Learning Ratpack : Simple, Lean, and Powerful Web Applications (Paperback) (Dan Woods)
about this item
Build fast, highly scalable, non-blocking web applications with the lightweight JVM framework Ratpack. With this practical book, web developers with a JVM background will learn how asynchronous, non-blocking web applications differ from more traditional request-response systems—and how you can reap the benefits of complex non-blocking through an API that makes the effort easy to understand and adopt.
You’ll also learn how to build, package, and distribute a Ratpack microservice into a lightweight container across a variety of cloud solutions. Understand why Netflix, Ticketmaster and a host of other companies are already using the framework to design microservices and non-blocking applications.
