In this liveProject, you’ll improve the caching mechanism between a Catalog API and microservices. This will reduce the number of unnecessary requests, and reduce costs from your cloud provider. You’ll explore near cache, remote cache, and proxy cache mechanisms, then evaluate the pros-and-cons of each approach.
This liveProject is for Java developers looking to reduce the costs of microservices architectures. To begin this liveProject, you will need to be familiar with:
- Basic Java
- Basics of any Java IDE: Eclipse, IntelliJ IDEA, Visual Studio Code
- Basic Maven
- Basic Spring and Spring Boot
- Basic Docker and Docker Compose
- Understanding the principles of REST
- Basic knowledge of microservices
you will learn
In this liveProject, you’ll learn easy-to-implement techniques for reducing unnecessary data transfer between microservices.
- Working with an internal cache in each instance of microservices
- Working with a cache in front a particular API
- Best practices and pros/cons of each mechanism of cache
- You choose the schedule and decide how much time to invest as you build your project.
- Project roadmap
- Each project is divided into several achievable steps.
- Get Help
- While within the liveProject platform, get help from other participants.
- Compare with others
- For each step, compare your deliverable to the solutions by the author and other participants.
