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.

Pivotal Cloud Foundry

Although the Pivotal platform can run applications written in many languages, including Java, .NET, Ruby, JavaScript, Python, PHP, and Go, it has the best support for Spring Cloud Services and Netflix OSS tools. It makes perfect sense because they are the ones who developed Spring Cloud. Take a look at the following diagram, which is also available on Pivotal's official website. The following diagram illustrates the microservices-based architecture provided by the Pivotal Cloud platform. You can use Spring Cloud on Cloud Foundry to quickly leverage common microservice patterns, including distributed configuration management, service discovery, dynamic routing, load balancing, and fault tolerance:

Usage models

You can use the Pivotal platform in three different models. Models are distinguished based on the host, which is where the applications are deployed. The following is a list of the available solutions:
