This repository contains backend and frontend projects that make use of Reactive Web patterns, as explained in the mini book Full Reactive Stack with Spring Boot 2, WebFlux, MongoDB and Angular and also in the Full Reactive Stack series of posts.

Spring Boot Reactive Web
This is a Spring Boot 2.0 application that retrieves data using Spring Reactive Web (WebFlux), instead of using the standard synchronous MVC framework. It connects to a MongoDB database in a reactive way too.
Check this blog post for the complete description of the implementation.
This simple Angular application consumes the controller on the backend side using a reactive approach, Server-Sent Events, so data is loaded on screen as soon as it's available.
This blog post has the full instructions on how it has been implemented.
The docker folder contains a
docker-compose file that runs the Mongo database, the backend application
and the Angular application. It also contains a simplified version,
runs only the MongoDB instance, in case you want to run the applications without docker.
Running the applications with Docker
Make sure to build the applications first:
- For the Angular application, run first
npm installand then
npm run ng buildin the
angular-reactivefolder. It generates a
- For the Spring Boot application, execute
mvnw clean packagein the
spring-boot-reactive-webfolder. That command generates the jar file in the
Then you need to run
docker-compose up from the
docker folder. After the services are executed, you
can navigate to
localhost:8900 to see the applications running. If you're running Docker in a different
machine (like when using a VM in Windows), replace
localhost for the Docker machine IP.
