Vert.x Circuit Breaker
Vert.x Circuit Breaker is an implementation of the Circuit Breaker pattern for Vert.x. More details on this pattern on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circuit_breaker_design_pattern
It keeps track of the number of failures and open the circuit when a threshold is reached. Optionally, a fallback is executed.
Supported failures are:
failures reported by your code
exception thrown by your code
uncompleted futures (timeout)
Operations guarded by a circuit breaker are intended to by non-blocking and asynchronous in order to benefits from the Vert.x execution model.
