Decoupled Applications and Composable Web Architectures

Book description

Want to move beyond the restrictions of your monolithic application? While decoupled applications and composable web architectures are relatively new concepts, they're already poised to change the world of software and product architecture. This report shows software architects how to design decoupled applications with microservices and headless systems that will free you from the monolith.

Stefan Baumgartner examines ways to compose applications and websites from multiple endpoints, while keeping resilience and availability in mind. Instead of having everything in one rigid, hard-to-maintain application, you can use your favorite technology to develop new features that are independent of other parts of the system.

Migrate from your monolith to a more flexible web architecture. This report helps you:

  • Explore the benefits and trade-offs of composable web applications at large
  • Migrate to a composable web architecture no matter what your present setup looks like
  • Use this new architecture to create more resilient, fail-safe, and sustainable experiences
  • Ship new features fast, and drop your backend implementation in favor of a third-party service
  • Learn how composable web architectures ensure that every part of your web project is developed independently
