Hiding Services & Runtime Discovery with Spring Cloud Gateway

Ben Wilcock – Spring Marketing, Pivotal.
Brian McClain – Technical Marketing, Pivotal.

It’s rare for a company to want every API to be publicly accessible. Most prefer to keep their services secret by default, only exposing APIs publicly when absolutely necessary.

It’s a very popular pattern.
