Vert.x is a framework for the next generation of asynchronous, scalable, concurrent applications, which aims to provide an alternative to Node.js for the JVM.
Vert.x is a server framework which is rapidly arising. Each server framework claims its strong points are high performance with a variety of protocols supported. Vert.x takes a step forward from that. Vert.x considers the environment of establishing and operating the server network environment.

I can only speak from the one real world vert.x project (version 1.3 I think) developed by someone else that I was left to maintain and improve:
The memory usage was ridiculous, the cpu usage was high, it crashed at least once a week, and was difficult to work on.

I replaced it with a nodejs app, with the same functionality. It could handle far more connections with less memory, cpu and did not crash (other than bugs).

Put it down to the old version of vert.x or the fact that the nodejs model is much easier to understand.....

Scaling up nodejs beyond a single node is harder though. (there's an npm module for that though now I'm sure)

JavaScript, and its cousin Node.js, maybe the best candidate for microservice, API first architecture in appropriate word.

Where do developers live? How much do developers earn? Vim or Emacs? Tabs or spaces? This is the most comprehensive software developer survey on earth.
