[09:58:29] * ChanServ sets mode: +o purplefox [10:44:04] <GuruMonk> Is Vertx an alternative to node.js? [10:47:23] <Ashe`> it can do the same things [10:50:51] <GuruMonk> OK. Then why it is not as popular as node.js? What are things things vertx currently lacking [10:53:00] <Ashe`> well, it's younger [10:53:04] <Ashe`> which means it has less libraries [10:53:27] <Ashe`> and afaik there's no npm equivalent [10:53:37] <Ashe`> but I don't think they really have the same purpose [10:53:49] <Ashe`> node.js is mostly a generic javascript-outside-the-browser [14:42:33] * ChanServ sets mode: +o purplefox

[17:06:39] <AlexLehm> purplefox: if you have time, could you please take a look what is else required to merge the fix for this issue https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=480001, I am not quite sure what I am missing there

[22:35:28] <AlexLehm> btw, the correct handling of the timerId is for example in this code: https://github.com/eclipse/vert.x/blob/58eebfcc122a8dd1194ce662bd7a438c4c3c91af/src/main/java/io/vertx/core/eventbus/impl/clustered/ConnectionHolder.java#L37
