Designing Hexagonal Architecture with Java, 2nd Edition: Learn to build robust, resilient, and highly maintainable cloud-native Java applications with hexagonal architecture and Quarkus
We live in a fast-evolving world with new technologies emerging every day, where enterprises are constantly changing in an unending quest to be more profitable. So, the question arises how to develop software capable of handling a high level of unpredictability. With this question in mind, this Designing Hexagonal Architecture with Java, Second Edition book explores how the hexagonal architecture can help build robust, change-tolerable, maintainable, and cloud-native applications that can meet the needs of enterprises seeking to increase their profits while dealing with uncertainties.
This book starts by uncovering the secrets of the hexagonal architecture’s building blocks, such as entities, use cases, ports, and adapters. You’ll learn how to assemble business code in the domain hexagon, create features with ports and use cases in the application hexagon, and make your software compatible with different technologies by employing adapters in the framework hexagon. In this new edition, you’ll learn about the differences between a hexagonal and layered architecture and how to apply SOLID principles while developing a hexagonal system based on a real-world scenario. Finally, you’ll get to grips with using Quarkus to turn your hexagonal application into a cloud-native system.
- Apply SOLID principles to the hexagonal architecture
- Assemble business rules algorithms using the specified design pattern
- Combine domain-driven design techniques with hexagonal principles to create powerful domain models
- Employ adapters to enable system compatibility with various protocols such as REST, gRPC, and WebSocket
- Create a module and package structure based on hexagonal principles
- Use Java modules to enforce dependency inversion and ensure software component isolation
- Implement Quarkus DI to manage the life cycle of input and output ports
By the end of this Designing Hexagonal Architecture with Java, 2nd Edition book, you’ll be able to develop robust, flexible, and maintainable systems that will stand the test of time.
