Microservices architectures – Thoughts from a SOA perspective by The Cattle Crew

clip_image002A frequently discussed topic these days is the Micorservices architectural paradigm. Discussions on various internet blogs and forums are showing the trend that proponents of this approach are not tired of emphasizing why Microservices are different to a holistic SOA approach, when dealing with breaking up or avoiding monolithic software architectures.

For this reason it’s time for the Cattle Crew team, to take a closer look on this arising architectural style and the corresponding discussions from a different perspective.

Microservices Architectures

Amongst others Martin Fowler published a blog about what is characteristic for Microservices and applications build on the foundation of this architectural style [1].  According to this and other blog posts (see also [2], [3]), the goal of a Microservices approach is to avoid software systems to become monolithic, inflexible and hardly manageable, by splitting a system into modular, lightweight and maximum cohesive services. Applications build on this architecture should ensure the agility regarding changes caused by changed business requirements, because affected services of an application can simply be adapted and be redeployed independently from other components.

Effectively a Microservice is a in itself cohesive, atomic application, which fulfills a dedicated purpose. Therefore it encapsulates all needed elements, e.g. UIs, logic components, may also have its own separated persistent store and may run in a separate JVM, to ensure as less impairment to other services as possible. Furthermore the implementation technologies for a specific service may vary. For each service the best-fitting technology should be used; there should be no restrictions regarding the used technologies.

To ensure consistency as well as compatibility with already existing components in case of changes and to guarantee seamless release management of changed components, a Continuous Delivery procedure is indispensable for succeeding. In addition the implementation efficiency benefits from the Microservices approach, because different components may be developed in parallel. Communication between the services, if needed, is done via lightweight protocols such as HTTP. Well defined interfaces are depicting the service contracts.

Where there is light, there is also shadow… Read the complete article here.

Improve performance and maintenance of heavily used SOA composites by Cattle Crew

As stated in a previous post, heavily used transient BPEL processes should be configured with some well-defined parameters in order to avoid storing too much data in the database, thus optimizing performance.

However, even if BPEL processes inside the composite are configured this way, data of other components like mediators and the composite itself are all stored in the database. How much information is stored can be influenced by the audit level setting. As of documentation, the audit levels are defined as follows:

  • Off: No composite instance tracking and payload tracking information is collected. No more composite instances can be created. No logging is performed. Note that disabling logging and the display of instances in Oracle Enterprise Manager Fusion Middleware Control Console can result in a slight performance increase for processing instances. Instances are created, but are not displayed.
  • Development: Enables both composite instance tracking and payload detail tracking. However, this setting may impact performance. This level is useful largely for testing and debugging purposes.
  • Production: Composite instance tracking is collected, but the Oracle Mediator service engine does not collect payload details and the BPEL process service engine does not collect payload details for assign activities (payload details for other BPEL activities are collected). This level is optimal for most normal production operations.

faultsGenerally, the SOA Infrastructure audit level is set to Production or Development - depending on the environment – and the composites are set to inherit this audit level. In case of an intensively used composite this means that a lot of data is persisted in the database.
The audit level, however, can be overridden for every composite. Since the data from the transient, short-lived composites is not needed, the setting Off for the relevant composite should be an interesting option to consider. Three questions must be answered:

  • How much information is persisted from the composite instance?
  • How much information is persisted from the component instances inside the composite?
  • What happens in case of an error?

With Oracle BPM Suite 11g PS6 the modeling, simulation, implementation and execution of business processes in a multi-user environment is straightforward – Danilo Schmiedel , OPITZ CONSULTING

imageWe know quite a few companies who are in the situation that processes are unpredictable, complex, difficult to model and versatile. Their software users complain that they cannot make proper business decisions because they are forced to certain process steps and their processes rely on worker knowledge and involve a lot of human participants. Think about a claim notification after a car accident - it is very difficult to model each potential option of it and a lot of effort and time is necessary to bring all varieties into the process. Think about the user interface – it has to be very dynamic in order to make optimal business decisions. With Oracle BPM Suite 11.1.1.7 and its new case management functionalities we are now ready to address requirements like those mentioned above. This is the base to provide complete BPM solutions. I couldn’t wait to play with the software and I am really happy to discuss and demonstrate the new product capabilities with our customers. Danilo Schmiedel , OPITZ CONSULTING

BPM PS6 greatest things are the improved web based development experience with process composer- Torsten Winterberg, OPITZ CONSULTING

OPITZ CONSULTING is already using Oracle BPM Suite 11g in several successful projects. We wereimage very pleased to see the investment Oracle is putting into this tooling, with PS6 being more a major release than just a patch set. We took part in the PS6 beta program and therefore had the chance to test all the new functionality in detail. Greatest things are the improved web based development experience with process composer, which became much more mature. Player is a great feature to quickly understand modeling consequences. Most important for us are the new case management features. A bunch of customers is waiting for this new level in bpm projects – interesting times are ahead. Torsten Winterberg, OPITZ CONSULTING
