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.

In this chapter, we have learned all of the MicroProfile specifications and discussed how they can help with creating cloud-native applications. We then added various QoS, such as configuration, resilience, security, and monitoring. With this, you will have a basic idea of how to design your cloud-native application with best practices to make it secure, configurable, resilient, intelligent, and monitorable. In the chapters to follow, we will learn these technologies in more depth.

Furthermore, after going through the MicroProfile specifications, we then introduced MicroProfile Starter, a tool to develop cloud-native applications. This tool can be accessed via the web, command line, Visual Studio plugin, or IntelliJ IDEA plugin. You will be able to use these tools to create your cloud-native applications from scratch.

In the next chapter, we will introduce a real-world, cloud-native application that utilizes MicroProfile technologies to solve some common problems, and...
