Exercise 1

We currently have a monolithic application called main-application it is using angular routing to load in a checkout page. We want to make a new checkout service which has a different view and different logic. It should be possible to deploy the services separate from each other. In this exercise we are going to integrate the new service using angular templates which are ajax'ed by angular by default.

A load balancer/reverse proxy has to be configured to ensure both service run on the same port. Load balancers can do url rewriting as well.

  1. Run npm install in main-application/ and proxy/
  2. Run npm start in main-application
  3. Browse to the clientside checkout tab on localhost:3000
  4. Create a server serving an angular controller and a template (tip: look at the default placeholder, use nws to make a simple web server: npm install -g nws)
  5. Edit proxy/index.js to ensure both application are running on the same port. It might be needed to do url rewriting.
  6. Run the proxy with npm start in proxy/ NOTE that the server will reload automatically when index.js is changed.
  7. See the results on localhost:5000
  8. (optional) update the load balancer to load in a service from a different participant.

Exercise 3

We realised that we need to integrate the checkout page using server side integration. We are going to use compoxure to do this.

  1. Add a compoxure include statement on the serverside checkout page at './main-application/app/checkout-server/checkout.html'
  2. Configure compoxure in compoxure-server/config.json
  3. Make sure redis is running
  4. Start compoxure by running npm start in compoxure-server/.
  5. See the results on localhost:5000
  6. (optional) update the include tag to load in a service from a different participant.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
