I am interested in feedback on an efficient approach for debugging spring microservices in your IDE.
The common approach is to use a shared dev cluster for debugging a microservice. If you are also using this approach, it is highly likely that you are dealing with the pain of instability and bugs in other services that are also evolving in parallel. Would you be interested in an alternative approach that enables you to debug and test API interactions locally in your IDE? Some benefits include:
-- Developing and debugging microservices in IDE as if the entire application is running locally.
-- Auto-creation and customization of microservices API mocks.
-- Switching seamlessly between using mocks and live services to validate forward/backward compatibility.
