Designing Business Logic in a Microservice Architecture

From Microservices Patterns by Chris Richardson

The heart of an enterprise application is the business logic that implements the business rules. In a microservice architecture the business logic is spread over multiple services. Some external invocations of the business logic are handled by a single service. Other, more complex requests, are handled by multiple services and sagas are used to enforce data consistency. In this article, I describe how to implement a service’s business logic.

Using Predicates to Send Different Responses

From Testing Microservices with Mountebank by Brandon Byars

This article discusses a unique kind of service testing – testing a service that depends on a fictional “Abagnale” service. It involves doing something which has probably never been done before in the history of mocking frameworks: we need to create a virtual imposter that pretends to be a real imposter.
