RSocket is an application protocol providing Reactive Streams semantics over an asynchronous, binary boundary.
It enables the following symmetric interaction models via async message passing over a single connection:
- request/response (stream of 1)
- request/stream (finite/infinite stream of many)
- fire-and-forget (no response)
- channel (bi-directional streams)
It also supports connection resumption to allow resuming long-lived streams across different transport connections. This is particularly useful for mobile<->server communication when network connections drop, switch, and reconnect frequently.
