Thank you for purchasing the MEAP for Spring Microservices in Action. I hope you find this second edition useful for your professional development and enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed writing it.
As software developers, we sit in the middle of a sea of chaos and change. Sometimes, just when we think we have achieved the best solution for our problem, some new technologies and approaches appear on the scene, causing us to reevaluate how we deliver solutions for our customers. Microservices is a perfect example of this. When the microservices concept crept into the software development community around 2014, it made us realize that we did not have everything under control with the architectures implemented at that time, and that we had to migrate to something more flexible and innovative.
