Thus if you need to block until the value from a

onError event is triggered.
Note that you should avoid this by favoring having reactive code end-to-end, as much as possible. You MUST avoid this at all cost in the middle of other reactive code, as this has the potential to lock your whole reactive pipeline.
Similarly, you can block for the first or last value in a
You can also transform a
Flux to an
