Engineering | Josh Long | September 06, 2022 | ...

Hi, Spring fans! How are you? It's a fantastic Tuesday, the 5th of September, 2022, and I couldn't be happier. It's also Labor Day weekend here in the US.

Hi, Spring fans! How are you? How're you doin' this fine tuesday morning? I'm doing well, of course, because this week VMware's tentpole show - VMware Explore - is happening not even a mile from my home, here in San Francisco!

  1. First, a client makes a network request to the Gateway
  2. The Gateway is defined with a number of routes, each with Predicates to match the request to the route. For example, you can match on the path segment of the URL or the HTTP method of the request.
