Azure Spring Apps training

You will find here a full workshop on Azure Spring Apps, including guides and demos. You can run this workshop with the monthly free grant from Azure Spring Apps. Learn More

This lab is open-source, and under the MIT license. All Contributions are more then welcome! Learn more at contribution guidelines.

What you should expect

This is not the official documentation but an opinionated training.

It is a hands-on training, and it will use the command line extensively. The idea is to get coding very quickly and play with the platform, from a simple demo to far more complex examples.

After completing all the guides, you should have a fairly good understanding of everything that Azure Spring Apps offers.


🛑 - Manual Modification Required. When this symbol appears in front of one or more commands, you will need to modify the commands as indicated prior to running them.

🚧 - Preview-specific. This symbol indicates steps that are only necessary while Azure Spring Apps is in preview.

💡 - Frustration Avoidance Tip. These will help you avoid potential pitfalls.

Prerequisites and environment setup.

Basics on creating a cluster and configuring the CLI to work efficiently.

Build the simplest possible Spring Boot microservice using the Spring Initializr.

Access Spring Boot applications logs to understand common issues.

Configure a Spring Cloud Config Server, that will be entirely managed and supported by Azure Spring Apps, to be used by Spring Boot microservices.

Build a Spring Boot microservice that is cloud-enabled: it uses a Spring Cloud Service Registry and a Spring Cloud Config Server which are both managed and supported by Azure Spring Apps.

Build a reactive Spring Boot microservice, that uses the Spring reactive stack and is bound to a Cosmos DB database in order to access a globally-distributed database with optimum performance.

Build a classical Spring Boot application that uses JPA to access a MySQL database managed by Azure.

Build a Spring Cloud Gateway to route HTTP requests to the correct Spring Boot microservices.

Use a front-end to access graphically our complete microservice stack. Monitor our services with Azure Spring Apps's distributed tracing mechanism and scale our services depending on our needs.

Deploy new versions of applications in a staging environment and switch between staging and production with Azure Spring Apps.

Configure a Continuous Integration / Continuous Deployment platform using GitHub Actions, so our Spring Boot microservices are automatically deployed.

Creating a microservice that talks to other microservices.
