The old world of monolithic Java EE servers had the luxury of assuming consistent state, due to a single database being able to enforce that with ACID transactions. In the cloud native Jakarta EE world, these assumptions no longer hold, and new architectural models are needed to deal with state and ensuring consistency. At the core of these models is streaming, which allows state to be reliably propagated throughout a cloud native system, allowing eventual consistency to be assumed. MicroProfile Reactive Streams is a new spec that has been created to manipulate and handle these streams. Coupled with upcoming specs for messaging and modifications to existing Jakarta EE specs for Reactive Streams, MicroProfile Reactive Streams offers Jakarta EE users an opportunity to safely move into the new world of cloud native computing.
