Chapter 13. Example of a Microservices-Based Architecture

This chapter provides an example of an implementation of a microservices-based architecture. It aims at demonstrating concrete technologies in order to lay the foundation for experiments. The example application has a very simple domain architecture containing a few compromises. Section 13.1 deals with this topic in detail.

For a real system with a comparable low complexity as in the presented example application, an approach without microservices would be better suited. However, the low complexity makes the example application easy to understand and simple to extend. Some aspects of a microservice environment, such as security, documentation, monitoring, or logging are not illustrated ...
