Hands-On Cloud Development with WildFly

By: Tomasz Adamski

Overview of this book

The book starts by introducing you to WildFly Swarm—a tool that allows you to create runnable microservices from Java EE components. You’ll learn the basics of Swarm operation—creating microservices containing only the parts of enterprise runtime needed in a specific case. Later, you’ll learn how to configure and test those services. In order to deploy our services in the cloud, we’ll use OpenShift. You’ll get to know basic information on its architecture, features, and relationship to Docker and Kubernetes. Later, you’ll learn how to deploy and configure your services to run in the OpenShift cloud. In the last part of the book, you’ll see how to make your application production-ready. You’ll find out how to configure continuous integration for your services using Jenkins, make your application resistant to network failures using Hystrix, and how to secure them using Keycloak. By the end of the book, you’ll have a functional example application and will have practical knowledge of Java EE cloud development that can be used as a reference in your other projects.

This chapter was intended to give you an overview of what you can expect from reading this book.

We have recalled basic information about Java EE and the traditional way in which it was used to develop enterprise application. Later, we introduced modern trends in software development: cloud computing and microservices architecture.

Then, we introduced the pet store—the sample application that we are going to develop throughout the book.

Finally, we introduced all the technologies and tools used throughout the book, such as WildFly Swarm, OpenShift, Hystrix, Jenkins, and Keycloak.
