Scala Microservices

Jatin Puri, Engineer and Programming Language Enthusiast

Selvam Palanimalai, Production Engineer

Audience: Developers and Architects

Technical level: Beginning-Intermediate

We learn to build highly performant applications using Play Framework. You will understand the importance of writing code that is asynchronous and nonblocking and how Play leverages this paradigm for higher throughput. The book introduces Reactive Manifesto and uses Lagom Framework to implement the suggested paradigms. Lagom teaches us to: build applications that are scalable and resilient to failures, and solves problems faced with microservices like service gateway, service discovery, communication and so on. Message Passing is used as a means to achieve resilience and CQRS with Event Sourcing helps us in modelling data for highly interactive applications.

The book also shares effective development processes for large teams by using good version control workflow, continuous integration and deployment strategies. We introduce Docker containers and Kubernetes orchestrator. Finally, we look at end to end deployment of a set of scala microservices in kubernetes with load balancing, service discovery and rolling deployments.
