In modern applications, especially those interacting with external services, transient failures are common. These failures can often be mitigated by implementing retry mechanisms. In this blog, we’ll explore how to implement retry logic in Spring Boot applications, both for traditional blocking applications and reactive applications using WebFlux.

For traditional application example please read here.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<project xmlns="" xmlns:xsi=""
<relativePath/> <!-- lookup parent from repository -->
