Asynchronous, Temporal REST With Vert.x, Keycloak and Kotlin Coroutines

How we built an asynchronous, RESTful API for a log-structured, temporal, versioned NoSQL document store — Sirix.io (open source and free)

Powerful XQuery API for JSON and XML

Vert.x, Kotlin/Coroutines and Keycloak

Things to consider when building the Server

API design by example

$server$serverPath?query=let%20%24nodeKey%20%3A%3D%20sdb%3Anodekey(.%3D%3Efoo%5B%5B2%5D%5D)%0Areturn%20%7B%22nodeKey%22%3A%20%24nodeKey%7D

Note, that we also have sophisticated diffing capabilities, but lacking a proper serialization format for JSON right now. Regarding XML we currently emit XQuery Update Statements. Furthermore we want to re-enable a dated GUI based on (still ;-)) novel visualization approaches for comparing tree structures: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9CXXBkl5vI&t=26s

I'm working on a persistent, durable document store called SirixDB written in Java in my spare time. It's especially well suited for novel byte-addressable NVM.
