ZooKeeper, Curator and How Microservices Load Balancing Works

How Zookeeper makes sure that every worker happily gets some stuff to do from job delegating manager

Apache ZooKeeper is a tool to register, manage and discover services working on different machines. It is an indispensable member in technology stack when we have to deal with distributed system with many nodes which need to know where their dependencies are launched.

However ZooKeeper is pretty low level and even standard use-cases require many lines of code. That is why Apache Curator was born – a much more friendly and easier to use wrapper library over ZooKeeper. Using Curator we can deliver more with less code and in a much cleaner way.
