Synchronous but non-OS-thread-blocking verticles

Love scalability?

Hate blocking kernel threads?

Hate callback hell?

Want to squash the pyramid of doom?

Well, now you can have your cake and eat it…​

Vertx-sync allows you to deploy verticles that run using fibers. Fibers are very lightweight threads that can be blocked without blocking a kernel thread.

This enables you to write your verticle code in a familiar synchronous style (i.e. no callbacks or promises or Rx).

As no kernel threads are blocked your application retains the scalability advantages of a non (kernel thread) blocking application.

Please see the in source asciidoc documentation or the main documentation on the web-site for a full description of vertx-sync
