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.

Implementing Spring Boot security

It is important to secure microservices. In this section, some basic measures to secure Spring Boot microservices will be reviewed using chapter2.bootrest to demonstrate the security features.

Securing microservices with basic security

Adding basic authentication to Spring Boot is pretty simple. Add the following dependency to pom.xml. This will include the necessary Spring security library files:


Open and add @EnableGlobalMethodSecurity to the Application class. This annotation will enable method-level security:

public class Application {
    public static void main(String[] args) {, args);

The default basic authentication assumes the user as being user. The default password...
