Event-Driven Microservices with Payara Micro 

Learn how to avoid common microservices headaches and discover widely-used design patterns and expert best practices.

Developing applications by following a microservices architecture has been a popular way of developing software for a while now. During this time, a series of design patterns and best practices have emerged. 

These new design patterns can be applied to avoid common microservices pitfalls, particularly, event-driven architectures have become a popular way to develop distributed systems with microservices. 

In this guide, written by David Heffelfinger (Java Champion, Java EE & microservices expert) we will cover some of these common microservices design patterns and best practices, and show how these best practices can be implemented in Java EE and Payara Micro.

 Here are some of the topics covered in the guide:

  • Design Patterns Typically Used in an Event-Driven Architecture
  • Database Per Service
  • Event Sourcing
  • Message Brokers
  • Example Using Payara Micro
