Look inside

Greengrocer has built a new supplier API as part of its endeavor to handle growing market demand. Your task, as a software developer on its IT team, is to enhance this microservices API—and the administrator experience—by designing and developing custom methods that address exceptional side effects, implementing long-running jobs, and clearly defining the interactions between them.

This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.

Harihara Subramanian J

With a proven track record in software development, software architecture principles, and implementations, Hari Subramanian has been working with software development and various software architecture concepts since 1999. He’s designed and developed over 20 microservice applications adhering to API design principles and API design patterns and has an affinity for patterns and anti-patterns.

Cloud native computing, cloud architecture, legacy product transformations, cloud migration strategies, and cloud design patterns are his current areas of focus. He’s also an active contributor to various forums on different technologies and has co-authored the books Architecture Patterns and Hands-on RESTful API Design Patterns and Best Practices.


This liveProject is for learners who want to gain practical experience with RESTful APIs, microservices, design principles, and API design patterns. To begin these liveProjects you’ll need to be familiar with the following:

  • Any Java IDE
  • JDK 8 or higher
  • API Design-First
  • Open API Spec
  • SLA and Payloads
  • JSON
  • XML
  • Custom methods
  • Batch operations

you will learn

In this liveProject, you’ll learn to design, develop, and enhance the supplier API with custom methods to address exceptional cases that standard methods don’t.

  • Implement patterns to trigger and complete side effects of API functionalities
  • Implement asynchronous methods for supplier API administrators
  • Implement a mechanism for interactions that helps the administrators know the status of long-running jobs
