Microservices with Spring Boot
With Spring Boot, your microservices can start small and iterate fast. That’s why it has become the de facto standard for Java™ microservices. Quickstart your project with Spring Initializr and then package as a JAR. With Spring Boot’s embedded server model, you’re ready to go in minutes.
Microservice resilience with Spring Cloud
The distributed nature of microservices brings challenges. Spring helps you mitigate these. With several ready-to-run cloud patterns, Spring Cloud
can help with service discovery, load-balancing, circuit-breaking, distributed tracing, and monitoring. It can even act as an API gateway.
Build streaming data microservices with Spring Cloud Stream
Spring Cloud Stream makes it easy to consume and produce events, no matter which messaging platform you choose. Spring Cloud Stream connects your microservices with real-time messaging in just a few lines of code, to help you build highly scalable, event-driven systems.
Manage your microservices
Spring Boot’s optional instrumentation framework, Micrometer
, sends metrics straight to Prometheus, Atlas, and more to provide valuable insights. This is complemented by Spring Cloud’s
Sleuth and Zipkin projects which offer distributed tracing so that you can follow along with what’s happening in real-time.
Microservices on Cloud Foundry
The small, stateless nature of microservices makes them ideal for horizontal scaling. Platforms like TAS and PKS can provide scalable infrastructure to match, with and greatly reduce your administrative overhead. Using cloud connectors, you can also consume multiple backend services with ease.
