In previous post we registered the employee-producer to Eureka Service. This post we do service discovery using the employee-consumer module.

This tutorial is explained in the below Youtube Video.

Lets Begin-

  • Develop the Eureka server Service as follows-

    The maven project we will be creating is as follows-
    The pom.xml with spring cloud dependencies is as follows-
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"

    	<build>

    			</plugin>
    		</plugins>
    	</build>
    
    
    </project>
    
    Define the Spring Boot class with annotations @SpringBootApplication and @EnableEurekaServer.
    package com.javainuse;
    
    import org.springframework.boot.SpringApplication;
    import org.springframework.boot.autoconfigure.SpringBootApplication;
    import org.springframework.cloud.netflix.eureka.server.EnableEurekaServer;
    
    @SpringBootApplication
    @EnableEurekaServer
    public class EurekaServerApplication {
    
    	public static void main(String[] args) {
    		SpringApplication.run(EurekaServerApplication.class, args);
    	}
    }
    

    Finally specify the port on which the eureka application will get started -
    Next define the batch configuration for creating the tasklet as follows-
    server.port=8090
    

    Run this as java application. Go to URL-
    http://localhost:8090/
    We can see the Eureka Server page as follows-
  • Next we modify the employee-producer module we defined previously to register to the Eureka server.

    Add the Spring cloud dependencies to the pom.xml as follows-

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
    	xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/xsd/maven-4.0.0.xsd">

    		<version>1.4.1.RELEASE</version>
    		<relativePath /> <!-- lookup parent from repository -->
    	</parent>
    
    	<properties>
    		<project.build.sourceEncoding>UTF-8</project.build.sourceEncoding>
    		<project.reporting.outputEncoding>UTF-8</project.reporting.outputEncoding>
    		<java.version>1.8</java.version>
    	</properties>
    
    	<dependencies>
    		<dependency>
    			<groupId>org.springframework.boot</groupId>
    			<artifactId>spring-boot-starter-web</artifactId>
    		</dependency>
    
    		<dependency>
    			<groupId>org.springframework.cloud</groupId>
    			<artifactId>spring-cloud-starter-eureka</artifactId>
    		</dependency>
    
    		<dependency>
    			<groupId>org.springframework.boot</groupId>
    			<artifactId>spring-boot-starter-test</artifactId>
    			<scope>test</scope>
    		</dependency>
    
    	</dependencies>
    
    	<dependencyManagement>
    		<dependencies>
    			<dependency>
    				<groupId>org.springframework.cloud</groupId>
    				<artifactId>spring-cloud-dependencies</artifactId>
    				<version>Camden.SR6</version>
    				<type>pom</type>
    				<scope>import</scope>
    			</dependency>
    		</dependencies>
    	</dependencyManagement>
    
    
    	<build>
    		<plugins>
    			<plugin>
    				<groupId>org.springframework.boot</groupId>
    				<artifactId>spring-boot-maven-plugin</artifactId>
    			</plugin>
    		</plugins>
    	</build>
    
    </project>
    
    Next define the Spring Boot class with annotations @SpringBootApplication and @EnableDiscoveryClient.
    package com.javainuse;
    
    import org.springframework.boot.SpringApplication;
    import org.springframework.boot.autoconfigure.SpringBootApplication;
    import org.springframework.cloud.client.discovery.EnableDiscoveryClient;
    
    @SpringBootApplication
    @EnableDiscoveryClient
    public class SpringBootHelloWorldApplication {
    
    	public static void main(String[] args) {
    		SpringApplication.run(SpringBootHelloWorldApplication.class, args);
    	}
    }
    

    In the application.properties specify the url on which the Eureka server is up and running.
    eureka.client.serviceUrl.defaultZone=http://localhost:8090/eureka
    

    Now start this employee-producer by running this as a Java Application and go to url.
    http://localhost:8090/
    We can see the Eureka Server page with the employee-producer module registered as follows-
    We can see here that the registered application name is coming as UNKNOWN. To change this create in resources a file named bootstrap.properties
    spring.application.name=employee-producer
    
    We can now see the sevice registered as-
