Building Microservices with Spring

Overview of this book

Getting Started with Spring Microservices begins with an overview of the Spring Framework 5.0, its design patterns, and its guidelines that enable you to implement responsive microservices at scale. You will learn how to use GoF patterns in application design. You will understand the dependency injection pattern, which is the main principle behind the decoupling process of the Spring Framework and makes it easier to manage your code. Then, you will learn how to use proxy patterns in aspect-oriented programming and remoting. Moving on, you will understand the JDBC template patterns and their use in abstracting database access. After understanding the basics, you will move on to more advanced topics, such as reactive streams and concurrency. Written to the latest specifications of Spring that focuses on Reactive Programming, the Learning Path teaches you how to build modern, internet-scale Java applications in no time. Next, you will understand how Spring Boot is used to deploying serverless autonomous services by removing the need to have a heavyweight application server. You’ll also explore ways to deploy your microservices to Docker and managing them with Mesos. By the end of this Learning Path, you will have the clarity and confidence for implementing microservices using Spring Framework. This Learning Path includes content from the following Packt products: • Spring 5 Microservices by Rajesh R V • Spring 5 Design Patterns by Dinesh Rajput

Chapter 14. Containerizing Microservices with Docker

In the context of microservices, containerized deployment is like the icing on the cake. It helps microservices to be further autonomous by self-containing the underlying infrastructure, thereby making microservices cloud-neutral.

This chapter will introduce the concepts and relevance of virtual machine images and containerized deployments of microservices. Then, this chapter will further familiarize you with how to build Docker images for BrownField PSS microservices developed with Spring Boot and Spring Cloud. Finally, this chapter will also touch base on how to manage, maintain, and deploy Docker images in a production-like environment.

By the end of this chapter, you will have learned about the following:

  • The concept of containerization and its relevance in the context of microservices
  • How to build and deploy microservices as Docker images and containers
  • Using AWS as an example of cloud-based Docker deployments
