Today is the big day 🥳🥳 My third book “Playing with Java Microservices with Quarkus and Kubernetes” is available in Early Access 🎉🎊🎈✨
I started working on the book starting from June 😁 I spent nearly 5 months presenting the most interesting and powerful features of the Quarkus Framework. When I started the Proof-of-concept, I didn’t have the idea of writing a book on Quarkus, I was just discovering. I found myself spending more and more time reading the documentation, trying some features and extensions, and then I got the idea to write the Quarkus version of my “Playing with Java Microservices” Book 😁
The content of book:
- Chapter 0: Getting started with Containerization, presents the containerization with Docker & Podman.
- Chapter 1: Introduction to the Monolithic architecture, provides an introduction to the Monolithic architecture with a focus on its advantages and drawbacks.
- Chapter 2: Coding the Monolithic application, offers a step-by-step tutorial for modeling and creating the monolith using Maven, Java 11 & Quarkus.
- Chapter 3: Upgrading the Monolithic application, lists some upgrades for our Monolithic application such as adding tests and most-wanted features.
- Chapter 4: Building & Deploying the Monolithic application, covers how to build and package our example application before showing how to deploy it in the runtime environment.
- Chapter 5: Adding the anti-disasters layers, introduces how to implement the Security and Monitoring layers to help the application to avoid disasters.
- Chapter 6: Microservices Architecture Pattern, presents the drawbacks that can be faced in a typical Monolithic architecture and shows the motivations for seeking something new, like the Microservices Architecture Pattern.
- Chapter 7: Splitting the Monolith: Bombarding the domain, presents the Domain Driven Design concepts to successfully understand the Business Domain of the Monolithic Application, to be able to split it into sub-domains.
- Chapter 8: Applying DDD to the code, shows how to apply all the DDD concepts to the Monolithic Application source code and to successfully split the monolith into Bounded Contexts.
- Chapter 9: Meeting the microservices concerns and patterns, covers a deep presentation of the concerns and the cloud patterns related to the Microservices Architecture Pattern.
- Chapter 10: Getting started with Kubernetes, covers how to build our real standalone business microservices.
- Chapter 11: Implementing the Cloud Patterns, presents in deep the greatest container orchestrator: Kubernetes
- Chapter 12: Building the Kubernetized Microservices, shows how to migrate the monolith code to build microservices while applying Kubernetes concepts and features.
- Chapter 13: Flying all over the Sky with Quarkus and Kubernetes will introduce you to how implement additional cloud patterns using Quarkus and Kubernetes.
The remaining chapters:
- Chapter 14: Playing with Quarkus in Azure shows how Microsoft Azure can help you to modernize applications faster and how you can use Serverless Architecture to add additional great features.
- Chapter 15: Bringing Dapr into the game presents Dapr & covers how a Distributed Application Runtime can improve a microservices architecture.
- and more 😁
I made the book available under Early Access because I didn’t finish the Azure part: where I will be covering many great Azure services useful to boost the efficiency of my Quarkus microservices. I will also cover more topics and tools that I see that can be a great add-on to the actual content. The eBook version of the book will be continuously updated. Stay tuned 😎
