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.

In this chapter, you learned about Spring Boot and its key features to build production-ready applications.

We explored the previous-generation web applications and then how Spring Boot makes developers' lives easier to develop fully qualified microservices. We also discussed the asynchronous message-based interaction between services. Further, we explored how to achieve some of the key capabilities required for microservices, such as security, HATEOAS, cross-origin, configurations, and so on with practical examples. We also took a look at how Spring Boot actuators help the operations teams and also how we can customize it to our needs. Finally, documenting microservices APIs was also explored.

In the next chapter, we will take a deeper look at some of the practical issues that may arise when implementing microservices. We will also discuss a capability model that essentially helps organizations when dealing with large microservices implementations.
