Software Architecture with Spring 5.0

By: René Enríquez, Alberto Salazar

Overview of this book

Spring 5 and its ecosystem can be used to build robust architectures effectively. Software architecture is the underlying piece that helps us accomplish our business goals whilst supporting the features that a product demands. This book explains in detail how to choose the right architecture and apply best practices during your software development cycle to avoid technical debt and support every business requirement. Choosing the right architecture model to support your business requirements is one of the key decisions you need to take when a new product is being created from scratch or is being refactored to support new business demands. This book gives you insights into the most common architectural models and guides you when and where they can be used. During this journey, you’ll see cutting-edge technologies surrounding the Spring products, and understand how to use agile techniques such as DevOps and continuous delivery to take your software to production effectively. By the end of this book, you’ll not only know the ins and outs of Spring, but also be able to make critical design decisions that surpass your clients’ expectations.

In this chapter, we started reviewing the basic concepts of containers and how they are applied to Docker, one of the most popular products used for containerizing applications.

We then learned how to automate this process and made it part of the build process for a Java application, using Gradle as a build tool. The main intention behind automation is to be aligned to DevOps principles; we are going to talk about DevOps in detail in the following chapter. At the end of this chapter, we looked at other Docker tools that automate the provisioning process in development environments, and we also learned about Kubernetes and how it can be used for production environments. In the next chapter, we will review DevOps and release management concepts.
