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

Introduction to Docker

Previous sections talked about containers and their benefits. Containers have been present in the business for years, but the popularity of Docker has given containers a new outlook. As a result, many container definitions and perspectives have emerged from the Docker architecture. Docker is so popular, that even containerization is referred to as Dockerization.

Docker is a platform to build, ship, and run lightweight containers based on Linux kernels. Docker has a default support for Linux platforms. They also have support for Mac and Windows using Boot2Docker, which runs on top of Virtual Box.

Amazon EC2 Container Service (ECS) has out-of-the-box support for Docker on AWS EC2 instances. Docker can be installed on bare metals and also on traditional virtual machines such as VMWare or Hyper-V.

Key components of Docker

The Docker installation has two key components. A Docker daemon and a Docker client. Both, Docker daemon and Docker client are distributed as a single binary...
