Modulithic Applications with Spring

Modulithic Applications with Spring

About the Book

Monoliths and microservices represent two opposing ends in the spectrum of architectural arrangements of software systems. Modu­lithic App­li­ca­tions with Spring explores the space between those extremes and how software systems built with Java can be designed to give architects means to align functional, operational and developmental requirements to different abstraction levels of their system design.

The book takes you on a tour starting at fundamental project decomposition approaches, outlines ways to bridge architecture and code, and ends up discussing how Spring and its ecosystem of projects help developers to take their architectural concepts from idea to implementation.

Topics covered:

  • Decomposing a Java project for encapsulation
  • Representing architectural concepts in a code base
  • How to extract those concepts for documentation purposes
  • Application component design and how Spring helps to assemble those
  • Domain- and persistence model design with jMolecules and Spring Data
  • Cross-module interaction
  • Testing individual modules as well as the system as a whole
