Reactive Extension (Rx) Adaptor for Netty
Java Other
Latest commit be12144 Nov 16, 2016 @NiteshKant NiteshKant `RequestN` reduces with completed subscribers.
#### Problem

Re-calculation of max `requestN` per subscriber did not take into account removed subscribers correctly. This causes the `requestN` value to decrease over time when subscribers are completed.

#### Modification

- Modified `recalculateMaxPerSubscriber` to take old and new subscriber count instead of trying to determine the correct value from the current subscriber queue size.
- `subscribers.remove()` does not happen on unsubscribe but only from the task that recalculates the max `requestN` values. This also coalesces multiple removes into a single task run.

#### Result

Consistent `requestN` values with new subscribes and completions.
