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.

Whether you're starting a new project or splitting an existing legacy application into separate microservices, you have to work on all the necessary steps to bring an application from development to production.

Accelerating the development process

Let's start at the development stage. When you're working on old applications, you usually have to go through the following steps before writing the first line of code:

  1. Install the required tools in your local machine.
  2. Set up all the required dependencies.
  3. Create one or more configuration files.
  4. Discover all the missing parts that were not listed as part of the documentation.
  5. Load the test data.
  6. Run the application.

Now, let's say you're working as part of a team that owns many microservices that are written in different programming languages and that use different...
