Java 8 includes features for productivity, ease of use, improved polyglot programming, security and improved performance.

What is RxJava? Reactive Extensions for the JVM. A library for composing asynchronous and event-based programs by using observable sequences for the Java VM.

Java 8 and RxJava can be primarily classified as "Java" tools.

RxJava is an open source tool with 40K GitHub stars and 6.74K GitHub forks. Here's a link to RxJava's open source repository on GitHub.

TimeHop, MDOffice, and Poq are some of the popular companies that use RxJava, whereas Java 8 is used by HubSpot, NOYSI, and Your.MD.

    What are some alternatives to Java 8 and RxJava?
    Scala
    Scala is an acronym for “Scalable Language”. This means that Scala grows with you. You can play with it by typing one-line expressions and observing the results. But you can also rely on it for large mission critical systems, as many companies, including Twitter, LinkedIn, or Intel do. To some, Scala feels like a scripting language. Its syntax is concise and low ceremony; its types get out of the way because the compiler can infer them.
    guava
    The Guava project contains several of Google's core libraries that we rely on in our Java-based projects: collections, caching, primitives support, concurrency libraries, common annotations, string processing, I/O, and so forth.
    Quarkus
    It tailors your application for GraalVM and HotSpot. Amazingly fast boot time, incredibly low RSS memory (not just heap size!) offering near instant scale up and high density memory utilization in container orchestration platforms like Kubernetes. We use a technique we call compile time boot.
    Thymeleaf
    It is a modern server-side Java template engine for both web and standalone environments. It is aimed at creating elegant web code while adding powerful features and retaining prototyping abilities.
    Lombok
    It is a java library that automatically plugs into your editor and build tools, spicing up your java. Never write another getter or equals method again, with one annotation your class has a fully featured builder, Automate your logging variables, and much more.
