This refreshed edition accounts for important technology changes that have occurred in the past three years.
Youâll learn the frameworkâs core functionality, as well as how to extend applications with advanced web techniques such as database migration and web service communication. The first part of each chapter provides you with reference and background for the topic in question, while the second part guides you though a hands-on implementation of the topic.
If you have Python experience, this book shows you how to take advantage of the creative freedom Flask provides.
Reactive Application Development is a hands-on guide that teaches you how to build reliable enterprise applications using reactive design patterns.
Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.
Foreword by Jonas BonÃ©r, Creator of Akka
About the Technology
Mission-critical applications have to respond instantly to changes in load, recover gracefully from failure, and satisfy exacting requirements for performance, cost, and reliability. That's no small task! Reactive designs make it easier to meet these demands through modular, message-driven architecture, innovative tooling, and cloud-based infrastructure.
About the Book
Reactive Application Development teaches you how to build reliable enterprise applications using reactive design patterns. This hands-on guide begins by exposing you to the reactive mental model, along with a survey of core technologies like the Akka actors framework. Then, you'll build a proof-of-concept system in Scala, and learn to use patterns like CQRS and Event Sourcing. You'll master the principles of reactive design as you implement elasticity and resilience, integrate with traditional architectures, and learn powerful testing techniques.
About the Reader
Written for Java or Scala programmers familiar with distributed application designs.
About the Author
Duncan DeVore, Sean Walsh, and Brian Hanafee are seasoned architects with experience building and deploying reactive systems in production.
Table of Contents
The practice of enterprise application development has benefited from the emergence of many new enabling technologies. Multi-tiered object-oriented platforms, such as Java and .NET, have become commonplace. These new tools and technologies are capable of building powerful applications, but they are not easily implemented. Common failures in enterprise applications often occur because their developers do not understand the architectural lessons that experienced object developers have learned.
Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture is written in direct response to the stiff challenges that face enterprise application developers. The author, noted object-oriented designer Martin Fowler, noticed that despite changes in technology--from Smalltalk to CORBA to Java to .NET--the same basic design ideas can be adapted and applied to solve common problems. With the help of an expert group of contributors, Martin distills over forty recurring solutions into patterns. The result is an indispensable handbook of solutions that are applicable to any enterprise application platform.
This book is actually two books in one. The first section is a short tutorial on developing enterprise applications, which you can read from start to finish to understand the scope of the book's lessons. The next section, the bulk of the book, is a detailed reference to the patterns themselves. Each pattern provides usage and implementation information, as well as detailed code examples in Java or C#. The entire book is also richly illustrated with UML diagrams to further explain the concepts.
Armed with this book, you will have the knowledge necessary to make important architectural decisions about building an enterprise application and the proven patterns for use when building them.
The topics covered include
Â·Â Dividing an enterprise application into layers
Â·Â The major approaches to organizing business logic
Â·Â An in-depth treatment of mapping between objects and relational databases
Â·Â Using Model-View-Controller to organize a Web presentation
Â·Â Handling concurrency for data that spans multiple transactions
Â·Â Designing distributed object interfaces

Harness the power of React Native to build 4 real-world apps
React Native helps web and mobile developers to build cross-platform apps that perform at the same level as any other natively developed app. The range of apps that can be built using this library is huge. From e-commerce to games, React Native is a good fit for any mobile project due to its flexibility and extendable nature.
This project-based book consists of four standalone projects. Each project will help you gain a sound understanding of the framework and build mobile apps with native user experience. Starting with a simple standalone car booking app, you will progressively move on to building advanced apps by adding connectivity with external APIs, using native features, such as the camera or microphone, in the mobile device, integrating with state management libraries such as Redux or MobX, or leveraging React Native's performance by building a full-featured game.
This book is ideal for developers who want to build amazing cross-platform apps with React Native.
This book is embedded with useful assessments that will help you revise the concepts you have learned in this book. This book is repurposed for this specific learning experience from the content of Packt's React Native Blueprints by Emilio Rodriguez Martinez.
This book is for developers who want to build amazing cross-platform apps with React Native.
