Practical Cloud-Native Java Development with MicroProfile

By: Emily Jiang, Andrew McCright, John Alcorn, David Chan, Alasdair Nottingham

Overview of this book

In this cloud-native era, most applications are deployed in a cloud environment that is public, private, or a combination of both. To ensure that your application performs well in the cloud, you need to build an application that is cloud native. MicroProfile is one of the most popular frameworks for building cloud-native applications, and fits well with Kubernetes. As an open standard technology, MicroProfile helps improve application portability across all of MicroProfile's implementations. Practical Cloud-Native Java Development with MicroProfile is a comprehensive guide that helps you explore the advanced features and use cases of a variety of Jakarta and MicroProfile specifications. You'll start by learning how to develop a real-world stock trader application, and then move on to enhancing the application and adding day-2 operation considerations. You'll gradually advance to packaging and deploying the application. The book demonstrates the complete process of development through to deployment and concludes by showing you how to monitor the application's performance in the cloud. By the end of this book, you will master MicroProfile's latest features and be able to build fast and efficient cloud-native applications.

Chapter 12: MicroProfile LRA and the Future of MicroProfile

You have reached the final chapter of this book. Congratulations on making it this far! In this final chapter, we will briefly discuss the newly released MicroProfile Long-Running Action (LRA) and then look at the future of MicroProfile.

While writing this book, MicroProfile LRA 1.0 was released to address the need for microservice transactions. A traditional transaction, as we all must know, is a movement of money, such as an online payment or a withdrawal of money from a bank. In a traditional application, you normally use technologies such as the two-phase commit or eXtended Architecture (XA) protocol to manage transactions. However, these technologies do not suit cloud-native application transactions. In this chapter, we will explore how MicroProfile addresses the need to manage cloud-native transactions. We also will have a look at the transaction architecture for cloud-native applications. After that, we will take...
