Developing and Managing Java-based Microservices with Kubernetes

Join this session to learn how to create a Java-based microservice using Spring Boot, containerize it using Maven plugins, and subsequently deploy a fleet of microservices onto a cluster of machines using Kubernetes.

Running a single microservice is fast and easy. Like most Java applications, the harder part is usually the clustering and fail-over configurations.

First, we’ll create a microservice using Spring Boot, and, subsequently, generate and create Docker images during the build process, and finally we’ll deploy the microservice into Kubernetes:

  • Defining pods and services
  • Perform rolling upgrades of the application
  • Canary new versions of the microservices into the fleet
  • Linking microservices to Redis using Kubernetes
  • Configure Health Check and Readiness Checks
  • Managing configurations via arguments, environmental variables, and ConfigMap

The best part is we can visualize all these activities happening in Kubernetes.
