This book is aimed more at designers than developers, but I believe
that good developers must understand how to design things as well as
code so I think this is a book you can benefit from. On the other
hand, you should know this is not a hard-code technical book with UML
diagrams and source code; if that’s what you’re looking for you won’t
find it here.

What you will find is a book that makes you think about how fast and
often our world is changing, and how we can successfully address the
opportunities that such rapid change offers instead of being left

If you’re interested in more detail, I’ve posted a review in DZone’s
IT Book Zone, or ask me about it at next month’s AJUG meeting.

Data Microservices with Spring Cloud Stream, Task, and Data Flow

Tuesday, July 19, 2016

Microservice based architectures are not just for distributed web applications! They are also a powerful approach for creating distributed stream and batch processing.

Spring Cloud Data Flow enables you to create and orchestrate standalone executable applications that communicate over messaging middleware such as Kafka and RabbitMQ that when run together, form a distributed stream processing application. It also allows users to create and orchestrate short lived microservices like batch jobs or boot applications that perform a task and then terminate when complete.

This allows you to scale, version and operationalize stream processing and task applications following microservice based patterns and practices on a variety of runtime platforms such as Cloud Foundry, Apache YARN and others.
