Build and deliver production-grade cloud native applications with Spring Boot and Kubernetes.
The cover of my book "Cloud Native Spring in Action - With Spring Boot and Kubernetes". Published by Manning. Foreword by Josh Long.

Cloud Native Spring in Action is a practical guide to building applications that are designed for cloud environments. You'll learn effective Spring and Kubernetes cloud development techniques that you can immediately apply to enterprise-grade applications.

Follow a detailed and complete cloud native system from first concept right through to production and deployment, learning best practices, design patterns, and little-known tips and tricks for pain-free cloud native development. Including coverage of security, continuous delivery, and configuration, this hands-on guide is the perfect primer for navigating the increasingly complex cloud landscape.

In Cloud Native Spring in Action you'll learn:

  • Cloud native best practices and design patterns
  • Build and test cloud native apps with Spring Boot and Spring Cloud
  • Handle security, resilience, and scalability in imperative and reactive applications
  • Configure, deploy, and observe applications on Kubernetes
  • Continuous delivery and GitOps to streamline your software lifecycle

The book is divided into four parts. Part 1 will guide you through the cloud native landscape, defining what it means for an application to be cloud native, and establishing tools, technologies, and patterns you’ll bring on your journey.

Part 2 will get you started with the fundamentals of cloud native development. You’ll work with RESTful Spring application services and data persistence, understand how to manage configuration across environments, define automation for your continuous integration process, learn how the Docker containerization works, and finally deploy your apps to a local Kubernetes cluster.

In Part 3, your journey gets to a whole new level. You’ll move from a single app to a distributed system in the cloud. You’ll learn about service discovery, load balancing, scalability, and resilience. You’ll then explore the features of event-driven architecture and secure your system with authentication, authorization, and encryption.

In Part 4, you’ll ensure the observability of your applications, dealing with logging, tracing, and monitoring. Finally, you’ll get to the long wished for destination: production. You’ll learn how to deploy your application to a Kubernetes cluster in a public cloud, and automate the delivery and deployment process. A new journey starts in production. You’ll get familiar with the next steps in your cloud native adventure and learn some tips on migrating your existing applications.
