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.

Deploying microservices in Docker

This section will operationalize our learning by showcasing how to build containers for our BrownField PSS microservices.


The full source code of this chapter is available under the Chapter 8 project in the code files. Copy chapter7.configserver, chapter7.eurekaserver,,, and into a new STS workspace and rename them chapter8.*.

Perform the following steps to build Docker containers for BrownField PSS microservices:

  1. Install Docker from the official Docker site at

    Follow the Get Started link for the download and installation instructions based on the operating system of choice. Once installed, use the following command to verify the installation:

    $docker –version
    Docker version 1.10.1, build 9e83765
  2. In this section, we will take a look at how to dockerize the Search ( microservice, the Search API Gateway ( microservice, and the Website...
