Hands-On Enterprise Java Microservices with Eclipse MicroProfile

Book Description

An effective guide to designing, building, and deploying microservices with Eclipse MicroProfile

Key Features

  • Create cloud-native microservices with ease using this detailed guide
  • Avoid vendor lock-in when implementing microservices using Eclipse MicroProfile
  • Discover why MicroProfile is a great specification for building microservices in multi-cloud environments

Book Description

Eclipse MicroProfile has gained momentum in the industry as a multi-vendor, interoperable, community-driven specification. It is a major disruptor that allows organizations with large investments in enterprise Java to move to microservices without spending a lot on retraining their workforce.

This book is based on MicroProfile 2.2, however, it will guide you in running your applications in MicroProfile 3.0. You'll start by understanding why microservices are important in the economy and how MicroProfile addresses the need for enterprise Java microservices. You'll learn about the subprojects that make up a MicroProfile, its value proposition to organizations and developers, and its processes and governance. As you advance, the book takes you through the capabilities and examples of MicroProfile's subprojects - Config, Fault Tolerance, Health Check, JWT Propagation, Metrics, and OpenTracing. Finally, you'll be guided in developing a conference application using Eclipse MicroProfile, and explore possible scenarios of what's next in MicroProfile with Jakarta EE.

By the end of this book, you'll have gained a clear understanding of Eclipse MicroProfile and its role in enterprise Java microservices.
