

Post from JSON

$ curl -X POST "http://localhost:8080/api/location" -H  "accept: application/json" -H  "content-type: application/json" -d "{  \"address\": \"Trafalgar Square, London, England\"}"

Both will produce something like:

  "geographicCoordinates": {
    "latitude": 51.508039,
    "longitude": -0.128069
  "sunriseSunset": {
    "sunrise": "2017-05-21T03:59:08+00:00",
    "sunset": "2017-05-21T19:55:11+00:00"

All date and times are ISO 8601 UTC without summer time adjustment
