Java Spring Microservice course introduces you to the Microservices architecture. You will learn to use Spring technologies to build scalable, fault tolerant, and secure microservices. This course will also help you to develop a microservice mindset which focuses on building small, self-contained, and ready to run applications. As part of the course, you will learn Spring Boot, Spring Data, REST, JSON, ORM tools like Hibernate, Spring Cloud which offers service discovery, load-balancing, circuit breaking, distributed tracing, API gateway, and monitoring. You will learn how to develop an event-driven system which consumes and produces events from your microservices in real-time.

You will learn how to build REST interfaces and create repositories, DTOs, services, and controllers. You will use Spring Cloud Config to implement centralized versioned configuration and learn about dynamic configuration updates with Spring Cloud Bus. This course will also cover the deployment cycle, CICD pipeline, docker, and Kubernetes. You will get familiar with the best practices and use the development paradigm used in the industry. This will prepare you very well for your next job as Java Microservices Developer or Java Backend Developer.

Technologies Covered

Spring Boot: Spring Boot is an open-source Java-based framework widely known to create Microservices. It simplifies the creation of stand-alone, production-grade, ready to run Applications with minimal efforts.

Spring Cloud: Spring Cloud provides tools to build some of the common patterns like configuration management, service discovery, circuit breakers, intelligent routing, micro-proxy, control bus, one-time tokens, global locks, leadership election, distributed sessions, and cluster state in distributed systems.

Spring Cloud Security: Spring Cloud Security provides necessary functionality to build secure applications and services with minimum hassle. Spring Cloud Security can be configured externally or centrally. This helps to build large scale complex applications with remote components. With Spring Cloud Security, you can easily implement common patterns like single sign on, token relay and token exchange.

Docker: Docker enables to develop, ship, and run applications with minimal efforts. It allows us to separate our applications from our infrastructure which help in speeding up the software delivery. Docker helps to package and run an application in a loosely isolated environment called a container. We can run many containers simultaneously on a single host. Containers are lightweight and contain necessary configurations and libraries to run the application. We can easily share containers which can run on any server.

Kubernetes: Kubernetes is an open-source platform which help us managing containerized workloads and services. Kubernetes is portable and extensible which simplifies both declarative configuration and automation.

Job Guarantee (Optional Add-on Programs)

Job Guarantee is an add-on program you can register with this course. You will need to clear an assessment interview to get enrolled. Once successful in the assessment, you will be offered Job Guarantee with this certificate course. There is a fee to join this program as it takes you to rigorous career development, interview preparation, mock interviews, etc. The fee for joining the Job Guarantee add-on program is £500. This is a 12 months program which starts at the end of your certificate course. As part of this program, we represent you to the prospective employers and train on career development elements You need to abide by the rules of this program which you can find on the Job Guarantee page. If we can’t find you a relevant job or you don’t find it by yourself in the similar industry in any part of the world within these 12 months, we will refund you the course fee + Job Guarantee program fee. The refund process will start after the end of the 12 months and every month we will pay £500 until the entire fee is paid back.

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
