A new class of applications becoming more and more prevalent in both consumer and enterprise-facing environments, reactive applications are fundamentally different to the traditional web-based or mobile applications seen today and are distinguished by having one or more of the following defining traits.
Extending beyond our communities, Lightbend (formerly Typesafe) spearheaded the reactive manifesto to define a common vocabulary-both in terms of business values and technical concepts-to make it easier for developers, users, businesses, and vendors to discuss, collaborate, and innovate around this new class of applications.
