Manage your Kubernetes applications with Helm

Helm is a powerful tool which can help you manage your most complex applications running on Kubernetes. It works as a wrapper on the top of Kubernetes to manage applications. This is the best possible way to find, use and share the application built to run over Kubernetes. Helm is one of the incubating projects in CNCF family The latest version of Helm is maintained by the CNCF – Continue Reading

API Gateway – What’s in it for me?

PI (Application Programmable Interfaces) are the foundation for building your digital business, they are sets of routines, protocols, and tools for describing how software applications and components should interact with each other. They are the key driver in today’s economy for integrating with an ecosystem much larger than most companies can build on their own.

Digital Thinking – Top IT Pains

In the past few posts, we have talked about the forces and tools of Digital transformation and why enterprises should be concerned about it. In this post, let us look at a very recent survey done by Mulesoft which talks about the top IT pain points of 2019 Disconnected Systems – In a lot of enterprises, there is a plethora of legacy systems which have Continue Reading

Authentication and Authorization in Microservices

Microservices Architecture has been gaining a lot of ground as the preferred architecture for implementing solutions as it provides benefits like scalability, logical and physical separation, small teams managing a part of the functionality, flexibility in technology etc. But these benefits come at a cost of simplicity since microservices are distributed the complexity of managing them increases. One of the key challenges is how to Continue Reading

Microservices and the Saga Pattern

Microservices have become a crucial part of any enterprise these days, no matter if it is a big or a small enterprise. When something this big is present in the market why not see some fundamentals of the same? So here we’ll go through the concepts like what is a microservice and Saga Patterns that an ideal microservice should have.

Custom ErrorHandlers and Lagom

Hello everyone, it’s been quite a while now since I started working on Lagom(java) and it was only recently when I came across a scenario wherein I was required to override the ErrorHandler provided by Play in my Lagom microservice. As you all already know that Lagom is built on top of Play and Akka, so there will be times when we’ll be required to Continue Reading

“Why do you always choose Microservices over me?” said the Monolithic architecture

Ever wondered why do companies like Apple, eBay and Netflix care so much about microservices? What makes this simple architecture so special that it is being hyped so much? Is it worth the pain and efforts to shift an entire running application from monolithic to microservices architecture? Many such questions came to our minds when we started using the microservices in our projects. In this Continue Reading

APIGEE-EDGE: Playing With The Policies(Part1).

  Hi all, In one of my previous blogs, I discussed Apigee, what it is and why is it required? We also discussed the various features and benefits of having Apigee. We saw how to deploy a proxy through the code rather than the Apigee UI deployment feature and many more. So if you like you can go through the basics of Apigee here Getting started Continue Reading

Challenges to Monitoring a Fast Data Application

In the present landscape, the buzzword is “Fast Data” and it is nothing but data that is not at rest. And since the data is not a rest, the traditional techniques of working on the data that is rest are no longer efficient and relevant. The importance of streaming has grown, as it provides a competitive advantage that reduces the time gap between data arrival Continue Reading

Lagom and Immutability

What is Lagom? Lagom is not in disguise anymore. Everyone who’s following on micro-service architecture knows about Lagom framework. Lagom is an open source framework built with the shifting from monoliths to micro-services-driven application architecture in mind. It abstracts the complexity of building, running and monitoring micro-services driven applications. The Lagom framework includes Java and Scala APIs to simplify development of microservices. Lagom helps us Continue Reading

Let’s Consume a Micro-service

Micro-services architecture is being widely adopted and guess what, Lagom is the most efficient way to achieve it.  While creating micro-services, we usually need to interact with other micro-services and consume their data. So the idea behind this blog is to guide you through the steps needed to integrate an unmanaged service. Apparently, Integrating an external API in Lagom is challenging at first but it Continue Reading

Lagom: Getting to Know

JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT Lagom- [lah-gome], a swedish word meaning ‘Sufficient’ or ‘Just the right amount’. The meaning of the name ‘Microservice’ is misunderstood by a majority of people. Taking it litrelly Micro = very small i.e. very small service is not the underlying meaning or agenda of creating Microservices. The real theme here does not revolves around the ‘size’ criteria. What really matters here is the Continue Reading

Integrating Play app with Lagom application

What is Lagom? Simply put, it is a microservices tool. Lagom is a microservices framework that guides developers in moving from monolithic to a scalable, resilient microservice based systems. It is a platform delivering you not only the microservice framework but also a whole tool set for developing applications along with creating, managing and monitoring your services. According to Lightbend the focus should not be Continue Reading
