Distributed applications demand reliable, high-performance messaging. The Apache Pulsar server-to-server messaging system provides a secure, stable platform without the need for a stream processing engine like Spark. Contributed by Yahoo to the Apache Foundation, Pulsar is mature and battle-tested, handling millions of messages per second for over three years at Yahoo. Apache Pulsar in Action is a comprehensive and practical guide to building high-traffic applications with Pulsar, delivering extreme levels of speed and durability.

about the technology

Pulsar is a streaming messaging system designed for high performance server-to-server messaging. Built and tested under intense conditions at Yahoo, Pulsar has been proven in production and can handle millions of messages per second. Now free and open-source, Pulsar’s unique architecture helps solve some of the challenges of modern development. Pulsar avoids latency in streaming data transmission, making it a powerful tool for IoT Edge analytics. Its unified messaging model improves the performance of microservices architecture, and its tiered storage capabilities allow for larger volumes of data to be handled without fear of data loss. Pulsar’s flexible API interface works with Java, C++, Python, and Go, making it easy to incorporate Pulsar into your stack.

about the book

Apache Pulsar in Action is a hands-on guide to building scalable streaming messaging systems for distributed applications and microservices systems. You’ll start with Pulsar’s fundamentals, each illustrated by real-world examples, as you get to grips with Pulsar’s unique architecture. Pulsar contributor David Kjerrumgaard teaches the skills you need to deploy a Pulsar server, ingest data from third-party systems, and deploy lightweight computing logic with simple functions. You’ll learn to employ Pulsar’s seamless scalability through relatable case studies, including an IOT analytics application that can be deployed within a resource constrained environment and a microservices application based on Pulsar functions. At the end of this practical book, you’ll be ready to fully take advantage of Pulsar to create high-traffic message-driven applications.
