Look inside
In this liveProject, you’ll implement methods of compression to reduce the size of data that microservices return as a response. You’ll use the built-in compression tools of Spring Boot to set up microservices data responses in a gzip format, then explore using databases like Redis to compress data with the serializer of data offered by Spring Boot.
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.
