Microservices principles are revolutionizing the way applications are
built by enabling a more decoupled and decentralized approach to
implementation, which leads to greater agility, scalability, and resilience.
These applications still need to be connected to one another and to existing
systems of record. It clearly makes sense to use microservice techniques in
the integration space, too. Lightweight integration provides the benefits of
cloud-ready containerization to integration architecture, and provides the
opportunity to escape from the heavily centralized ESB pattern to more
empowered and autonomous application teams. // Read more: original article.
