This is a guest post from Daniel Bryant, Chief Scientist at OpenCredo. At OpenCredo and SpectoLabs we’re helping a lot of organisations embrace the microservice architectural style. One problematic pattern we repeatedly see when organisations are migrating from working with a single Java-based monolith to multiple microservices is the development team stumbling with orchestrating multiple […]

This article provides an overview of the concept, and aims to help you decide […]

The microservice hype is everywhere, and although the industry can’t seem to agree on an exact definition, we are repeatedly told that moving away from a monolithic application to a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) consisting of small services is the correct way to build and evolve software systems. Many industry stalwarts are suspicious as to the […]
