This section covers the first chapter of the book. It introduces the microservice architecture and the problems it aims to solve from a classic monolith system.
Chapter 1, Making the Move – Design, Plan, Execute, describes a typical situation for a monolith system, its problems, and how the move to microservices can improve the development speed and independent features implementation. It also produces a plan in several steps to facilitate making the move from the initial unique monolith to a multiple RESTful microservice. It also introduces using Docker to implement the different microservices as containers.
In this section, we describe the example system that we will use throughout the book to give a real example of going from a monolithic application to a microservice architecture.
