Microservices

Wait! Don’t write your microservice … yet

Reading Time: 3 minutes Day one, we were super excited to start a new project for a huge financial institution. They seemed to know the domain and as Knoldus we understood the technology. The stakeholders were excited about the Reactive Paradigm and the client architects were all stoked up the way there would be microservices which would allow them all the benefits that other companies had been harping about.

Serverless Architecture-Blog-2 (AWS Lambda)

Reading Time: 3 minutes In our last blog, we have seen the serverless introduction, Continuing that in this blog we will implement serverless using AWS lambda. AWS Lambda is a compute service that lets you run code without provisioning or managing servers. AWS Lambda executes your code only when needed and scales automatically, from a few requests per day to thousands per second.

Serverless Architecture – Blog-1

Reading Time: 2 minutes What is Serverless computing? The “serverless” bit doesn’t actually mean that there are no servers required to run the new feature. It just means that we don’t have to deal with the infrastructure.That means we don’t have to worry about scaling, multi-server communication and other problems related to distributed systems. Lambdas do everything for us! Serverless can also mean applications where some amount of server-side Continue Reading

Lightbend Monitoring: Lagom

Reading Time: 3 minutes Lightbend Monitoring provides insight into applications built with Lightbend technologies. It does so by instrumentation of frameworks like Akka and Lagom. The instrumentation is done by a Java agent (called Cinnamon) that runs when your application is starting up. It collects information in runtime based on the configurations that you have provided. In this post, we would show the Circuit Breaker (CB) monitoring with Lagom. Continue Reading

Lagom Framework: The Legacy WordCount Example

Reading Time: 3 minutes What is Lagom? Lagom is an open source micro-service framework, built with Akka message-driven runtime and Play web framework and finally light bend service orchestration. Mixing all these technologies abstracts away the complexities of building, running, and managing microservice architectures. Lagom is a Swedish word meaning “just the right amount”. Often, when people talk about microservices, they focus on the micro part of the name, Continue Reading

Building Microservices Architecture Based Enterprise Applications in Java Using Lagom – Part I

Reading Time: 5 minutes As we know, now days, most of the enterprise applications design as a “Microservices Architecture” because of scalability, sharding, loosely-coupling and many others reasons are there. On the other hand  JavaEE help us for building an Enterprise Applications. As we know, Java help us for building a good applications, but with JavaEE monolithic approach our applications are not scalable as compare to microservices. That’s why, Continue Reading

And you thought you were doing Microservices

Reading Time: 5 minutes If you have been in the software industry for some time you would have heard things like. Yes we do Scrum but …we do not have timeboxed sprints. Yes, we write automated user acceptance tests but … as a part of the Sprint planning we decide whether we would write automated test for a story or do ad-hoc manual testing. Oh, and our test coverage Continue Reading

Play 2.4.X : Microservice Architecture using Play and Scala

Reading Time: < 1 minute Playing-Microservices This blog describes a basic Microservice architecture design using Play 2.4.X and Scala. The big idea behind microservices is to architect large, complex and long-lived applications as a set of cohesive services that evolve over time. The term microservices strongly suggests that the services should be small. In short, the microservice architectural style is an approach to developing a single application as a suite Continue Reading
