reactive programming appears to be offered as some sort of panacea that will solve all of our problems forever.


Of course. Not much of an evangelical if one has a new idea and then says 'but this solves almost nothing so you should almost never use it. And especially not when considering long term maintenance costs.'

become salespersons for a certain cause, they seem to be never content with just mentioning the one game-changing advantage of their product over the competition; they seem to always want to throw as much as possible at the customer,


Also of course. As a salesperson ones income is derived from that. Probably not a good idea for the owner of a McDonald's to tell you that Burger King burgers are cheaper and taste better.

From the link

"Systems built as Reactive Systems are more flexible, loosely-coupled and scalable."<pre>

And with complexity that is significant.  And that is by far the most significant factor is any large scale enterprise.  No technology will fix that.

<pre>"The system responds in a timely manner if at all possible."<pre>

WTF?  What system of any sort does not do that?

<pre>"The system stays responsive in the face of failure."


I doubt that is a given. If the architecture, design and implementation does not specifically do that then there is nothing a specific technology can do to fix that.

"that ensures loose coupling,"<pre>

Which also insures complexity.

Componentizing a system, any system using any methodology, means that the individual component (pick your granularity) is easier to understand but it adds to the complexity of understanding and diagnosing problems that impact the enterprise.

I just wish all of the difficult problems that I have worked on for the last 20 years could have been easily solved by looking at one component.  The problems that were caused by a single component often could be diagnosed and fixed in less than a day.

<pre>"The largest systems in the world rely upon architectures based on these properties"


The largest systems in the world have been built over decades and have been based on many false starts and trial and error solutions to meet the specific business needs (and that is a very big plural) of the companies which hold those systems.

Small start ups cannot start with the assumption that they will need to support 1 billion users in 20 years because right now they are not even sure they have enough money to even run for 3 years. So they need something that works quickly no matter how it might fare in 20 years.
