Key Features

  • Follow best practices and explore techniques such as clustering and caching to achieve a reactive, scalable web service,
  • Leverage the Spring Framework to quickly implement RESTful endpoints,
  • Learn to implement a client library for a RESTful web service using the Spring Framework along with the new front end framework.

Book Description

REST is an architectural style that tackles the challenges of building scalable web services. In today's connected world, APIs have taken a central role on the web. APIs provide the fabric through which systems interact, and REST has become synonymous with APIs.The depth, breadth, and ease of use of Spring makes it one of the most attractive frameworks in the Java ecosystem. Marrying the two technologies is therefore a very natural choice.This book takes you through the of RESTful web services and leverages the Spring Framework to implement these services. Starting from the basics of the philosophy behind REST, you'll go through the steps of designing and implementing an enterprise-grade RESTful web service. Taking a practical approach, each chapter provides samples that you can apply to your own circumstances.This second edition brings forth the power of the latest Spring 5.0 release, working with MVC built-in as well as the front end framework. It then goes beyond the use of Spring to explores approaches to tackle resilience, , and scalability concerns. Improve performance of your applications with the new HTTP 2.0 standards. You'll learn techniques to deal with in Spring and discover how to implement unit and test strategies.Finally, the book ends by walking you through building a Java client for your RESTful web service, along with some scaling techniques using the new Spring Reactive libraries.
