Cloud-Native Applications in Java

Overview of this book

Businesses today are evolving so rapidly that they are resorting to the elasticity of the cloud to provide a platform to build and deploy their highly scalable applications. This means developers now are faced with the challenge of building build applications that are native to the cloud. For this, they need to be aware of the environment, tools, and resources they’re coding against. If you’re a Java developer who wants to build secure, resilient, robust, and scalable applications that are targeted for cloud-based deployment, this is the book for you. It will be your one stop guide to building cloud-native applications in Java Spring that are hosted in On-prem or cloud providers - AWS and Azure The book begins by explaining the driving factors for cloud adoption and shows you how cloud deployment is different from regular application deployment on a standard data centre. You will learn about design patterns specific to applications running in the cloud and find out how you can build a microservice in Java Spring using REST APIs You will then take a deep dive into the lifecycle of building, testing, and deploying applications with maximum automation to reduce the deployment cycle time. Gradually, you will move on to configuring the AWS and Azure platforms and working with their APIs to deploy your application. Finally, you’ll take a look at API design concerns and their best practices. You’ll also learn how to migrate an existing monolithic application into distributed cloud native applications. By the end, you will understand how to build and monitor a scalable, resilient, and robust cloud native application that is always available and fault tolerant.

This brings us to the end of digital transformation. We saw how we need to evaluate our application portfolio for transformation opportunities. We saw the reasons why monolithic applications are becoming a hindrance to achieving our business goals.

Once a transformation opportunity is identified, we can take an existing monolithic application and move to a distributed application model. We saw various steps that need to be taken across people, process, and technology levels.

This also brings an end to the overall journey for building cloud-native applications in Java. We saw the various tools/technologies to build new age microservice-based applications, how to build them, how to take these applications to production, how to monitor them, and how we adopt these applications for cloud providers such as AWS and Azure. We also saw some of the best practices in building API-based platforms, and how to take an existing monolithic application and transform it into a distributed microservice...
