Authentication and Authorization in Microservices

Reading Time: 3 minutes Microservices Architecture has been gaining a lot of ground as the preferred architecture for implementing solutions as it provides benefits like scalability, logical and physical separation, small teams managing a part of the functionality, flexibility in technology etc. But these benefits come at a cost of simplicity since microservices are distributed the complexity of managing them increases. One of the key challenges is how to Continue Reading

Why gRPC for Inter-Microservice Communication.

Reading Time: 3 minutes Hi folks! In this blog we will understand why one should use gRPC for inter-service communication over other RESTful services. What is gRPC? It is a high performance, open source universal RPC Framework. In simple words, it enables the server and client applications to communicate transparently and build connected systems. Google developed gRPC and made available open-source. With it, a customer can directly call methods Continue Reading

Microservices and the Saga Pattern

Reading Time: 10 minutes Microservices have become a crucial part of any enterprise these days, no matter if it is a big or a small enterprise. When something this big is present in the market why not see some fundamentals of the same? So here we’ll go through the concepts like what is a microservice and Saga Patterns that an ideal microservice should have.

You had me at Microservices! oh no

Reading Time: 2 minutes “Microservices” the way it stands is beginning to become a must-have word for a lot of enterprises. It is being touted as the main component if you are leading a digital transformation journey. System integrators are having a field day calling themselves microservices experts. End of the day 90% of the implementations are going to fail. Why? Because microservices by themselves are not the silver bullet. Definitely, Continue Reading

A Beginner’s Guide to Deploying a Lagom Microservice on Kubernetes

Reading Time: 4 minutes Both Lagom and Kubernetes are gaining popularity quite fast. Lagom is an open source framework for building reactive microservice systems in Java/Scala. And, Kubernetes (or K8s in short) is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Together they make an excellent stack for developing Reactive microservices of production grade. We have already seen a lot of blogs on Lagom on this Continue Reading

Monolithic v/s Microservices

Reading Time: 3 minutes Monolithic architecture :-  A monolithic architecture is the traditional unified model for the design of a software program. The term monolithic is not new and is borrowed from the Unix world. In Unix, most of the commands exist as a standalone program whose functionality is not dependent on any other program. In simple words, monolithic meaning is formed of a single large block of stone Continue Reading

A Beginner’s Guide to Writing Acceptance Testing for Lagom Microservices with Cucumber

Reading Time: 3 minutes In software development, acceptance criteria is a way via which a client communicates their expectations to engineering team. Also, it acts as a list of conditions upon completion of which a software/app is marked as complete. Since acceptance criteria is an important part of software development, it becomes important to determine that the acceptance criteria is met by the software or not. This sub-discipline of Continue Reading

Play around with Microservices

Reading Time: 3 minutes What is microservice architecture Microservice architecture is a method of developing software applications as a suite of independently deployable, modular services in which each service runs a unique process and communicates through a well-defined, lightweight mechanism to serve a business goal. In other words, it is an architectural style that structures an application as a collection of loosely coupled services, which implement business capabilities. Why Continue Reading

“Why do you always choose Microservices over me?” said the Monolithic architecture

Reading Time: 7 minutes Ever wondered why do companies like Apple, eBay and Netflix care so much about microservices? What makes this simple architecture so special that it is being hyped so much? Is it worth the pain and efforts to shift an entire running application from monolithic to microservices architecture? Many such questions came to our minds when we started using the microservices in our projects. In this Continue Reading

API Gateway – What’s in it for me?

Reading Time: 5 minutes PI (Application Programmable Interfaces) are the foundation for building your digital business, they are sets of routines, protocols, and tools for describing how software applications and components should interact with each other. They are the key driver in today’s economy for integrating with an ecosystem much larger than most companies can build on their own.

What is JWT (JSON Web Token)?

Reading Time: 2 minutes In this blog, we will learn about  JWT, its basic structure, advantages and how can we generate and validate JWT in java. So, Authentication is the process of verifying the identity of a user, and JWT is a safe way for transferring information between multiple parties in the JSON format. So for example, If you want to login to any application say XYZ that allows Continue Reading
