Fundamentals of Microservices Design

Define the correct microservice scope When we talk about the scope of a microservice, we are referring to the features of an independent software module. The ability of microservices to perform as a nearly-stateless system allows it to be developed independently. Create a unique service which will act as an identifying source, much like a unique key in a database table. Have loose coupling with high cohesion We should create correct API and take special care during integration. The microservices style is usually organized around business capabilities and priorities.  Unlike a traditional monolithic development approach—where different teams each have a specific focus on, say, UIs, databases, technology layers, or server-side logic—microservice architecture utilizes cross-functional teams.  The responsibilities of each team are to make specific products based on one or more individual services communicating via message bus. In microservices, a team owns the product for its lifetime. Restrict access to data… Read more“Fundamentals of Microservices Design”

Why Spring cloud is required?

When we develop microservices with Spring Boot , we might face the below mentioned issues hence spring cloud project helps to eliminate these issues.Spring cloud is set of tools to manage and establish the service Discovery, config management and Circuit Breakers etc. It manages and handles following very efficiently, 1. Any of the network and security issues. 2. Service discovery tools manage how processes and services in a cluster can find and talk to one another. It involves a directory of services, registering services in that directory, and then being able to lookup and connect to services in that directory. 3. Redundancy issues in distributed systems. 4. Load balancing improves the distribution of workloads across multiple computing resources, such as computers, a computer cluster, network links, central processing units, or disk drives. 5. Performance issues due to various operational overheads. 6. Requirement of deployment and continuous integration.
