Identifying Micro-service architectural erosion or inconsistency
Micro services are becoming popular amongst technology providers, transportation industry etc. These not only claim to provide solution to the traditional problems such as agility, saleability, maintainability etc. caused by the single tier applications, or as called monolithic, but also claim to improve productivity of development teams by improving scalability and maintainability of the software applications. The benefits offered by Micro services are encouraging not only corporate giants but small companies and public sector to adopt those. There is a paradigm shift from monolithic and service-oriented architecture (SOA) to the Micro services-based systems. In this research we will provide an approach for identifying inconsistencies between Microservice based systems and architectural models.
