Retrofitting Java applications with a reactive data flow pipeline

In this episode of IBM Expert TV – App Transformers, Dana Price, Mary Grygleski, and Fabio Tiriticco share a pattern that they’ve applied that illustrates how to construct a reactive, event-driven data flow pipeline.

Legacy applications are running in production and carrying out important day-to-day missions. Much of the complex business functionality in the legacy system can potentially be “recycled” and retrofitted into a modernized system that leverages the power of a reactive data flow pipeline.

We’ll show a Java POJO Kafka client, Akka Streams, a Kafka data source, and Kafka destinations.
