Learn to build a full-fledged application in Spring and Kotlin taking a reactive, microservice-based approach for scalability and robustness in the cloud

Key Features

  • Build a full-fledged application in Spring and Kotlin
  • Architect your application to take a microservice-based approach in the cloud
  • Integrate your application with a variety of Spring components

Book Description

Kotlin is being used widely by developers because of its light weight, built-in null safety, and functional and reactive programming aspects. Kotlin shares the same pragmatic, innovative and opinionated mindset as Spring, so they work well together. Spring when combined with Kotlin helps you to reach a new level of productivity. This combination has helped developers to create Functional Applications using both the tools together. This book will teach you how to take advantage of these developments and build robust, scalable and reactive applications with ease.

In this book, you will begin with an introduction to Spring and its setup with Kotlin. You will then dive into assessing the design considerations of your application. Then you will learn to use Spring (with Spring Boot) along with Kotlin to build a robust backend in a microservice architecture with a REST based collaboration, and leverage Project Reactor in your application. You’ll then learn how to integrate Spring Data and Spring Cloud to manage configurations for database interaction and cloud deployment. You’ll also learn to use Spring Security to beef up security of your application before testing it with the JUnit framework and then deploying it on a cloud platform like AWS.

What you will learn

  • Explore Spring 5 concepts with Kotlin
  • Learn both dependency injections and complex configurations
  • Utilize Spring Data, Spring Cloud, and Spring Security in your applications
  • Create efficient reactive systems with Project Reactor
  • Write unit tests for your Spring/Kotlin applications
  • Deploy applications on cloud platforms like AWS

Who this book is for
