.NET Core vs Vert.x: What are the differences?

.NET Core: An Open Source, General-Purpose Development Platform Maintained by Microsoft and the .NET Community. Cross-platform (supporting Windows, macOS, and Linux) and can be used to build device, cloud, and IoT applications; Vert.x: A tool-kit for building reactive applications on the JVM. It is event driven and non blocking application framework. This means your app can handle a lot of concurrency using a small number of kernel threads. It lets your app scale with minimal hardware.

.NET Core and Vert.x can be categorized as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.

.NET Core is an open source tool with 11.2K GitHub stars and 2.41K GitHub forks. Here's a link to .NET Core's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, .NET Core has a broader approval, being mentioned in 54 company stacks & 71 developers stacks; compared to Vert.x, which is listed in 20 company stacks and 5 developer stacks.

Decisions about .NET Core and Vert.x

I was researching multiple high performance, concurent//parallel languages for the needs of authentication and authorization server, to be built on microservice architecture and Linux OS. Node.js with its asynchronous behavior and event loop suits the case best. Python Django & Flash turns to be slower and .NET Core & Framework wasn't the best choice for the Linux environment at the time (summer 2018).

I also tested Go lang and Rust, although they didn't meet the quick prototyping criteria as both languages are young and lacking libraries or battle-tested ORM.

There has been a lot of buzz around having PostgreSQL for ASP.NET Core 3.1 web apps. But Configuring Identity Server 4 with PostgreSQL is a real challenge. I've made a simple video to configure the ASP.NET Core 3.1 based Web application that uses AngualrJS as front end with Single Page App capabilities with Identity Server 4 talking to the PostgreSQL database. Check out this Video tutorial on how to do that in detail http://bit.ly/2EkotL5 You can access the entire code here on github http://bit.ly/35okpFj

    ASP.NET Core
    A free and open-source web framework, and higher performance than ASP.NET, developed by Microsoft and the community. It is a modular framework that runs on both the full .NET Framework, on Windows, and the cross-platform .NET Core.
    Java
    Java is a programming language and computing platform first released by Sun Microsystems in 1995. There are lots of applications and websites that will not work unless you have Java installed, and more are created every day. Java is fast, secure, and reliable. From laptops to datacenters, game consoles to scientific supercomputers, cell phones to the Internet, Java is everywhere!
    Mono
    It is a software platform designed to allow developers to easily create cross platform applications part of the .NET Foundation. It is an open source implementation of Microsoft's .NET Framework based on the ECMA standards for C# and the Common Language Runtime.
    Node.js
    Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.
