The ephemeral nature of microservices and their containers poses challanges for storing application state. In this article we look at using an object-store (Minio) and demonstrate how we can access it from a Spring-Boot service. We start by deploying a Docker-ized instance ofMinIO as our Spring-Boot object-store and then deploy the MinIO Kubernetes operator using Krew in a MicroK8s instance.


Message-Driven architectures need a messaging platform. In this article, we introduce NATS Messaging, discuss its supported messaging patterns, demonstrate how to scale NATS using clustering, and implement three Spring Boot services to demonstrate NATS client integration.
