Building Microservices with Micronaut®

By: Nirmal Singh, Zack Dawood

Overview of this book

The open source Micronaut® framework is a JVM-based toolkit designed to create microservices quickly and easily. This book will help full-stack and Java developers build modular, high-performing, and reactive microservice-based apps using the Micronaut framework. You'll start by building microservices and learning about the core components, such as ahead-of-time compilation, reflection-less dependency injection, and reactive baked-in HTTP clients and servers. Next, you will work on a real-time microservice application and learn how to integrate Micronaut projects with different kinds of relational and non-relational databases. You'll also learn how to employ different security mechanisms to safeguard your microservices and integrate microservices using event-driven architecture in the Apache Kafka ecosystem. As you advance, you'll get to grips with automated testing and popular testing tools. The book will help you understand how you can easily handle microservice concerns in Micronaut projects, such as service discovery, API documentation, distributed configuration management, fallbacks, and circuit breakers. Finally, you'll explore the deployment and maintenance aspects of microservices and get up to speed with the Internet of Things (IoT) using the Framework. By the end of this book, you'll be able to build, test, deploy, and maintain your own microservice apps using the framework.

Conventions used

There are a number of text conventions used throughout this book.

Code in text: Indicates code words in text, database table names, folder names, filenames, file extensions, pathnames, dummy URLs, user input, and Twitter handles. Here is an example: "By following these instructions, we added a foo-stream topic and added a message to this topic."

A block of code is set as follows:

@KafkaClient
public interface VetReviewClient {
    @Topic("vet-reviews")
    void send(@Body VetReviewDTO vetReview);
}

Bold: Indicates a new term, an important word, or words that you see on screen. For example, words in menus or dialog boxes appear in the text like this. Here is an example: "As viewed on the Kafdrop, we can verify that our event from the pet-clinic-reviews microservice is streamed out and added to the vet-reviews topic."
