An example of accessing a database using R2DBC in a Netifi RSocket application.

What is Netifi?

Netifi is a platform for building cloud-native applications with the power of RSocket.

Netifi provides service discovery, load-balancing, streaming, and back-pressure without deploying a whole host of infrastructure components and without polluting your code with circuit breakers and client-side load-balancing.

Check out for more information.

Project Structure

This example contains the following projects / directories:

  • client - Client application that calls the product-service to retrieve product information.
  • product-service-idl - Defines the API contract exposed by the product-service.
  • product-service - Service that retrieves product information from the database.
  • docker - Docker Compose configuration for running the example.

Building the Example

Run the following command to build the example:

./gradlew clean buildImage

Running the Example

Follow the steps below to run the example application:

  1. Run the following commands to start a Netifi Broker, the product service and its database:

     cd docker
     docker-compose up
  2. In a new terminal, run the following command to start a client instance and retrieve product information for product 3:

     docker run -e SPRING_PROFILES_ACTIVE='localdocker' netifi-r2dbc-example/client 3

    If successful, you will see the following in the console:

     productId: 3
