AWS Lambda is a great technology to get your code up and running in a matter of minutes. I’m heavily using AWS Lambda for various automation and marketing tasks for this blog and my online courses. I recently gave Spring Cloud Function with Kotlin for AWS Lambda a try. It’s a powerful combination if you’re
With one of the previous blog posts, we configured a Thymeleaf Spring Boot application for an OAuth 2 Login with Spring Security and AWS Cognito. While this article focussed on the setup and login mechanism, the logout functionality was only half-way implemented. Our end-users are still logged in at the identity provider. Let’s adjust the
My original plan was to demo the container image support of AWS Lambda with a Java example that uses Selenium to scrape web pages. For Python and Node.js, there are a lot of examples available on the internet. I failed to get Chrome running for a Java AWS Lambda function with a custom Docker image.
Securing your frontend application with a login and managing a user pool is something you can either write for yourself or use an external identity provider for. If you want to move fast with your prototype you usually pick the second option and search for an OpenID Connect (OIDC) and OAuth2 compliant identity provider. AWS
With this blog post, you’ll learn how to use the Serverless framework to develop AWS Lambda functions using Java and Maven. To provide you with a realistic use case, we’ll develop an AWS Lambda that will generate a thumbnail for each new image that we upload to an S3 bucket. AWS Account Setup for Serverless
If your Spring Boot application integrates AWS services like S3, SNS, or SQS, you might wonder how to write effective integration tests. Should I mock the entire interaction with AWS? Should I duplicate the AWS infrastructure for testing? Can I somehow start a local AWS clone for testing purposes? With this blog post, you’ll learn
If you are familiar with the AWS services landscape, you might already know the Parameter Store (part of the AWS System Manager, in short, SSM). This service allows us to store parameters for our application as a String, StringList or SecureString (encrypted using KMS keys). We can use this AWS service to configure both plain
