Today, I would like to share with you the title of my new book: Playing with Java Microservices on Kubernetes and OpenShift.

I started working on it, since the January 2018.

Playing with Java Microservices on Kubernetes and OpenShift will teach you how to build and design microservices using Java and the Spring platform.

This book covers topics related to creating Java microservices and deploy them to Kubernetes and OpenShift.

Traditionally, Java developers have been used to developing large, complex monolithic applications. The experience of developing and deploying monoliths has been always slow and painful. This book will help Java developers to quickly get started with the features and the concerns of the microservices architecture. It will introduce Docker, Kubernetes and OpenShift to help them deploying their microservices.

The book is written for Java developers who wants to build microservices using the Spring Boot/Cloud stack and who wants to deploy them to Kubernetes and OpenShift.

You will be guided on how to install the appropriate tools to work properly. For those who are new to Enterprise Development using Spring Boot, you will be introduced to its core principles and main features thru a deep step-by-step tutorial on many components. For experts, this book offers some recipes that illustrate how to split monoliths and implement microservices and deploy them as containers to Kubernetes and OpenShift.

The following are some of the key challenges that we will address in this book:

  • Introducing Spring Boot/Cloud for beginners
  • Splitting a monolith using the Domain Driven Design approach
  • Implementing the cloud & microservices patterns
  • Rethinking the deployment process
  • Introducing containerization, Docker, Kubernetes and OpenShift

By the end of reading this book, you will have practical hands-on experience of building microservices using Spring Boot/Cloud and you will master deploying them as containers to Kubernetes and OpenShift.

This book will be published on Leanpub. I hope that it will be fully published by September 2018. I think of making an Early Access by the end of May 2018 :)

I hope that it will succeed as did my first one: Pairing Apache Shiro with Java EE 7
