Hi Adam Davis,

- I see that the book is 156 pages only and you cover 3 main Stream API. What do you show from each one of them?

- Can we find a back-to-back comparison of how to implement reactive programming in each one of the API?

- Which one of the API you find more easy to use, more fun to use and more complete in terms of the functionalities they provide? What about extensions to these API?

Thank you for the knowledge you are sharing.
Congratulations on your new book!

The book shows how to do basic operations in all three such as filter, map, flatMap and reduce. It also shows what Test support they have. Also, the book covers what is special and different about each framework, how to handle errors, etc.

Also, for each one the book shows implementing how to an application using that framework and its integration with another framework/library. RxJava in Android, Reactor with Spring Boot, and Akka Streams with Akka http.

I find they are all very good. I find Reactor probably the easiest to use. I like the integration Spring WebFlux has with Reactor, however I think you can use RxJava as well with it: https://dzone.com/articles/reactive-rest-api-using-spring-boot-and-rxjava-1

That seems a very interesting way to learn the API, by contrasting each one of them.

Thanks you for your valuable insights!
