D10021 - Non-Blocking, Mode 3 One Way Mode

From this chapter of the tutorials, we started to introduce EventBus enabled mode, the one way mode just like Ping Mode, but enable the event bus instead of agent only. The data will be send to event bus and it’s better to use this mode to do some async jobs or long time jobs.

1. Introduction

There are both sender and consumer in current mode:

Request -> Agent -> @Address ( Sender ) -> 
    EventBus -> 
        @Address ( Consumer ) -> Worker -> Response ( true / false )

Demo projects:

2. Source Code

2.1. Sender

package up.god.micro.request;

import io.vertx.core.json.JsonObject;
import io.vertx.up.annotations.Address;
import io.vertx.up.annotations.EndPoint;


public class OneWayActor {

    public String process(
            final JsonObject data
    ) {
        return data.encode();

2.2. Consumer

package up.god.micro.request;

import io.vertx.up.annotations.Address;
import io.vertx.up.annotations.Queue;
import io.vertx.up.commune.Envelop;

public class OneWayWorker {

    public void process(final Envelop envelop) {
        final String item =;

Programming Rules

  1. The worker class must be annotated with io.vertx.up.annotations.Queue.
  2. The worker method signature must be void xxx(Envelop), in this mode this method signature is fixed.
  3. You must use io.vertx.up.annotations.Address annotation to set address of string type in Sender/Consumer both.
  4. Address value should be the same shared in Sender/Consumer.

3. Console

[ ZERO ] ( 1 Event ) The endpoint up.god.micro.request.OneWayActor scanned 1 events of Event, \
    will be mounted to routing system.
[ ZERO ] ( 2 Queue ) The Zero system has found 2 components of @Queue.
[ ZERO ] Vert.x zero has found 2 incoming address from the system. Incoming address list as below: 
[ ZERO ]        Addr : ZERO://ONE-WAY
[ ZERO ] ( 1 Receipt ) The queue up.god.micro.request.OneWayWorker scanned 1 records of Receipt, \
    will be mounted to event bus.
[ ZERO ] ( Uri Register ) "/api/request/one-way" has been deployed by ZeroHttpAgent, Options = Route...

4. Testing

URL : http://localhost:6083/api/request/one-way

Method : POST

Request :


Response :

    "data": true

You could see output in console as following:



This mode just like Ping mode, the data in response is true/false only, the little difference between Ping Mode and current mode is that current mode enabled event bus and the task has been finished by agent/worker threads both and they are asynchronous, but Ping mode’s works have been finished by single thread of agent.
