  • Booking Service

  • Billing Service

While it makes the setup quite straightforward, it might impede our ability to deploy these components individually, should it be required for scalability purposes (refer to Chapter 10, Scaling a RESTful Web Service, for discussions on scalability). Instead, we will organize each service into its own individual module.

For the purpose of this section, we will focus on Maven. Our project will be made up of six separate Maven modules:

  • common: This module contains common code and the Hibernate setup that is to be used
