Is microservice architecture right for your organization? These services have many benefits, but they also come with their own set of drawbacks. In this hands-on, example-driven guide, Java developers and architects will learn how to navigate popular application frameworks, such as Dropwizard and Spring Boot, and how to deploy and manage microservices at scale with Linux containers.
Adopting microservices requires much more than changes to your technology. Author Christian Posta—a Principal Middleware Specialist/Architect at Red Hat—also examines the organizational agility necessary to deliver these services. This concise book shows you how rapid feedback cycles, autonomous teams, and shared purpose are key to making microservices work.
- Understand why microservices require you to think differently about building, deploying, and operating cloud-native applications
- Dive into the popular Spring Boot, Dropwizard, and WildFly Swarm frameworks for designing microservices
- Use Docker and Kubernetes to deploy microservices, regardless of language
- Learn cluster management, failover, and load-balancing techniques for running microservices at scale
