Hands-On High Performance with Spring 5

By: Chintan Mehta, Subhash Shah, Pritesh Shah, Prashant Goswami, Dinesh Radadiya

Overview of this book

While writing an application, performance is paramount. Performance tuning for real-world applications often involves activities geared toward detecting bottlenecks. The recent release of Spring 5.0 brings major advancements in the rich API provided by the Spring framework, which means developers need to master its tools and techniques to achieve high performance applications. Hands-On High Performance with Spring 5 begins with the Spring framework's core features, exploring the integration of different Spring projects. It proceeds to evaluate various Spring specifications to identify those adversely affecting performance. You will learn about bean wiring configurations, aspect-oriented programming, database interaction, and Hibernate to focus on the metrics that help identify performance bottlenecks. You will also look at application monitoring, performance optimization, JVM internals, and garbage collection optimization. Lastly, the book will show you how to leverage the microservice architecture to build a high performance and resilient application. By the end of the book, you will have gained an insight into various techniques and solutions to build and troubleshoot high performance Spring-based applications.

Microservices using Spring Boot

We have a hefty amount of information about Spring Boot now from the previous sections. With the information that we have so far, we are now in a position to build microservices using Spring Boot. Before jumping into the implementation of our first microservice with Spring Boot, to proceed with implementing the first microservice, it is assumed that you know basic information about microservices, including the issues with monoliths, what microservices are, and the features microservices bring to the table.

First microservice with Spring Boot

The following are the details of the microservice that we are going to develop:

  • We will implement an accounting service as a microservice.
  • The microservice...
