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.

Logging with Spring Boot

Spring Boot uses Apache Commons Logging for internal logging, but if you are including dependencies with starters, Logback will be used by default in your application. It doesn't inhibit the possibility of using other logging frameworks in any way. The default configurations are also provided for Java Util Logging, Log4J2, and SLF4J. Logging settings may be configured in the application.yml file with logging.* properties. The default log output contains the date and time in milliseconds, log level, process ID, thread name, the full name of the class that has emitted the entry, and the message. It may be overridden by using the logging.pattern.console and logging.pattern.file properties respectively for the console and file appenders.

By default, Spring Boot only logs on to a console. In order to allow the writing of log files in addition to a console output, you should set a logging.file or logging.path property. If you specify the logging.file property, the logs...
