Spring Microservices

Overview of this book

The Spring Framework is an application framework and inversion of the control container for the Java platform. The framework's core features can be used by any Java application, but there are extensions to build web applications on top of the Java EE platform. This book will help you implement the microservice architecture in Spring Framework, Spring Boot, and Spring Cloud. Written to the latest specifications of Spring, you'll be able to build modern, Internet-scale Java applications in no time. We would start off with the guidelines to implement responsive microservices at scale. We will then deep dive into Spring Boot, Spring Cloud, Docker, Mesos, and Marathon. Next you will understand how Spring Boot is used to deploy autonomous services, server-less by removing the need to have a heavy-weight application server. Later you will learn how to go further by deploying your microservices to Docker and manage it with Mesos. By the end of the book, you'll will gain more clarity on how to implement microservices using Spring Framework and use them in Internet-scale deployments through real-world examples.

Meeting the trio – microservices, DevOps, and cloud

The trio—cloud, microservices, and DevOps—targets a set of common objectives: speed of delivery, business value, and cost benefit. All three can stay and evolve independently, but they complement each other to achieve the desired common goals. Organizations embarking on any of these naturally tend to consider the other two as they are closely linked together:

Many organizations start their journey with DevOps as an organizational practice to achieve high-velocity release cycles but eventually move to the microservices architecture and cloud. It is not mandatory to have microservices and cloud support DevOps. However, automating the release cycles of large monolithic applications does not make much sense, and in many cases, it would be impossible to achieve. In such scenarios, the microservices architecture and cloud will be handy when implementing DevOps.

If we flip a coin, cloud does not need a microservices architecture to achieve its benefits...
