Vortrag: Infinitely scalable microservices with Loom and Helidon
Project Loom introduces VirtualThreads to OpenJDK. VirtualThreads are so lightweight that they are practically an unbounded resource. You can use as many as you like! Blocking I/O? No problem. Forget reactive and return to those simpler, joyful times of synchronous programing. In this talk you will learn about VirtualThreads and see our experimental result with Helidon, an open source microservices framework, to build a highly scalable microservice.
(Project Loom is to intended to explore, incubate and deliver Java VM features and APIs built on top of them for the purpose of supporting easy-to-use, high-throughput lightweight concurrency and new programming models on the Java platform. - https://wiki.openjdk.java.net/display/loom/Main)
