Look inside

You’re a senior developer at Travel World Agency (TWA). Management is surprised at the amount computing costs have increased, but before introducing potentially disruptive cost-reducing measures they need to determine how to improve the quality of the microservices. Your task is to simulate random problems, using Spring Boot’s Chaos Monkey library, to determine whether any scenarios exist that aren’t addressed by the code. To test your conclusions, you’ll use the Chaos Toolkit to generate concrete problems. When you’re done, you’ll have the skills to spotlight issues that aren’t always revealed through unit testing.

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 implement tests by creating random problems in a microservices ecosystem that uses Spring Boot. 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 introduce random problems into your platforms that can spotlight issues that aren’t always revealed through unit testing.

  • Create random problems manually that stop the execution of some components
  • Create problems using tools like Chaos Monkey that have a set of different situations you can introduce
  • Create automatic problems to interact with Chaos Monkey using ChaosIQ
