vert.x

What is vert.x?

Vert.x is the framework for the next generation of asynchronous, effortlessly scalable, concurrent applications.

Vert.x is a framework which takes inspiration from event driven frameworks like node.js, combines it with a distributed event bus and sticks it all on the JVM - a runtime with real concurrency and unrivalled performance. Vert.x then exposes the API in Ruby and Java too.

Some of the key highlights include:

  • Polyglot. Write your application components in JavaScript, Java or Ruby. It's up to you. Or mix and match several programming languages in a single application. (Groovy, Scala and Clojure support is scheduled too).

  • No more worrying about concurrency. Vert.x allows you to write all your code as single threaded, freeing you from the hassle of multi-threaded programming. Race conditions and locks are a thing of the past.

  • Vert.x has a super simple, asynchronous programming model for writing truly scalable non-blocking applications.

  • Vert.x includes a distributed event bus that spans the client and server side so your applications components can communicate incredibly easily. The event bus even penetrates into in-browser JavaScript allowing you to create effortless so-called real-time web applications.

  • Vert.x provides real power and simplicity, without being simplistic. No more boilerplate or sprawling xml configuration files.

If you don't want the whole vert.x platform, vert.x can also be used embedded directly in your Java applications
