Mastering Spring Cloud

By: Piotr Mińkowski

Overview of this book

Developing, deploying, and operating cloud applications should be as easy as local applications. This should be the governing principle behind any cloud platform, library, or tool. Spring Cloud–an open-source library–makes it easy to develop JVM applications for the cloud. In this book, you will be introduced to Spring Cloud and will master its features from the application developer's point of view. This book begins by introducing you to microservices for Spring and the available feature set in Spring Cloud. You will learn to configure the Spring Cloud server and run the Eureka server to enable service registration and discovery. Then you will learn about techniques related to load balancing and circuit breaking and utilize all features of the Feign client. The book now delves into advanced topics where you will learn to implement distributed tracing solutions for Spring Cloud and build message-driven microservice architectures. Before running an application on Docker container s, you will master testing and securing techniques with Spring Cloud.

Chapter 14. Docker Support

We have already discussed the basics of microservices architecture and Spring Cloud projects in the first part of this book. In the second part, we looked at the most common elements of that architecture and we discussed how to implement them using Spring Cloud. So far, we have talked about some important topics related to microservice migration, such as centralized logging, distributed tracing, security, and automated testing. Now, as we are armed with that knowledge, we may proceed to the final part of the book, where we will discuss the real power of microservices as a cloud-native development approach. The ability to isolate applications from each other using containerization tools, implementing continuous deployment in the software delivery process and the ability to easily scale an application are things that all contribute to the rapidly growing popularity of microservices.

As you will probably remember from earlier chapters, we have used Docker images for...
