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.

The difference between VMs and containers

VMs such as Hyper-V, VMWare, and Zen were popular choices for data center virtualization a few years ago. Enterprises experienced a cost saving by implementing virtualization over the traditional bare metal usage. It has also helped many enterprises utilize their existing infrastructure in a much more optimized manner. As VMs support automation, many enterprises experienced that they had to make lesser management effort with virtual machines. Virtual machines also helped organizations get isolated environments for applications to run in.

Prima facie, both virtualization and containerization exhibit exactly the same characteristics. However, in a nutshell, containers and virtual machines are not the same. Therefore, it is unfair to make an apple-to-apple comparison between VMs and containers. Virtual machines and containers are two different techniques and address different problems of virtualization. This difference is evident from the following...
