Building Microservices
Designing Fine-Grained Systems
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: May 2014
Pages: 250

With Early Release ebooks, you get books in their earliest form — the author's raw and unedited content as he or she writes — so you can take advantage of these technologies long before the official release of these titles. You'll also receive updates when significant changes are made, new chapters as they're written, and the final ebook bundle.



Over the past 10 years, distributed systems have become more fine-grained. From the large multi-million line long monolithic applications, we are now seeing the benefits of smaller self-contained services. Heavy-weight, hard to change Service Oriented Architectures are not the answer; instead we are now seeing finer-grained systems consisting of collaborating microservices. Easier to change, deploy, and if required retire, organizations which are in the right position to take advantage of them are yielding significant benefits.

This book takes an holistic view of the things you need to be cognizant of in order to pull this off. It covers just enough understanding of technology, architecture, operations and organization to show you how to move towards finer-grained systems.

    Comments about oreilly Building Microservices:

    As an engineer of REST / HATEOAS-based services, I expected some new insights into engineering microservices, yet at the current stage of the early draft, I found the underlying substance of the book lacking; I definitely hope this improves in the next iterations of the book.

    Comments about oreilly Building Microservices:

    This book is an interesting starting point.
    I'd like to see some more code samples that readers can use to build their own microservice systems. I would be particularly interested in seeing samples in ruby + golang. Also more information about how to setup your network infrastructure to support these kinds of systems.

    I have some interest in architecture designing. Building MicroServices give me wide field of possibilities in this domain.

    I found this book easy to understand with lot of use case.

    I'm impatient to read missing parts of this early release.
