This is the final of a series of 3 articles dedicated to the MicroProfile Fault Tolerance. We started by introducing and giving an overview of the specification in “MicroProfile Fault Tolerance, Take 2”. Next, we explained the different annotations and their options in “MicroProfile Fault Tolerance Annotations”.
In our last article about Microprofile Fault Tolerance we explained the motivation for this project and the need to provide a few design patterns under the microservice friendly Microprofile spec, namely:
- Bulkhead – isolate failures in part of the system.
- Circuit breaker – offer a way to fail fast.
- Retry – define criteria on when to retry.
- Fallback – provide an alternative solution for a failed execution.
