This is the second installment of my blog series around Stream Processing and Analytics. I will now publish by the end of the week (on Sunday evening or Monday evening) that’s why the title “Last week in …” is more appropriate ;-)
Most of my regular readers know that I recommend against having more than one service operating on the same entity, but with the groundswell of interest around microservices, there appear to be more and more people who are falling into this trap, so I thought it worthwhile to do a short refresher on the topic.
A dozen years ago, service-oriented architecture (SOA) was all the rage. The idea of exposing application services in a standard way (which at the time meant via SOAP) was so attractive. Why not remake our software to reflect the then-new agreement on how applications should communicate?
Inspired by “This Week in Cassandra”, I will start collecting and documenting once a week the latest news in the world of “Stream Processing & Streaming Analytics” platforms and framework. I will look at new projects/subprojects, blog posts and new and upcoming features around Open Source, Oracle, IBM and others.
So far it’s not planned to do that in a live discussion, as the folks at DataStax do. But maybe that could be something for the future.
