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

Difference between VM and containers

Virtual machines such as Hyper-V, VMWare, and Zen were popular choices for data center virtualization a few years back. Enterprises experienced cost savings by implementing virtualization over traditional bare metal usage. It has also helped many enterprises to utilize their existing infrastructure in a much more optimized manner. Since VMs support automation, many enterprises have experienced less management efforts with virtual machines. Virtual machines have also helped organizations to get isolated environments for applications to run.

On prima facie, both virtualization and containerization exhibit exactly the same characteristics. However, in a nutshell, containers, and virtual machines are not the same. Therefore, it is unfair to make an apple-to-apple comparison between VMs and containers. Virtual machines and containers are two different techniques that address different problems of virtualization. This difference is evident in the following diagram...
