Look inside

Travel World Agency (TWA) has enjoyed rapid growth, but its computing costs have risen along with its success. Before implementing potentially disruptive cost-reducing measures to their next-gen system running on Amazon Web Services (AWS), it needs to improve the quality of its microservices. As a senior developer, your task is to detect whether any change in the request/response of the endpoints might affect the rest of the microservices. You’ll use Pact to define the contract between multiple microservices using the HTTP method, the name of the endpoint, and the requests and responses. By the end, you’ll be able to detect problems that could result from a change to the name, HTTP method, or the attributes that contain the requests and responses of one endpoint.

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

book resources

When you start your liveProject, you get full access to the following books for 90 days.

project author

Andres Sacco

Andres Sacco is a technical leader at Prisma who has experience with many different languages including Java, PHP, and Node.js. At his previous job, Andres helped to find alternative ways to optimize data transfer between microservices, which reduced the cost of infrastructure by 55%. Before introducing these optimizations, he investigated different testing methods for better coverage than unit tests of the microservices. He also dictated internal courses about new technologies and has written articles on Medium. Andres is a co-author of the book Beginning Scala 3, from Apress.

prerequisites

This liveProject is for Java developers who are interested in learning to determine whether a change in the request/response might affect other microservices. To begin this liveProject, you should be familiar with the following:

TOOLS
  • Any Java IDE: Eclipse, IntelliJ IDEA, Visual Studio Code
  • Basic Maven
  • Basic Spring and Spring Boot
  • Basic Docker and Docker Compose
  • Basic Jenkins
TECHNIQUES
  • Basic Java
  • Basic Spring Boot
  • Basic Docker and Docker Compose commands
  • REST principles
  • Basic knowledge of microservices

you will learn

In this liveProject, you’ll learn to detect possible problems in the platform as a result of a change to the name, HTTP method, or the attributes that contain the requests and responses of one endpoint.

  • Add dependencies and logic to create a simple test of one endpoint
  • Create a test of one endpoint that uses an external service
  • Create a test of one endpoint that obtains information from a database
  • Reuse the API test to validate the performance of one endpoint
  • Add multiple tests into one Jenkins pipeline
