This book is a complete guide to building a Microservices Architecture, supported by an application that evolves from a small monolith to a microservice ecosystem. The author follows a very pragmatic approach to explain the benefits of using this type of software architecture, instead of keeping the reader distracted with just theoretical concepts.
A practical, evolving example
This book, in contrast to guides available on the Internet, is based on a realistic, evolving example. Short guides can't focus on the multiple aspects of building microservices, and normally don't fit into more complex scenarios. Besides, trying to combine these short guides to make up a real application means facing a lot of gaps in the big puzzle of microservices.
Guides are too shallow to help you building something real. On the other hand, most books about microservices are sometimes too focused on theory.
Some books are usually on the other side of the spectrum. They explain topics like Domain Driven Design, Event Sourcing, Service Discovery, API Gateway, Centralized Logging, Continuous Deployment, DevOps, Reactive Systems, Circuit-Breaker patterns, etc. But that might be overwhelming: where to start? Is it needed to use all of these concepts in a microservice architecture? How to put them in practice? Those are the questions answered in this book, supported with code examples from the included application.
This book covers some of the state-of-the-art techniques in computer programming, from a practical point of view:
- Microservices with Spring Boot
- Event Driven Architecture and Messaging with RabbitMQ
- RESTful services with Spring
- Service Discovery with Eureka and Load Balancing with Ribbon
- Routing requests with Zuul as your API Gateway
- Test Driven Development: write your tests first
- End to End Tests for an Event Driven Architecture using Cucumber
- Continuous Integration and Deployment
On the other hand, this book also helps the reader to focus on what's important, starting with the Minimum Viable Product but keeping the flexibility to evolve it.
