Software Architecture Patterns for Serverless Systems - Second Edition

By: John Gilbert

Overview of this book

Organizations undergoing digital transformation rely on IT professionals to design systems to keep up with the rate of change while maintaining stability. With this edition, enriched with more real-world examples, you’ll be perfectly equipped to architect the future for unparalleled innovation. This book guides through the architectural patterns that power enterprise-grade software systems while exploring key architectural elements (such as events-driven microservices, and micro frontends) and learning how to implement anti-fragile systems. First, you'll divide up a system and define boundaries so that your teams can work autonomously and accelerate innovation. You'll cover the low-level event and data patterns that support the entire architecture while getting up and running with the different autonomous service design patterns. This edition is tailored with several new topics on security, observability, and multi-regional deployment. It focuses on best practices for security, reliability, testability, observability, and performance. You'll be exploring the methodologies of continuous experimentation, deployment, and delivery before delving into some final thoughts on how to start making progress. By the end of this book, you'll be able to architect your own event-driven, serverless systems that are ready to adapt and change.

Implementing different kinds of BFF services

Up to this point, we have learned how to control the scope of a BFF service and we have seen its major building blocks. In Chapter 5, Turning the Cloud into the Database, we discussed how different actors interact with data in different ways as it moves through its life cycle. Let's look at some different kinds of BFF services that cater to the different phases of the data life cycle. These include CRUD, LOV, Task, Search, Action, Dashboard, Reporting, and Archive BFF services.

CRUD BFF services

A CRUD BFF service is the most general variation of the BFF service pattern. These BFF services let us Create, Read, Update and Delete (CRUD) data. They support user activities in the Create phase of the data life cycle.For example, the Restaurant BFF service in our food delivery system allows restaurant owners and representatives to create and maintain their menus. The events from this service will feed the Menu BFF services that we will cover...
