Look inside

You’re a software engineer at Chill+, a video streaming platform that uses Java to develop its microservice architecture running on Kubernetes. Thanks to the company’s soaring popularity, Chill+ is scaling out its Kubernetes cluster. Your task is to reduce infrastructure costs, which are growing faster than the company’s customer base. To achieve your goal, you’ll add security that reduces resource consumption. You’ll implement an authentication layer, integrated with developer-friendly Quarkus Keycloak, on the company’s Catalog API. You’ll restrict access to the API’s endpoint according to users’ roles, tune the Keycloak Dev Services to match the Catalog’s API context, and verify the security implementation leveraging Quarkus’s easy-to-use testing libraries.

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

This liveProject is for software engineers with knowledge of OpenId Connect and building Java applications. To begin these liveProjects you’ll need to be familiar with the following:

  • Basic understanding of using Maven to build a Java-based application
  • Basic understanding of Docker containers
  • Basic understanding of the OpenID protocol
  • Run curl commands and use Linux environment variables on the command line
  • Develop small API-oriented applications using Java frameworks (Spring, Micronaut, JakartaEE, Vert.x)
  • Develop Java tests using frameworks like JUnit, Mockito, and test containers


You choose the schedule and decide how much time to invest as you build your project.
