Create REST API to Send Order and Test Kafka Producer in OrderService Microservice

Let's create a simple POST REST API to send Order information as a JSON object.

In an order-service project, create a package named controller. Within a controller package, create a class named OrderController and add the following content to it:

package net.javaguides.orderservice.controller;

import net.javaguides.basedomains.dto.Order;
import net.javaguides.basedomains.dto.OrderEvent;
import net.javaguides.orderservice.kafka.OrderProducer;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.PostMapping;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RequestBody;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RequestMapping;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RestController;

import java.util.UUID;

public class OrderController {

    private OrderProducer orderProducer;

    public OrderController(OrderProducer orderProducer) {
        this.orderProducer = orderProducer;

    public String placeOrder(@RequestBody Order order){


        OrderEvent orderEvent = new OrderEvent();
        orderEvent.setMessage("order status is in pending state");


        return "Order placed successfully ...";
