3 Ways Of Recycling Third-party Code for AWS Lambda. In this article, we're discussing AWS Lambda Layers, Lambda Extensions, and Docker image for Lambda. How and when to use which?
In this article, I’m trying to shine some light on the AWS Lambda Layers, Lambda Extensions, and Docker image for Lambda, in order to add third-party code to Lambda. I'll also go over when and how to use which method, and when to mix and match.
Due to the circumstances in 2020, many software releases were postponed, and so the industry slowed its development speed quite a bit.
But at least at AWS, some teams got updates out of the door at the end of the year. AWS Lambda got two significant improvements. AWS Lambda Extensions and the support of Docker images for your Lambda functions. Thanks to these two new features and Lambda Layers, we now have three ways to add code to Lambda that isn’t directly part of our Lambda function.
The question now is: When should we use what?
First things first. All these Lambda features can be used together. So if you’re thinking about where to put your code, at least your decisions aren’t mutually exclusive. You can upload a Docker image and attach a regular Lambda Layer and a Lambda Extension. The same is possible if your Lambda function is based on a ZIP archive.
Adding Code to AWS Lambda, Lambda Layers, and Lambda Extensions Using Docker. With Docker, we have three ways to add code to Lambda that isn’t directly part of our Lambda function. Try to AWS Lambda, Lambda Layers, and Lambda Extensions Using Docker.
Serverless Express enables you to easily host Express.js APIs on AWS Lambda and AWS HTTP API. Here is how to get started and deliver a Serverless Express.js based API with a custom domain, free SSL certificate and much more!
When to use Docker on AWS Lambda, Lambda Layers, and Lambda Extensions. AWS Lambda Extensions; and; Support of Docker images for your functions. With these two new features and Lambda Layers. AWS Lambda Extensions; and Support of Docker images for your functions.
Serverless Proxy with AWS API Gateway and AWS Lambda. We can communicate between Public and Private instance via a Serverless Proxy thanks to AWS Api Gateway and AWS Lambda. Github Webhook calls a Public API Gateway, API Gateway triggers a Lambda attached to VPC.
Micronaut is creating a buzz around cloud-native application development due to its enriched features and optimizations based out of modern Polyglot JVM.
