Webinar Replay: Consumer Driven Contracts and Your Microservice Architecture

Speaker: Marcin Grzejszczak
Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/MarcinGrzejszczak/consumer-driven-contracts-and-your-microservice-architecture-67641511

TDD introduced many improvements into the development process, but in our opinion the biggest impact relates to code design. Looking at the code from the usage perspective (by first writing an acceptance test) allows us to focus on usability rather than concrete implementation. Unfortunately, we usually rest on our laurels not trying to uplift this practice to the architecture level.

Spring Vault and Spring Cloud Vault 1.0.0.M1 are now available

On behalf of the community, I am pleased to announce the first milestone releases of Spring Vault and Spring Cloud Vault 1.0.0.M1.

The artifacts are available in the Milestone repo.

What is Spring Vault and Spring Cloud Vault?

Spring Vault is a client for HashiCorp Vault that provides familiar Spring abstractions. It comes with @VaultPropertySource that exposes encrypted properties from Vault the Environment and VaultTemplate to access secrets stored and encrypted inside Vault.

@Configuration
@VaultPropertySource("secret/my-application")
public class AppConfig extends AbstractVaultConfiguration {

    /**
     * Specify an endpoint for connecting to Vault.
     */
    @Override
    public VaultEndpoint vaultEndpoint() {
        return VaultEndpoint.create("localhost", 8200);
    }

    /**
     * Configure a client authentication.
     */
    @Override
    public ClientAuthentication clientAuthentication() {
        return new TokenAuthentication("…");
    }
}

Spring Cloud Pipelines 1.0.0.M2 Released

On behalf of the Spring Cloud team it is my pleasure to announce a new milestone release of Spring Cloud Pipelines - 1.0.0.M2. Apart from some bug fixes it’s providing an out of the box support for Gradle projects.

In order for the Gradle project to work out of the box the following opinionated decisions were taken:

  • usage of Gradlew Wrapper

  • custom deploy task is used for artifacts deployment

  • running smoke tests on a deployed app via the custom smoke task

  • running end to end tests on a deployed app via the custom e2e task

  • custom groupId task to retrieve group id

  • custom artifactId task to retrieve artifact id

  • custom currentVersion task to retrieve the current version

  • custom stubIds task to retrieve list of collaborators for which stubs should be downloaded

Webinar: Bootiful CQRS with Axon - Nov 16

Speakers: Josh Long, Allard Buijze

We get it already! Microservices let you decompose your application into small, singly-focused, reusable and internally consistent bounded contexts - services - deployed over a network.

Great, but that still doesn’t help me get these systems to agree on the worldview of my domain! And that’s because…there is no world view of the model that is correct for all services involved.

Join Axon framework founder and lead, Allard Buijze at Trifork and Spring Developer Advocate Josh Long, for a look at how to integrate different systems with different read and write characteristics using Axon, a CQRS (Command Query Responsibility Segregation) framework that builds on Spring and Spring Boot.
