The question is whether we actually want the ability to support other reactive implementations, or whether we decide to stick with CompletableStage? The rx intermediate method makes the API more complex for anybody. On the other hand, Java 10 possibly will provide a "real" reactive API for everyone, and we cannot natively support it, but enforce people to use rx() still, which is tedious. I cannot remember that the EG actually agreed upon a final answer of this dilemma.

So what's going to happen next? We are currently working in PoC implementation of Reactive client API which is currently in the JAX-RS source repository master branch - it is almost ready for review. We identified small improvement needed there and I'm going to take care of that, finish the PoC implementation and document the API on the wiki. Once this is done, I'll send a request for review to this mailing list.


 Just a quick reminder that the crux of the RX work is the addition of new rx() methods to Invocation, with default support for CompletionStage and an extension point to plug in other reactive implementations via the RxInvoker type [1].
