Resilience4j at a Glance

Reading Time: 4 minutes Resilience4j at a Glance Scope of this article is applications based on microservice architecture. Let me begin with a question, what is most important non-functional requirement from any application? Undoubtedly the answer of this question will be ‘Robustness’. This means applications must behave reasonable with respect to adverse scenarios. Against all adverse scenarios application needs to take either corrective action or redirect to reasonable action Continue Reading

Introduction to Domain Driven Design (DDD)

Reading Time: 3 minutes What is Domain? To define domain-driven-design we should first establish what we mean by domain. The common dictionary definition of the domain is a sphere of knowledge, influence, or activity. In the context of software engineering, it refers to the subject area on which the application is intended to apply. For example, if you are building an E-commerce software, in this case, sales will be Continue Reading
