This session compares Service-oriented, Service-based, and Micro-service architectures, describing the problem each is designed to solve, differences and similarities, variants and hybrids, and engineering practices.
Microservice architectures are quite popular, described as “SOA done correctly”. But what are the real differences between these architectural styles? And what about middle ground between the shared everything of SOA versus shared nothing of microservices? This talk explores the similarities and differences between various service-oriented architectural styles. I describe the characteristics of SOA, microservices, and hybrid service-based architectures, along with the considerations and constraints for each. I also discuss specific engineering practices, orchestration styles, reuse strategies, and migrating from monolithic applications to service-based or microservice architectures. No one architecture can solve every problem, and many projects take on more complexity than necessary by choosing the wrong paradigm.
