Software Architecture with Spring 5.0

By: René Enríquez, Alberto Salazar

Overview of this book

Spring 5 and its ecosystem can be used to build robust architectures effectively. Software architecture is the underlying piece that helps us accomplish our business goals whilst supporting the features that a product demands. This book explains in detail how to choose the right architecture and apply best practices during your software development cycle to avoid technical debt and support every business requirement. Choosing the right architecture model to support your business requirements is one of the key decisions you need to take when a new product is being created from scratch or is being refactored to support new business demands. This book gives you insights into the most common architectural models and guides you when and where they can be used. During this journey, you’ll see cutting-edge technologies surrounding the Spring products, and understand how to use agile techniques such as DevOps and continuous delivery to take your software to production effectively. By the end of this book, you’ll not only know the ins and outs of Spring, but also be able to make critical design decisions that surpass your clients’ expectations.

Chapter 2. Software Architecture Dimensions

In the previous chapter, you learned that a software's architecture is made up of a team's shared knowledge when building a product or service, as well as other important aspects surrounding this concept. An architect's job is to share this knowledge with the entire team. Even when a team doesn't have somebody assigned to the specific role of the architect, individuals often end up becoming responsible for the system's architecture.

In this chapter, we will review software architecture dimensions and how they influence our applications. We will also introduce a model for documenting software architectures and making the process of sharing and understanding an architecture less difficult for teams. Ultimately, this will allow them to understand the bigger picture of software architecture.

This chapter will cover the following topics and subtopics:

  • Software architecture dimensions:
    • Business dimension
    • Data dimension
    • Technical dimension
    • Operations dimension...
