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.

Preface

MicroProfile provides a set of APIs to facilitate the building of cloud-native applications with best practices. Once you have learned MicroProfile, you can develop a standard cloud-native application, which can be deployed to many runtimes without worrying about migration.

This book provides a hands-on approach to implementation and associated methodologies that will have you up and running and productive in no time. It comes with an end-to-end application to demonstrate how to build a cloud-native application using MicroProfile 4.1 and then deploy it to the cloud.

By the end of this book, you will be able to understand MicroProfile and use the APIs in your cloud-native application development with confidence.
