Microservices for the Masses with Spring Boot, JHipster, and JWT - J-Spring 2017

Microservices for the Masses with Spring Boot, JHipster, and JWT - J-Spring 2017

Microservices are all the rage and being deployed by many Java Hipsters. If you’re working on a large team that needs different release cycles for product components, microservices can be a blessing. If you’re working at your VW Restoration Shop and running its online store with your own software, having five services to manage and deploy can be a real pain. Share your knowledge and experience about microservices in this informative and code-heavy talk.

We’ll use JHipster (a Yeoman generator) to create Angular + Spring Boot apps on separate instances with a unified front-end. I’ll also show you options for securing your API gateway and individual applications using JWT. Docker, ELK, Spring Cloud, Okta; there will be plenty of interesting demos to see!

  8. The Future?

  9. You shouldn’t start with a microservices architecture. Instead begin with

    a monolith, keep it modular, and split it into microservices once the monolith becomes a problem. Martin Fowler March 2014

  22. Securing Your API Choose the Right API Security Protocol Basic

    API Authentication with TLS (aka SSL) OAuth 1.0a, OAuth 2.0, OpenID Connect API Keys vs. Username/Password Authentication Store Your API Security Key securely Use globally unique IDs (e.g. Url62) Avoid sessions, especially in URLs
  23. JSON Web Tokens

  24. Create a JWT in Java String jwt = Jwts.builder() .setSubject("users/TzMUocMF4p")

    .setExpiration(new Date(1300819380)) .claim("name", "Robert Token Man") .claim("scope", "self groups/admins") .signWith( SignatureAlgorithm.HS256, "secret".getBytes("UTF-8") ) .compact();
  25. Validating a JWT String jwt = // get JWT from

    Authorization header Jws<Claims> claims = Jwts.parser() .setSigningKey("secret".getBytes("UTF-8")) .parseClaimsJws(jwt) String scope = claims.getBody().get("scope") assertEquals(scope, "self groups/admins");
  26. Better Secret String b64EncodedSecret = "Yn2kjibddFAWtnPJ2AFlL8WXmohJMCvigQggaEypa5E="; .signWith(SignatureAlgorithm.HS256, TextCodec.BASE64.decode(b64EncodedSecret))
