Spring: Microservices with Spring Boot

By: Ranga Rao Karanam

Overview of this book

Microservices helps in decomposing applications into small services and move away from a single monolithic artifact. It helps in building systems that are scalable, flexible, and high resilient. Spring Boot helps in building REST-oriented, production-grade microservices. This book is a quick learning guide on how to build, monitor, and deploy microservices with Spring Boot. You'll be first familiarized with Spring Boot before delving into building microservices. You will learn how to document your microservice with the help of Spring REST docs and Swagger documentation. You will then learn how to secure your microservice with Spring Security and OAuth2. You will deploy your app using a self-contained HTTP server and also learn to monitor a microservice with the help of Spring Boot actuator. This book is ideal for Java developers who knows the basics of Spring programming and want to build microservices with Spring Boot. This book is embedded with useful assessments that will help you revise the concepts you have learned in this book. This book is repurposed for this specific learning experience from material from Packt's Mastering Spring 5.0 by Ranga Rao Karanam.

Chapter 3. Advanced Spring Boot Features

In the previous lesson, we extended our microservice with exception handling, HATEOAS, caching, and internationalization. In this lesson, let's turn our attention to deploying our services to production. To be able to deploy the services to production, we need to be able to set up and create functionality to configure, deploy, and monitor services.

The following are some of the questions we will answer during this lesson:

  • How to externalize application configuration?

  • How to use profiles to configure environment-specific values?

  • How to deploy our application to the Cloud?

  • What is an embedded server? How can you use Tomcat, Jetty, and Undertow?

  • What monitoring features does Spring Boot Actuator provide?

  • How can you be a more productive developer with Spring Boot?
