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.

Continuous Delivery

One of the key benefits of migrating to microservice-based architecture is the ability to deliver software quickly. This should be the main motivation for implementing continuous delivery or a continuous deployment process in your organization. In short, the continuous delivery process is an approach that tries to automate all the stages of software delivery such as building, testing a code, and releasing an application. There are many tools that empower that process. One of them is Jenkins, an open source automation server written in Java. Docker is something that can take your Continuous Integration (CI) or Continuous Delivery (CD) processes to a higher level. Immutable delivery, for example, is one of the most important advantages of Docker.

Integrating Jenkins with Docker

The main goal here is to design and run the continuous delivery process locally using Jenkins and Docker. There are four elements that have a part in this process. The first of them is already prepared...
