i18n in Java 11, Spring Boot, and JavaScript

What are i18n and l10n? Internationalization (i18n) is the process of making your application capable of rendering its text in multiple languages.

Build a Reactive App with Spring Boot and MongoDB

They’re non-blocking and tend to be more efficient because they’re not tying up processing while waiting for stuff to happen. Reactive systems embrace asynchronous I/O. The concept behind asynchronous I/O is straightforward: alleviate inefficient resource utilization by reclaiming resources that would otherwise be idle as they waited for I/O activity. Asynchronous I/O inverts the normal design of I/O processing: the...
