In this Spring boot actuator tutorial, learn about inbuilt HTTP endpoints available to any boot application for different monitoring and management purpose.
Learn to consume SOAP webservices using spring’s WebServiceTemplate and auto client proxy class generation using JAXB maven plugin. Creating a SOAP webservice is out of scope of this tutorial, but you may learn it here.
In this tutorial, learn to create and consume RSS and Atom feed from spring boot application. You must have seen this in form of text or image buttons on various websites (like our RSS feed) inviting you to “Subscribe via RSS.” RSS is simple syndication API – often referred as Rich Site Summary. RSS revolutionized […]
In this spring boot soap tutorial, we will focus only in the Spring boot related configurations to see how easily we can create our contract first SOAP webservice.
In this spring boot example, learn to configure web application to run on SSL (HTTPS) with self-signed certificate. Also learn to create SSL cert, as well.
Zipkin is very efficient tool for distributed tracing in microservices ecosystem. Distributed tracing, in general, is latency measurement of each component in a distributed transaction where multiple microservices are invoked to serve a single business usecase. Let’s say from our application, we have to call 4 different services/components for a transaction. Here with distributed tracing […]
Learn to create load balancer using Netflix Zuul and its solid bonding with Spring Cloud. Here we will mainly concentrate on API gateway pattern and it’s usage. We will build a demo where we will create a microservice ecosystem and test its effectiveness and applicability of Zuul API gateway in the whole ecosystem.
Learn to create Microservices, based on Spring cloud, registering on HashiCorp Consul registry server and how other microservices (discovery clients) use it to register and discover services to call their APIs.
Learn to leverage the one of the Spring cloud Netflix stack component called Hystrix to implement circuit breaker while invoking underlying microservice. It is generally required to enable fault tolerance in the application where some underlying service is down/throwing error permanently, we need to fall back to different path of program execution automatically. This is […]

Learn to deploy and host spring boot applications into Pivotal Cloud Foundry Web Services Platform (PWS) and access REST endpoint from local workstation.
Learn to create microservice, based on Spring cloud, which act as Netflix Eureka registry server and how other microservices (Eureka clients) use it to register and discover services.
Learn to configure Spring boot application with embedded ActiveMQ for sending and receiving JMS messages with help of JMSTemplate.
Config server is where all configurable parameters of microservices are written are maintained. It is more like externalizing properties / resource file out of project codebase to an external service altogether, so that any changes to that property does not necessitate the deployment of service which is using the property. All such property changes will be reflected without redeploying the microservice.
PropertyEditor is originally part of the JavaBeans specification. Spring also heavily uses the PropertyEditors to be able to represent properties in a different way than the object itself e.g. parsing human readable inputs from http request params or displaying human readable values of pure java objects in view layer. Spring has a number of built-in […]
To schedule job in spring boot application to run periodically, spring boot provides @EnableScheduling and @Scheduled annotations. Lets learn to use them. Let’s say you want to run job at every 10 seconds interval. You can achieve this job scheduling in below steps: 1) @EnableScheduling to Spring Boot Application class Add @EnableScheduling annotation to your […]
Spring boot’s CommandLineRunner interface is used to run a code block only once in application’s lifetime – after application is initialized. How to use CommandLineRunner You can use CommandLineRunner interface in three ways: 1) Using @Component over CommandLineRunner implementation class This one is fairly easy. 2) Implement CommandLineRunner in SpringBootWebApplication itself This is also possible. […]
Spring boot loads lots of beans internally to run your application with minimal configuration. In this example, we will learn to find out all those spring boot loaded beans and their class type information. Using ApplicationContext to get all loaded beans To execute a method automatically, when application is fully loaded, I am using CommandLineRunner […]
