Good morning, John,

I have finished reading your book and now I am working through the examples. It is concise, straight to the point and hugely informative. I loved it.

One things that which was not included in the book (which is understandable due to the size of the subject) is levels of testing, and best approaches for testing microservices.

Ideally, I would like to know more how to apply TDD and BDD to microservices, and what tools Spring framework has to offer.
I appreciate that this is outside the scope of the book. However, if you could point us in the right direction, to some online material, and/or course, that would be grand.

For any microservices/docker newbie like myself, I recommend this udemy Docker - Hands On for Java Developers course. It really helps to put docker in the big picture of microservices, and vice-versa.

Thanks in advance,
Lucas

My colleague at ThoughtWorks authored the Manning book "Testing Microservices with Mountebank" that has just been released. I highly recommend it. The focus on the book is a form of testing called wire mocking, in which the Mountebank servers as a mock process providing your other service dependencies, and contract driven testing which is essential to quick delivery of microservices.
