If you are living in the same world as I am, you must have heard the latest coding buzzer termed “microservices”—a lifeline for developers and enterprise-scale businesses. Over the last few years, microservice architecture emerged to be on top of conventional SOA (Service Oriented Architecture). This much more precise and smaller architecture brought in many benefits. Enough to make the business more scalable in a fly-by paralleling development, testing, and maintenance across various independent teams. Considering how different this approach is from the conventional monolithic process, the testing strategies that apply are also different. With different testing strategies emerge different testing challenges.
By far, everyone in the tech world is aware that microservice architecture is useful in delivering a more responsive and agile application. Some major organizations, such as Netflix, Nike, Facebook, etc., have backed their performance based on this architecture.
