Introducing the R2DBC async Java connector

  • Rob Hedgpeth, Developer Evangelist, MariaDB

Not too long ago, a reactive variant of the JDBC driver was released, known as Reactive Relational Database Connectivity (R2DBC for short). While R2DBC started as an experiment to enable integration of SQL databases into systems that use reactive programming models, it now specifies a full-fledged service-provider interface that can be used to retrieve data from a target data source.

In this session, we take a look at the new MariaDB R2DBC connector and examine the advantages of fully reactive, non-blocking development with MariaDB. Next, we dive in and get a first-hand look at what it’s like to use the new connector with some live coding!
