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

About Packt


In this chapter, you learned about the Reactive pattern and its principles. It is not a new innovation in programming--it is a very old concept, but it very fits in very well with the demands of modern applications.

Reactive programming has four principles: responsiveness, resilience, elasticity, and message-driven architecture. Responsiveness means a system must be responsive in all conditions: odd conditions and even conditions.

The Spring 5 Framework provides support for the reactive programming model by using the Reactor framework and reactive stream. Spring has introduced new a reactive web module, that is, spring-web-reactive. It provides the reactive programming approach to a web application by either using Spring MVC's annotations, such as @Controller, @RestController, and @RequestMapping, or by using the functional programming approach using the Java 8 Lambda expression.

In this chapter, we created a web application by using the spring web reactive modules. The code for this...
