Efficient web apps with Spring Boot 2

Stéphane Nicoll & Brian Clozel - Pivotal

How can we improve the efficiency of an existing web application? We could completely rewrite it, leverage more concurrency and even reactive features. But is it really worth it if we don’t even measure and track the relevant metrics?

In this talk, Stéphane and Brian will work on an existing Spring Boot MVC application to make it more efficient. They’ll replace RestTemplate with WebClient and Reactor operators to improve efficiency, without the concurrency pitfalls. They’ll use out-of-the-box metrics, add new ones to measure, and keep an eye on capacity gains with dashboards.
