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.

Release management

To bring your code to production, the process must be planned out.

This process of planning is called release management. Throughout this process, we need to take care of the integrity and consistency of the existing services, guaranteeing the operation of our systems.

To understand the steps involved in the release management process, we are going to look at the following concepts:

  • pipelines
  • Continuous integration
  • Continuous delivery and continuous deployment


A pipeline is a sequence of steps that we must go through to accomplish a goal. We looked at this concept in Chapter 7Pipe-and-Filter Architectures. The same concept in this context is used to execute a sequence of steps in our release management process. A pipeline will assist us during the software delivery process in different environments. We are going to create a simple pipeline that consists of five stages:

  • Automatically building our projects
  • Running tests (such as unit and integration)
  • Deploying to staging...
