Play 2.4.X : Microservice Architecture using Play and Scala

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

How To Implement logRequestResponse in Spray

Spray has the feature to log request and response of every route through logRequestResponse. We needn’t to add log in each route because it could be done from a single place. This also helps to maintain clean code. Please see below example:- class HubServices extends Actor with HubRoutes { def actorRefFactory: ActorContext = context // logs just the request method and response status at info Continue Reading

Testing Jersey Based REST Services with Grizzly

In my last post, we had seen how easy it was to create REST based services with Spring and Jersey. In this post we would quickly see how we can unit test them. Ok, this is not entirely a unit test in the strict sense because we are not testing the resource in isolation but it is a good strategy nevertheless because it helps us Continue Reading

Just REST, it’s Easy With Spring and Jersey
