Spring Cloud is a versatile framework for building Java applications in various cloud environments. Today, we’ll explore how to use two components of the framework – Spring Cloud Gateway and Discovery Service (aka Spring Cloud Netflix) – for easy routing of user requests between your Java microservices.

We’ll build two microservices, register them with a Discovery Service instance, and use the Cloud Gateway for routing requests to a specific microservice instance. The cool thing is that the Cloud Gateway will also be registered with the Discovery Service and will use the latter to resolve a microservice name into an actual connection endpoint.
