thanks Stephan, it looks clear to me now.
I think should be Skaffold instead of Scaffold? Scaffold is a class in Flutter actually.
Hi Ashish Choudhary,

I'm trying to understand the relationship between Kubernetes, Skaffold, and Spring-Boot.

From my understanding, Skaffold is a great tool for microservices development. It helps us build, push, and deploy steps for Kubernetes applications.
In the book description, you also mentioned that we will learn how to deploy Spring Boot apps to cloud platforms using Skaffold.

My question is, what is the relationship between Kubernetes and Spring-Boot?  Seems like both of them can be used to build applications?


I have forwarded those emails to book promo account. Thanks.

So who will be the next lucky winner? :P

My address is in US. This are the replies from publisher:

Terraform in Action -  Publisher said they usually send only ebook.
Beginning Intellij IDEA - Publisher only send ebook to me.
Practical Cloud-Native Java Development with MicroProfile - Publisher said they received the winners list from CodeRanch team for eBooks. They will only send print copies to Amazon reviewers in exchange for an honest review on

I’m asking this because I'm not living in US. If I know it's an ebook during promotion day, there's no need for me to find US friend at the beginning.

Thanks Ranch, I have received 3 ebooks and one paper book (I thought will receive 4 books at first).  

I think if mention whether we win a copy of a book / ebook during the book promotion date would be better ?

Anyway just my suggestion.

What specifically about Java 17 is covered in this book?  How does that differ from basic beginners java book?

FYI, you can view the book contents by clicking the "Look inside" on Amazon page.

Thanks for the program list, Les.

I will start to use Paint first as I heard it quite pretty basic and simple to learn.

No Campbell, I'm bad at drawing and design.
