Context: Microservice is an architectural style that separates large systems into small functional units to provide better modularity. A key challenge of microservice architecture design frequently discussed in the literature is the identification and decomposition of the service modules. Besides this, two other key challenges can be identified, including the deployment of the modules on the corresponding execution platform, and adopted communication patterns.
