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.

Reviewing BrownField's PSS implementation

In Chapter 4, Microservices Evolution – A Case Study, we designed and developed a microservice-based PSS system for BrownField Airlines using the Spring framework and Spring Boot. The implementation is satisfactory from the development point of view, and it serves the purpose for low volume transactions. However, this is not good enough for deploying large, enterprise-scale deployments with hundreds or even thousands of microservices.

In Chapter 4, Microservices Evolution – A Case Study, we developed four microservices: Search, Booking, Fares, and Check-in. We also developed a website to test the microservices.

We have accomplished the following items in our microservice implementation so far:

  • Each microservice exposes a set of REST/JSON endpoints for accessing business capabilities

  • Each microservice implements certain business functions using the Spring framework.

  • Each microservice stores its own persistent data using H2, an in-memory database

  • Microservices...
