    Vert.x - Red Hat, Inc.

    Vert.x is an open source project that aims to provide an alternative to Node.js for the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). It is a modular, multi-language (polyglot), general-purpose platform that can be used for many types of applications. Developers leverage the best language that allows them to most rapidly address their use case and business need. This enables greater overall team productivity and agility. No matter what language is chosen, all components are first class citizens and easily interoperable via the Vert.x event bus. A number of JVM-compatible programming languages are currently supported, including Java, JavaScript, Groovy, Ruby, Python, and more. Vert.x is highly scalable because of the combination of asynchronous/event-driven programming, its unique event-bus architecture and the JVM.
