A software architecture that breaks down a large application into smaller, independent services that can be developed, deployed, and scaled separately, improving overall flexibility, scalability, and maintainability
In the context of composable commerce and modern software architecture, microservices refer to a software development approach that involves breaking down a complex application into smaller, independent services that can be developed, deployed, and scaled independently. Each microservice is designed to perform a specific function or task, and communicates with other microservices through well-defined APIs.
For example, in the context of an ecommerce website, a microservices architecture might involve breaking down the backend system into separate services for order processing, inventory management, payment processing, and shipping fulfillment. Each of these microservices would have its own API and database, and would communicate with other microservices through API calls.
A microservices architecture can help ecommerce businesses build more flexible, scalable, and resilient systems that can adapt to changing customer needs and business requirements.
