The UI – API aggregation

Until now, we have built independent microservices. They had a specific purpose and dealt with one specific part of our system: e-mail sending, product management, and order processing, but now we are building a microservice whose only purpose is to facilitate the communication between microservices.

Now we are going to build a microservice that interacts with others and is the front-facing façade to the customer.
