JavaScript Cloud Native Development Cookbook

By: John Gilbert

Overview of this book

Cloud-native development is a modern approach to building and running applications that leverages the merits of the cloud computing model. With cloud-native development, teams can deliver faster and in a more lean and agile manner as compared to traditional approaches. This recipe-based guide provides quick solutions for your cloud-native applications. Beginning with a brief introduction, JavaScript Cloud-Native Development Cookbook guides you in building and deploying serverless, event-driven, cloud-native microservices on AWS with Node.js. You'll then move on to the fundamental patterns of developing autonomous cloud-native services and understand the tools and techniques involved in creating globally scalable, highly available, and resilient cloud-native applications. The book also covers multi-regional deployments and leveraging the edge of the cloud to maximize responsiveness, resilience, and elasticity. In the latter chapters you'll explore techniques for building fully automated, continuous deployment pipelines and gain insights into polyglot cloud-native development on popular cloud platforms such as Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). By the end of the book, you'll be able to apply these skills to build powerful cloud-native solutions.

Assembling transitive end-to-end tests

Traditional end-to-end testing is labor-intensive and expensive. As a result, traditional batch sizes are large and end-to-end testing is performed infrequently or skipped altogether. This is the exact opposite of our objective with continuous deployment. We want small batch sizes and we want full testing on every deployment, multiple times per day, which is when we typically hear cries of heresy. This recipe demonstrates how this can be achieved with the tools and techniques already covered in this chapter.
