  • Microservice Threading Models and their Tradeoffs

    by Glenn Engstrand on  May 06, 2016 4

    A microservice's efficiency and resource consumption patterns are dramatically affected by its threading model. Choosing the correct model for your solution is a basic requirement for success. Glenn Engstrand investigates multiple options for a service's execution life-cycle, gives examples of the benefits and drawbacks for each choice, and provides recommendations for each model's implementation.

  • UED: The Unified Execution Diagram

    by Carlo van Asma & Pascal Wolkotte on  Oct 18, 2015 4

    Today’s software applications have a lot of concurrent tasks that are distributed over multiple threads, processes, processors and PCs. This article introduces a visual modeling technique to describe and specify the application’s execution architecture. Within Philips Healthcare the Unified Execution Diagram has proven to be very useful for designing and documenting the execution architecture.
