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.

Chapter 7. Pipe-and-Filter Architectures

In this chapter, we will review a useful paradigm architecture named Pipe-and-Filter, and you will learn how to implement an application using the Spring Framework.

We will also explain how to build a pipeline that encapsulates an independent chain of tasks aimed at filtering and processing large amounts of data, focusing on the use of Spring Batch.

The following topics will be covered in this chapter:

  • An introduction to Pipe-and-Filter concepts
  • Boarding Pipe-and-Filter architectures
  • Use cases for Pipe-and-Filter architecture
  • Spring Batch
  • Implementing pipes with Spring Batch

We’ll start by providing an introduction to Pipe-and-Filter architecture and the concepts associated with it.
