Switch to Vert.X #288

Right now, Wisdom is using a HTTP server based on Netty. Netty is great but rather complicated and very low level. After having discussed with @vietj, I think that switching to Vert.X ( will provide a big benefit:

  • simpler API
  • our code will be less complex
  • benefits from good practices (Vert.X is based on Netty)
  • ...

I worked on a small prototype and found minor issues we should work on:

  1. reusing the Netty cookie management because Vert.X does not provide such facilities
  2. provide a way to deal with input stream (Vert.X does not let pump from input stream)
  3. migrate the current encoding features to Vert.X
