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.

Cluster management solutions

There are many cluster management software tools available. It is unfair to do an apple-to-apple comparison between them. Even though there are no one-to-one components, there are many areas of overlap in capabilities between them. In many situations, organizations use a combination of one or more of these tools to fulfill their requirements.

The following diagram shows the position of cluster management tools from the microservices context:

In this section, we will explore some of the popular cluster management solutions available on the market.

Docker Swarm

Docker Swarm is Docker's native cluster management solution. Swarm provides a native and deeper integration with Docker and exposes APIs that are compatible with Docker's remote APIs. Docker Swarm logically groups a pool of Docker hosts and manages them as a single large Docker virtual host. Instead of application administrators and developers deciding on which host the container is to be deployed in, this decision...
