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.

Commonly used Docker commands

After installing Docker Toolbox on Windows you should run Docker Quickstart Terminal. It does everything that is needed, including creating and starting Docker Machine and providing the command line interface. If you type a Docker command without any parameters, you should now be able to see the full list of available Docker client commands with descriptions. These are the types of commands we will look at:

  • Running and stopping a container
  • List and remove container
  • Pull and push images
  • Building an image
  • Networking

Running and stopping a container

The first Docker command that is usually run after installation is docker run. As you may remember, this command is one of the most commonly used in previous examples. This command does two things: it pulls and downloads the image definition from the registry, in case it is not cached locally, and starts the container. There are many options that can be set for this command, which you can easily check by running docker run...
