OpenShift Commons Briefing #101: Monolith to Microservices: A Journey with James Falkner (Red Hat)
October 18, 2017 | by
OpenShift Commons Briefing Summary
In this briefing, Red Hat's James Falkner gave an excellent presentation on how to migrate monolithic applications to microservices covering a number of approaches from Rehosting, Refactoring, to Strangulation by Microservice (my favorite metaphor so far this year)! James zeroed in on the use case of modernizing legacy services as well as developing responsive cloud-native services to demonstrate the power of microservices and a number of techniques for modernizing your monolithic applications. He also walked us thru a great demonstration of migrating a monolith to microservices using each of the different Red Hat OpenShift Application Runtimes (RHOAR).
He covered multiple runtime options including:
JBoss EAP - existing Java EE / Spring apps
WildFly Swarm / MicroProfile - Java EE centric MSA
Spring Boot / Cloud - Spring centric MSA
Vert.x - greenfield reactive Java
This briefing is an excellent introduction for anyone looking to get started with microservices.
