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.

We have reached the end of our Spring Cloud microservices journey! Our exercises began with simple deployments on the local machine, but in the last chapter we deployed our microservices in an environment fully-managed by the cloud vendor, which also automatically built, started, and exposed HTTP APIs on specified domains. I personally think that it is amazing how easily we can run, scale, and expose data outside an application using any of the most popular programming languages or third-party tools, such as a database or a message broker. In fact, each one of us can now implement and launch a production-ready application to the web within a few hours without worrying about the software that has to be installed.

This chapter has shown you how easily you can run Spring Cloud microservices on different platforms. The given examples illustrate the real power of cloud-native applications. No matter whether you launch an application locally on your laptop, inside a Docker Container, using...
