Adding retries to your microservice application is a great way to make it more robust. In this course, Spring Retry: Getting Started, you will learn foundational knowledge of Spring Retry and how to implement it in your existing applications. First, you will see how to add retry to Spring’s venerable RestTemplate. Next, you will discover how to configure custom retry policies such as backoff, max attempts, and custom exceptions. Finally, you will explore how to avoid the pain points associated with microservices by implementing retry. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge needed to implement a standardized, scalable, and configurable retry framework in your application using Spring Retry.

Course Overview
(Music) Hi everyone. My name is Tyler Griffiths, and welcome to my course, Spring Retry: Getting Started. If you love Spring, you'll love Spring Retry. It's a great way to alleviate some of the pain points associated with microservice environments, and it's painless to implement in your existing application. In this course, we're going to add retry to an existing microservice application that's probably very similar to applications you work on. Some of the major topics that we will cover include adding retry to Spring's venerable RestTemplate, configuring custom retry policies such as backoff and max attempts, fine tuning retry by specifying specific exceptions to retry, and pain points that retry can help you avoid. By the end of this course, you will know the basics of Spring Retry and be ready to implement Spring Retry in your existing microservice environment. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with Java and have a basic understanding of microservices and Spring Framework. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn Spring Retry, with the Spring Retry: Getting Started course, at Pluralsight.
