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.

Understanding the gaps in BrownField PSS microservices

In Chapter 5, Scaling Microservices with Spring Cloud, BrownField PSS microservices were developed using Spring Boot and Spring Cloud. These microservices are deployed as versioned fat JAR files on bare metals, specifically on a local development machine.

In Chapter 6, Autoscaling Microservices, the autoscaling capability was added with the help of a custom life cycle manager. In Chapter 7, Logging and Monitoring Microservices, challenges around logging and monitoring were addressed using centralized logging and monitoring solutions.

There are still a few gaps in our BrownField PSS implementation. So far, the implementation has not used any cloud infrastructure. Dedicated machines, as in traditional monolithic application deployments, are not the best solution for deploying microservices. Automation such as automatic provisioning, the ability to scale on demand, self-service, and payment based on usage are essential capabilities required...
