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.

Introducing Docker

Docker is a tool that helps you to create, deploy, and run applications by using containers. It was designed with the view to benefit both developers and system administrators in accordance with the DevOps philosophy. Docker helps to improve the software delivery process by solving some important concerns related with it. One of those concerns is the idea of immutable delivery, which is related to something called it works for me. It is especially important that a developer uses the same image for their tests as the one that is used in production when working in Docker. The only difference that should be seen is during configuration. Software delivery in an immutable delivery pattern seems to be particularly important for a microservices-based system as there are many applications deployed independently. Thanks to Docker, developers can now focus on writing code without worrying about the target OS (where the application would be launched). The operation can, therefore...
