Red Hat OpenShift Development II: Creating Microservices with Red Hat OpenShift Application Runtimes (DO292) – CZ

Overview

Course description

Developing microservices using Red Hat OpenShift Application Runtimes

Red Hat OpenShift Development II: Creating Microservices with Red Hat OpenShift Application Runtimes (DO292) introduces you to three runtimes: WildFly Swarm, Vert.x, and Spring Boot. This course is an intensive, hands-on programming experience in which you will develop multiple microservices using the three runtimes and deploy them on a Red Hat® OpenShift Container Platform cluster.

This course is based on Red Hat® Enterprise Linux 7.5 and OpenShift Container Platform 3.9.

Like members of many organizations, you may be interested in or are already employing microservice architectures. We have introduced solutions to ease the on-ramp for the creation and deployment of microservices through its developer programs and Red Hat® OpenShift Application Runtimes.

Course summary

  • Deploy microservices with WildFly Swarm.
  • Deploy microservices with Vert.x.
  • Deploy microservices with Spring Boot.
  • Develop an API gateway.
  • Implement fault tolerance with Hystrix.
