You have applied the Microservice architecture pattern. The application consists of numerous services. Services often invoke other services. You must write automated tests that verify that a service behaves correctly.
How to easily test that a service provides an API that its clients expect?
A test suite for a service that is written by the developers of another service that consumes it. The test suite verifies that the service meets the consuming service’s expectations.
Spring Cloud Contract is an open source project that supports this style of testing.
This pattern has the following benefits:
This pattern has the following drawbacks:
This pattern has the following issues:
Microservices.io is brought to you by Chris Richardson. Experienced software architect, author of POJOs in Action, the creator of the original CloudFoundry.com, and the author of Microservices patterns.
Chris helps clients around the world adopt the microservice architecture through consulting engagements, and training classes and workshops.
In June, I’ll be teaching a public microservices workshopover Zoom in an APAC-friendly (GMT+9) timezone.
Take a look at my Manning LiveProject that teaches you how to develop a service template and microservice chassis.
My virtual bootcamp, distributed data patterns in a microservice architecture, is now open for enrollment!
It covers the key distributed data management patterns including Saga, API Composition, and CQRS.
It consists of video lectures, code labs, and a weekly ask-me-anything video conference repeated in multiple timezones.
The regular price is $395/person but use coupon YXEERWTJ to sign up for $195 (valid until May 26th, 2022). There are deeper discounts for buying multiple seats.
Chris offers numerous resources for learning the microservice architecture.
Chris teaches comprehensive workshops, training classes and bootcamps for executives, architects and developers to help your organization use microservices effectively.
Avoid the pitfalls of adopting microservices and learn essential topics, such as service decomposition and design and how to refactor a monolith to microservices.
Delivered in-person and remotely.

Engage Chris to create a microservices adoption roadmap and help you define your microservice architecture,
Use the Eventuate.io platform to tackle distributed data management challenges in your microservices architecture.
Eventuate is Chris's latest startup. It makes it easy to use the Saga pattern to manage transactions and the CQRS pattern to implement queries.
