Reactive Programming: A New Asynchronous Database Access API
Agenda: 6:00-7:00: Socializing (Thanks Oracle for food and drinks!) 7:00-7:10: Announcements 7:10-8:30: A New Asynchronous Database Access API 8:30-8:45: Q&A Abstract: 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: Douglas Surber: JDBC Architect, Oracle JDBC development; lead of the Async Db Access API (ADBA). He is Oracle rep at the JDBC Expert Group; has presented at JavaOne, and other Java events. 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

    This group was started in April of 2003. We switched from to at the beginning of 2009. This Java User Group (JUG) is for anyone interested in learning more about JEE web application development. We meet at Google in Mountain View, California, on the third Wednesday of the month. All levels of JEE web application development experience are welcome. Our meetings are always free to attend.
