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 the importance of autoscaling when deploying large-scale microservices.

We also explored the concept of autoscaling and the different models of and approaches to autoscaling, such as the time-based, resource-based, queue length-based, and predictive ones. We then reviewed the role of a life cycle manager in the context of microservices and reviewed its capabilities. Finally, we ended this chapter by reviewing a sample implementation of a simple custom life cycle manager in the context of BrownField PSS microservices.

Autoscaling is an important supporting capability required when dealing with large-scale microservices. We will discuss a more mature implementation of the life cycle manager in Chapter 9, Managing Dockerized Microservices with Mesos and Marathon.

The next chapter will explore the logging and monitoring capabilities that are indispensable for successful microservice deployments.
