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 2: How Does MicroProfile Fit into Cloud-Native Application Development?

This chapter provides you with an overview of MicroProfile and describes the specifications of MicroProfile in terms of fulfilling the requirements of cloud-native applications. In this chapter, we first look at the history of MicroProfile concerning why it was created and for what purpose, and then we will explore the content of MicroProfile. This will give you a high-level understanding of each MicroProfile specification so that you will understand how MicroProfile fits into cloud-native application development and why you should adopt MicroProfile technologies. Finally, we will look at the MicroProfile code generator, MicroProfile Starter, focusing on how to create cloud-native applications. This is useful because it will help you get started with MicroProfile from scratch.

We will cover the following topics in this chapter:

  • MicroProfile overview
  • MicroProfile specifications
  • MicroProfile...
