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.

Chapter 5. Scaling Microservices with Spring Cloud

In order to manage Internet-scale microservices, one requires more capabilities than what are offered by the Spring Boot framework. The Spring Cloud project has a suite of purpose-built components to achieve these additional capabilities effortlessly.

This chapter will provide a deep insight into the various components of the Spring Cloud project such as Eureka, Zuul, Ribbon, and Spring Config by positioning them against the microservices capability model discussed in Chapter 3, Applying Microservices Concepts. It will demonstrate how the Spring Cloud components help to scale the BrownField Airline's PSS microservices system, developed in the previous chapter.

By the end of this chapter, you will learn about the following:

  • The Spring Config server for externalizing configuration

  • The Eureka server for service registration and discovery

  • The relevance of Zuul as a service proxy and gateway

  • The implementation of automatic microservice registration...
