Springing into Real-Time: Crafting a Lightstreamer Remote Adapter with Spring Boot

Spring Boot is an ideal framework for building stand-alone applications that implement remote adapters for Lightstreamer. 
There are several compelling reasons for choosing Spring Boot in this context:

1. Simplicity and Speed: Spring Boot simplifies the development process by providing a wide range of pre-configured templates, which significantly speeds up application setup and deployment. This is crucial when implementing adapters for real-time data streaming services like Lightstreamer.

Virtual Airport Demo: Connecting Kafka to Lightstreamer

This blog post continues the series of examples through which we want to show various technologies that can be used as a data source to power a Lightstreamer Data Adapter and, in turn, dispatch the data to multiple clients connected to the Lightstreamer server all around the internet.

We have already published a post where we dealt with the integration with DynamoDB: "Virtual Airport Demo: Connecting DynamoDB to Lightstreamer."

In this post, we will show a basic integration with Apache Kafka.

Virtual Airport Demo: Connecting DynamoDB to Lightstreamer

We're excited to announce the release of our newest demo. And no, this time it's not a stock-list demo 😉

We switched things up a bit, and the new demo simulates a very simple departures board with a few rows showing real-time flight information to passengers of a hypothetical airport. The data are simulated in the back-end and retrieved from an Amazon DynamoDB data source. In short, we showcase our cool "virtual airport" where you can pretend to take a flight without ever leaving your home!

The live demo is available at
