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 5: Enhancing Cloud-Native Applications

In the previous chapter, Chapter 4, Developing Cloud-Native Applications, we learned how to build cloud-native applications. However, building cloud-native applications is just the start. The next step is to enhance the applications, by making them configurable, resilient, documentable, and secure. In this chapter, you will learn how to configure your cloud-native applications using MicroProfile Config, make your applications resilient using MicroProfile Fault Tolerance, document their APIs using MicroProfile OpenAPI, and finally, secure your applications using MicroProfile JWT. After this chapter, you should be able to use these technologies to improve the quality of your cloud-native applications. To fully comprehend this chapter, you will need some basic knowledge of Java, Maven, and Gradle.

We will cover the following topics:

  • Configuring cloud-native applications using MicroProfile Config
  • Making cloud-native applications...
