Final Thesis: Preparing the Sweble Hub Software for the Cloud

Abstract: This master thesis proposes concept and implementation of a microservice-based architecture for the Sweble Hub software. In future, with this microservice-based architecture, Sweble should be deployed in the cloud in order to manage a big workload from many users accessing the wiki. The thesis gives an overview about the microservice architecture pattern and which additional components are necessary because of the distributed setting. A concept is introduced in which way the current architecture of Sweble can be sliced into microservices. From this concept two microservices are implemented. Finally, the concept and implementation of the microservice architecture is evaluated for its suitability. It is shown, that Sweble fits into the microservice pattern. However, microservices are not a silver bullet and with the architecture style some complexities are introduced into the system because of the distributed environment.
