Take 60 minutes to understand the Power of the Actor Model with "Designing Reactive Systems: The Role Of Actors In Distributed Architecture". Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.

Adam asked me about that at NetBeans Day in Munich. One part of the JAX-RS Client API isn't fully standardized but still very important looking at today's microservice architectures. I am talking about timeouts here. Adam showed how to set them for Jersey and I just needed to find out how to do the same with Resteasy.

import javax.ws.rs.client.Client;
import org.jboss.resteasy.client.jaxrs.ResteasyClient;
import org.jboss.resteasy.client.jaxrs.ResteasyClientBuilder;

 Client client = new ResteasyClientBuilder()
                .establishConnectionTimeout(100, TimeUnit.SECONDS)
                .socketTimeout(2, TimeUnit.SECONDS)
ResteasyClientBuilder is basically an abstraction for creating Clients which uses Apache Http Client under the covers. That's it.

Learn how the Actor model provides a simple but powerful way to design and implement reactive applications that can distribute work across clusters of cores and servers. Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.
