Service-Oriented Architecture or SOA is an architectural approach for designing and developing a web application. In this approach, an application uses services available over the network via communication calls or requests.

  • SOA includes a set of design principles that structure system development while providing means for integrating components into a unified and decentralized architecture.
  • It allows developers to merge a considerable amount of facilities from existing services to the application.
  • In SOA, resources are packages as “services”, that are self-contained and well-defined modules that offer standard business functionality and are independent of the context or state of other services.

There are three major roles within Service-Oriented Architecture:


Tech Trends for Programmers in 2021

For the software development industry and programmers 2020 has been a significant year with lots of breakthroughs in several areas. With the global pandemic, digitization has sped up remarkably, so the trends that we will be discussing today will be much greater than the last year.

The development of software and web applications has become a crucial aspect of today’s business while programmers or developers have become an integral part of the enterprise that helps businesses innovate, emerge and thrive.

We’ve already spent four months into 2021 and it’s crystal clear that a programmer with cutting-edge skills will continue to…

Developers have been using three major building blocks for the development of web apps, namely, APIs, Web Services, and Microservices. Some people are still unaware of the basic concept, usability, and working of three different concepts. So today’s article is entirely dedicated to the individuals who have heard about these terms but are confused about the purpose each has.

Typically, a web application operates with three major components, that are, services, gateway, and controller.

Here, a gateway is a single entry point to the application. It is responsible for authentication, load balancing, monitoring, caching, static response handling, and so on…

Oracle Cloud vs AWS

Oracle Cloud (OCI) vs AWS. The development of technology, storage, and processing strength has caused the embodiment of cloud computing and its increasing recognition throughout diverse industries for vital enterprise assist functions.

Over the last decade, the cloud computing market has grown at an exponential rate, with that, some cloud computing providers have also acquired power while others are emerging under these circumstances. Although, it is a challenge to compare virtual machines offerings from two different vendors. We are about to reach a decision on Oracle Cloud vs AWS comparison.

Here, we will have a look at their features and…

Core Banking Software Development

The term core banking (Centralized Online Real-Time Exchange) ensures synchronization among network bank branches. They are integrated with a centralized server that enables the processing of data in real-time. It allows customers to access their bank account details and perform basic transactions from any branch offices. Core banking functionalities include loans, mortgages, transactions, and payments which were traditionally available through ATM or branches. But core banking software development along with network technology enables a bank to centralize its record-keeping while providing access to the bank account transactions from any location.

Why Build Core Banking Software?

The banking system around the globe had been witnessing a…

Source: Cannabis App Development

Over half of the US country has legalized Cannabis for medical purposes that have led to the soaring growth of its industry. With the innovations in technologies and the relaxation in regulations, the sales of marijuana or cannabis are turned into the fastest-growing business, especially in the USA.

Cannabis that is being used in the healthcare industry for quite some has reached the mark of $20.6 billion business in the market. While it is predicted to reach $42.7 billion by 2024.

Microservices VS API

Microservices vs Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). Both have a distinct role in software development. However, having the overlap between the two, it becomes confusing to understand how they really differ. So, today’s article will guide you through the concept of APIs and microservices separately, what they do, the way they work, and how they differ from each other.

Microservices or Microservices Architecture is an architectural method that structures an application as a collection of smaller components also known as services that are loosely coupled, independently deployable, highly maintainable and testable, owned by a small development team, and organized around business…

API vs Web Services

Key Difference Between Web Services and APIs. APIs and Web Services are those two terms that get overlapped and confused with each other. You might have heard these words used interchangeably quite often. Although they do have a few overlaps, the concept of both is different. So let’s get started with the basics and help you to understand the difference and similarities between them.

What Is a Web Service?

Web Services are a web application component. It is a set of technologies and rules that allows two or more components on the web or internet to interact with each other. These components can be anything…

Microservice Architecture or Microservices are increasingly being used in the software industry to create large and complex applications. It is an approach where a single application comprises several loosely coupled and independently deployable services. The trend of using microservices has grown over the years as organizations want to become agile while moving towards continuous testing and DevOps.

Let’s understand the concept of microservices in detail.

To understand what microservices are and what they are offering, it is important to acknowledge its predecessor monolithic architecture.

Traditionally, software developers used to create a large application using monolithic architecture. Monolithic refers to composing…

Microservices architecture enables a system to be divided into multiple smaller, individual and independent services. Every service present in the microservices architecture is robust, flexible, composable, and complete. These services run as an autonomous process and interact with each other through APIs. Moreover, each microservice of the system can be integrated with different programming languages and platforms.
