Abstract

© 2020 IEEE. Microservices have emerged as an alternative solution to many existing technologies allowing to break monolithic applications into 'small' fine-grained, highly-cohesive, and loosely-coupled units. However, identifying microservices remains a challenge that could undermine this migration success. This paper proposes an approach for microservices automatic-identification from a set of business processes (BP). The approach is multi-models combining different independent models that represent a BP's control dependencies, data dependencies, semantic dependencies, respectively. the approach is also based on collaborative clustering. A case study about renting bikes is adopted to illustrate and demonstrate the approach. In term of precision, the results show how BPs as inputs permit to generate better microservices compared to other approaches discussed in the paper, as well.
