In previous article I discussed how to decompose an application into an architectural design using volatility based decomposition. I now want to show how the architecture can help you with your project planning.
In previous articles I discussed the different ways a use case can be broken down into services. In the following article I will extend on that and show how the back-end should drive your front-end.
Volatility based decomposition is way to break a system up into components that can absorb change and result in a stable system. It builds on SOLID principles and can be viewed as the opposite of functional decomposition.
Functional decomposition is a way to decompose \ break down a system into its most simplistic components and functions for rapid application development.
The hidden monolith I decided to start an article based on the “Hidden monolith”. Micro-services are the latest architecture style that everyone is employing. Often companies hear the new buzz word “Micro services” and say – “We must do that” … and when you start to analyze their system you realize… they got it a… Read More »
