Microservices in Practice - Key Architectural Concepts of an MSA

This whitepaper will focus on the key architectural concepts of a microservice architecture (MSA) and discuss how you can use those concepts in practice.

Connected Identity: Benefits, Risks, and Challenges

SAML, OpenID, OpenID Connect, WS-Federation all support identity federation – in other words, all of these standards enable cross-domain authentication. Yet, most federation systems today operate in silos - i.e., a SAML federation silo, an OpenID Connect federation silo, an OpenID federation silo, etc. The ability to scale in a given federation silo is challenging given the increasing number of service and identity providers.

A Reference Architecture for Deploying WSO2 Middleware on Kubernetes

Kubernetes is an open source container management system for automating deployment, operations, scaling of containerized applications and creating cluster of containers. It provides advanced platform as a service (PaaS) features, such as container grouping, auto healing, horizontal auto-scaling, DNS management, load balancing, rolling out updates, and resource monitoring, and make container as a service (CaaS). Deploying WSO2 middleware on Kubernetes requires a Carbon membership scheme for Carbon cluster discovery, and Kubernetes artifacts for automating the deployment.

WSO2 REST API Design Guidelines

This white paper provides guidelines, based on proven industry best practices, on how to develop a REST API that reaches Level 2 of the Richardson Maturity Model.

Scope Versus Size: A Pragmatic Approach to Microservice Architecture

This white paper will focus on the key fundamentals of microservice architecture (MSA) and how technology has evolved to what it is today. It will also discuss the role of enterprise middleware in building an MSA.

Event-Driven Architecture: The Path to Increased Agility and High Expandability

This white paper will discuss the basic functions of an event-driven architecture (EDA) and explains the key advantages it could potentially offer enterprises -both traditional and connected- across many industries.
