contact-microservice

Microservices per definition implement a single business feature. This microservice enables emails to be sent using Java Mail through a REST API per JSON. Therefore emails can be sent from any programming language through this REST API and microservice. The service supports SSL.

How to use

  1. To use the microservice you need to specify the user specific configuration parameters in application.properties and application-production.properties.
  2. Create an executable jar using mvn clean install.
  3. Run the jar (for example in production mode): java -Dspring.profiles.active=production -jar contact-microservice.jar

How to integrate the contact microservice with your website

  • Option 1: The contact microservice comes with a small simple HTML form which can be directly integrated into your website. This form is available by calling the contact microservice with the URL https://your-domain/contact-microservice/
  • Option 2: You can integrate the contact microservice using JavaScript. A simple JavaScript for the contact microservice would look like this

var contactRequest = {}; contactRequest.name = document.forms[0][0].value; contactRequest.emailAddress = document.forms[0][1].value; contactRequest.website = document.forms[0][2].value; contactRequest.message = document.forms[0][3].value; $.ajax({ url: "https://your-domain/contact-microservice/sendEmail", method: "POST", contentType: "application/json", data: JSON.stringify(contactRequest) });

Available Profiles

  • dev - This profile sets the Log level to INFO and only allows 2 e-mails (per default) to be sent before the service has to be restarted. This works well for development and testing.
  • production - This profile sets the Log Level to WARN, uses SSL per default and allow 100 e-mails per day to be sent.
  • test - This profile uses a built-in SMTP Server and is only suitable for JUnit tests.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
