Reactive Programming: A New Asynchronous Database Access API
Reactive Programming: A New Asynchronous Database Access API Reactive Applications require non-blocking database access. The existing JDBC API leads to blocked threads, threads scheduling, and contention. For high throughput and large-scale deployment, the Java community needs a standard asynchronous API for database access where user threads never block. This session presents an advance look at a possible new Java standard for accessing SQL databases. This new API is completely non-blocking. It is not intended to be an extension to, or a replacement for, JDBC but, rather, an entirely separate API that provides completely non-blocking access to the same databases as JDBC. This session examines the API, its execution model, code samples, a demo of a prototype, and the next steps. Speakers: 1. Douglas Surber: JDBC Architect, Oracle JDBC development; lead of the Async Db Access API (ADBA) o He is Oracle rep at the JDBC Expert Group; has presented a JavaOne, and other Java events 2. Kuassi Mensah: Director of Product Management, Oracle Database Java products development o Frequent speaker: JavaOne, Oracle Open World, Data Summit, Node Summit, Oracle User groups (UKOUG, DOAG,OUGN, BGOUG, OUGF, GUOB, ArOUG, ORAMEX, Sangam, OTNYathra, China, Thailand, etc), Author:­. @kmensah,­,­

    What we're about

    At the San Francisco JUG you get to meet other local Java professionals and talk about code, architecture, innovation, opportunities, and share ideas about real-world problems.

    Our meetings are technically focused and often include expert speakers on Java-related topics.

    We welcome both beginners and gurus, both developers and managers, both geeks and professionals.

    We typically meet on the 2nd Tuesday of each month and our meetings are FREE and OPEN to the public.
