Spring Boot Microservices — Part4 — APIGW

In this tutorial I will implement the APIGW using Spring Cloud API Gateway.

application.properties

spring.cloud.gateway.discovery.locator.enabled

MainApp.java

package com.example;

import org.springframework.boot.SpringApplication;
import org.springframework.boot.autoconfigure.SpringBootApplication;
import org.springframework.cloud.netflix.eureka.EnableEurekaClient;

@SpringBootApplication
@EnableEurekaClient
public class ApiGatewayServiceApplication {

public static void main(String[] args) {
SpringApplication.run(ApiGatewayServiceApplication.class, args);
}

}

Start the api-gateway-service

POST — http://localhost:8080/api/product

GET — http://localhost:8080/api/product

It shows APIGW works fine!
