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.

What is messaging?

Messaging is a mode of interaction between software components or applications, where clients can send messages to, and receive messages from, any other client.

This message exchange can be done using a component called broker. The broker provides all the necessary support and services to exchange messages along with the capability of interacting with other interfaces. These interfaces are known as Message Oriented Middleware (MOM). The following diagram depicts a MOM-based messaging system:

Messaging systems reduce the complexity of developing distributed applications using the AMQP, STOMP, and XMPP protocols. Let's discuss them in detail:

  • AMQP: AMQP is an open, standard layer application protocol for asynchronous messaging systems. In AMQP, messages should be transmitted in binary format.
  • STOMP: STOMP stands for Simple Text Oriented Messaging Protocol...
