A few weeks back, I went to Devoxx, an annual Java conference located in Belgium. One of the few hypes there was Spring framework 5 and the upcoming release of Spring boot 2.0. With this tutorial I’ll show you how you can get started Spring boot 2.0.

In my last few tutorials, I’ve covered some aspects that are really important with microservice, such as a discovery service like Eureka and a circuit breaker like Hystrix. Another thing that might be useful when working with microservices is to provide your application configuration as a microservice as well.
Recently I wrote some articles about the various Netflix components and how they fit into a microservice architecture. In this article I will talk about the next component that is usable with Spring boot and that’s Hystrix.
In my last article I gave a basic introduction into the concepts of a service oriented architecture (SOA) and microservices. I also made a small example about a service registry and how Netflix is involved into microservices with tools like Eureka. However, the story was quite unfinished, since we only made it possible for microservices […]
A while back I wrote a simple REST service with Spring boot. While this is quite common, we’re also seeing the word “microservice” pop up more often as well. But what is a microservice and what does Netflix has to do with it and more specifically, what is Eureka? Well, in this article I will […]
Caching is a very common operation when developing applications. Spring made a neat abstraction layer on top of the different caching providers (Ehcache, Caffeine, Guava, GemFire, …). In this article I will demonstrate how the cache abstraction works using Ehcache as the actual cache implementation.
In my latest tutorial I documented a simple REST API with Swagger and Springfox. While this approach certainly showed how valuable documenting your REST API can be, we aren’t really “done” yet. In the great world of SOA we know something like “contract first development”, in which we initially describe the web service (using WSDL) […]
In my last tutorial I built a REST service together with a REST client. Like I said before, REST services are pretty great to allow reuse of your operations, however, to become reusable, you’ll have to properly document the available endpoints in your REST API, which endpoints there are, what they can do, what they […]
In the last tutorial we created a small REST API. So now that the “producing REST API” step is completed, it’s time to start consuming it in another Spring boot project. Last time we’ve already set up a module for this project, called spring-boot-rest-client.
In the past couple of weeks I’ve written a few simple applications using Spring boot. With Spring MVC it’s also quite easy to serve REST API’s. In this article I’ll show you how to create such a REST API and how to consume one using RestTemplate.
