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.

Spring Boot makes developing Spring-based applications easy. It enables us to create production-ready applications very quickly.

In this lesson, we understood the different external configuration options provided by Spring Boot. We looked at embedded servers and deployed a test application to a PaaS Cloud platform--Cloud Foundry. We explored how to monitor our application in the production using Spring Boot Actuator. At the end, we looked at the features that make a developer more productive--Spring Boot developer tools and live reload.

With this, we've come to the end of this book. I hope you'd a smooth journey and gained a lot of knowledge on building microservices with Spring Boot.

I wish you all the best for your future projects. Keep learning and exploring!
