about the technology
The microservices design separates applications built with tightly coupled components into a system of independent, single-responsibility services that you can write and maintain individually. Building microservices-based applications presents some new design and implementation challenges, especially in the area of messaging, transactions, and state. The payoff can be big, though. This approach makes it easier to share work between teams and quicker to bring software to production.
about the book
In Microservices: A Practical Guide, architecture expert Eberhard Wolff starts by introducing microservices, self-contained systems, and the migration to microservices architecture. You’ll then move on to cookbook-style recipes that answer the most common challenges and operations of implementing microservices, including client-side and server-side frontend integration, asynchronous microservices, synchronous systems, and utilizing microservices platforms such as Kubernetes, Istio, and Cloud Foundry. Each recipe is fully illustrated with demo code and suggested variations that make them easy to adapt to your needs. By the time you’re done, you’ll have the skills to start implementing microservices architecture and a handy guide to consult as you work.
Migrating to microservices
Asynchronous microservices with Apache Kafka or REST/Atom
Synchronous microservices with the Netflix Stack or Consul
Microservice platforms: Kubernetes, Cloud Foundry, or Istio
Monitoring with Prometheus
Log Analysis with Elasticsearch and Kibana
Tracing with Zipkin
