I am pleased to announce that my upcoming book “Vert.x in Action: Asynchronous and Reactive Applications in Java” is now available from the Manning early-access program (MEAP): (See below for the exclusive Red Hat Developer discount code) As enterprise applications become larger and more distributed, new architectural approaches like reactive designs, microservices, and event streams […]
Microservices and microservice architecture is the modern approach to building cloud-native applications as independent services.
One of the greatest challenges of moving from traditional monolithic application design to a microservices architecture is being able to monitor your business transaction flow—the flow of events via micro service calls throughout your entire system.
What are Microservices?
Microservices are an architecture for breaking up a monolithic application into a collection of smaller pieces. Each of those pieces provides a particular function via a well-defined and carefully managed API. The collection delivers the same overall business value as the original monolithic application, but the independence of the individual pieces means they can be updated much more quickly without impacting the overall collection. (This requires, of course, that any changes to the API are done in a backwards-compatible way.)
