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.

Relationship with microservices

The infrastructure of microservices, if not properly provisioned, can easily result in oversized infrastructures and, essentially, a higher cost of ownership. As discussed in the previous sections, a cloud-like environment with a cluster management tool is essential to realize cost benefits when dealing with large-scale microservices.

The Spring Boot microservices turbocharged with the Spring Cloud project is the ideal candidate workload to leverage cluster management tools. As Spring Cloud-based microservices are location unaware, these services can be deployed anywhere in the cluster. Whenever services come up, they automatically register to the service registry and advertise their availability. On the other hand, consumers always look for the registry to discover the available service instances. This way, the application supports a full fluid structure without preassuming a deployment topology. With Docker, we were able to abstract the runtime so that the...
