Decompose Monolithic Application To Microservices

How To Decompose Application into Microservices.

After reading the previous two posts you all must be excited to implement microservice architecture to your application and that's good you should be ready to implement something new that might boost the application performance,  maintenance, scalability and will make your application future proof. But have you ever thought how will you be breaking your application into micro application i.e microservices. Think about it for some minute exercise your brain for some time before reading the below tutorial.

Now i am sure that you all might  have come through excellent ideas for breaking up your application in microservices. Please feel free to mention your valuable ideas in comment so that other or even me can be benefited by your ideas.

Now before breaking your application into micro-services you should consider following points.

Points to be considered before creating microservices.

  • Your each services should be easily testable.
  • Your application should be Cohesive.
  • Your application should be easily maintained by the help of small team(6-8 members).
  • Each micro-services should be loosely coupled.
  • Each team who are developing microservices should be self capable for end to end process from development to deployment.

Patterns to decompose your monolithic application into microservices

  • Decompose on basis of business capability.
  • Decompose on basis of subdomain.

Decomposition on basis of business

Whenever we develop microservices architecture we focus that our application is loosely coupled and support continuous delivery and development. Whenever changes come to our application it should impact only one service no multiple services as when the we have to deal with multiple services changes in order to comply with single change then we have to interact and depend on multiple team which will slow the process of development and cost productivity.

So when decomposing the application into microservices we can considers business capabilities. Business capability is something that business does to generate its value. We will take and example of school management system. 
In School management system from where the scholl generates it value.
  • Admission
  • Students
  • Stationery 
Then we can decompose our application on igh label into 3 services on which will deal with admission of the student, Students management, and Stationery.

Main problem with this structure is before decomposing one should have proper understating of business and its organisation for successful decomposition of the application.

Decomposition on basis of Subdomain

We can follow Domain-Driven Design(DDD) to apply this type of decomposition. In this Decomposition we have to define our domains in which our business will be working and also we have to identify the subdomain for each domain so that our each services will be small and easily manageable. We will take same example as we took above, of Student Management.
Here we can have domain as.
  • Admission
  • Students
  • Stationery
And further Admission can be decomposed into Accounts, Fees Management and etc
And Students can be decomposed into enrollment, Attendance and etc.
By this we will be having small modules or services which are easily manageable and maintainable. 

Conclusion

In this blog we learn about ways to decompose our monolithic application into small, maintainable, scalable services which are loosely coupled and help in continuous delivery and deployment. We covered about Decomposition on basis of business and Decomposition on basis of subdomain
Where in business decomposition we have to decompose our application by identifying  the business capability which generates revenue for the business and in Subdomain decomposition we learned the way do decompose the application in domain by domain driven design and further decomposing the into subdomains.

Creating Simple Hello World Application with SPRING BOOT

For creating a simple running web application with spring boot we do not have to do much. We just require to follow some simple steps and we are good to go. Unlike SpringMVC framework we do not. have to take care of all heck of configuration or XML file in one go we are all set with working mvc based web application.

Now we have to follow these steps.

Generate spring boot project from this url "https://start.spring.io/" You can do the same using STS setting to.Importing the project in STS.

Routing in Angular 7

What you will learn after reading this post.What is Routing in Angular 7.Basic routing of component in Angular 7.Active link in routing in Angular 7.Wild card routing in Angular 7.Child routing in Angular 7.1. What is Routing in Angular 7? Whenever in normal HTML web page we click on a link we are navigated to specific page given in that link. When we are navigated then entire view of the application is reloaded again which cost resources and this type of application is not single page application. 

Adding Spring-Security to Spring-Boot App

In the previous post we have created a simple spring boot application. This application was very simple application just getting request and showing page for requested URL. Currently all urls are open to all user that is we do not have any kind of authentication on the URL. Our spring boot application is like the open pool in which any one can come and start fishing. Now we want to secure our application so that only authenticated user will be able to visit secure part of the application. For this purpose we will be using the Spring Security. 
Scope of this tutorial. In this we will learn basic integration of spring security with spring boot.
NOTE: This tutorial will just contain only basic integration of spring security. If you haven’t gone through previous tutorial and you are the newbies to this spring boot then I will request you to go through previous post to get understanding of spring boot. 
Now lets get started with the configuration.If you do not have the previous code you can …

Java is one of my favourite language. Currently i am working with Tata Consultancy Services, Hyderabad. Tata Consultancy is my first company where i started my career on 24th Oct 2016.

Currently i am working on spring mvc in TCS but i also have a knowledge of Spring Boot, Angular, MongoDB. reqularly i am trying to add extra beauty to my profile. For this i believe in learn and unlearn strategy.

Reason for developing this blog is to show case my work and keep me busy during the weekends. Yahh! its true i have lot of free time on weekends as i don't have any girlfriend to waste my time with. And so i created this blog to show case my learning and work. Now, this blog gives me a goal to pursue and the way to keep me busy.

Through this blog i will try to share to all readers that i will be learning in course of time. I will try to keep this blog updated with latest evolution in develo…

Feature Modules in Angular 7

Feature Module Whenever we  create angular application we go on adding components to angular application. But as our application goes on increasing it become to much problematic to maintain such application. Every feature of our application is binded under single module which we call as app module. Which is root module of our Angular 7 application. While developing angular application without modularizing its features creates several problems  Application is not easily scalable.Application is tough to maintain.Application complexity makes it hard to understand. Solution Here feature modules comes for our rescue. Feature modules help angular applications to get modularised on basis of features present in our application. As our application grows we can divide our entire application in small feature using feature module. Feature modules helps in creating boundary that separates our specific functionality or say features. Feature modules communicates with other module or root module usin…
