Invited Paper
Microservices Beyond COVID-19 (Invited Paper)

Authors: Antonio Brogi


Abstract
This article summarises the contents of the invited keynote that I gave back in September 2020 at the "Microservices 2020" Conference, which was held entirely online during the COVID-19 pandemic. In that keynote, I started from the question of how we can check whether a software application satisfies the main principles of microservices and -if not- of how should we refactor it. To answer that question, I discussed the capacity of existing techniques to automatically extract an architectural description of a microservice-based application, to identify architectural smells possibly violating microservices’ principles, and to select suitable refactorings to resolve them. I also discussed how a (minimal) modelling of microservice-based applications can considerably simplify their design and automate their container-based deployment. Finally, I tried to point to some interesting directions for future research on microservices.

Microservice-Aware Static Analysis: Opportunities, Gaps, and Advancements

Authors: Tomas Cerny and Davide Taibi


Abstract
Microservice architecture is the mainstream to fuel cloud-native systems with small service sets developed and deployed independently. The independent nature of this modular architecture also leads to challenges and gaps practitioners did not face in system monoliths. One of the major challenges with decentralization and its independent microservices that are managed by separate teams is that the evolving system architecture easily deviates far from the original plans, and it becomes difficult to maintain. Literature often refers to this process as system architecture degradation. Especially in the context of microservices, available tools are limited. This article challenges the audience on how static analysis could contribute to microservice system development and management, particularly managing architectural degradation. It elaborates on challenges and needed changes in the traditional code analysis to better fit these systems. Consequently, it discusses implications for practitioners once robust static analysis tools become available.

Modular Choreographies: Bridging Alice and Bob Notation to Java

Authors: Luís Cruz-Filipe, Anne Madsen, Fabrizio Montesi, and Marco Peressotti


Abstract
We present Modular Choreographies, a new choreographic programming language that features modular functions. Modular Choreographies is aimed at simplicity: its communication abstraction follows the simple tradition from the "Alice and Bob" notation. We develop a compiler toolchain that translates choreographies into modular Java libraries, which developers can use to participate correctly in choreographies. The key novelty is to compile through the Choral language, which was previously proposed to define object-oriented choreographies: our toolchain compiles Modular Choreographies to Choral, and then leverages the existing Choral compiler to generate Java code. Our work is the first to bridge the simplicity of traditional choreographic programming languages with the requirement of generating modular libraries in a mainstream language (Java).

ZVAX - A Microservice Reference Architecture for Nation-Scale Pandemic Management

Authors: Oliver Cvetkovski, Carlo Field, Davide Trinchi, Christof Marti, and Josef Spillner


Abstract
Domain-specific Microservice Reference Architectures (MSRA) have become relevant study objects in software technology. They facilitate the technical evaluation of service designs, compositions patterns and deployment configurations in realistic operational practice. Current knowledge about MSRA is predominantly confined to business domains with modest numbers of users per application. Due to the ongoing massive digital transformation of society, people-related online services in e-government, e-health and similar domains must be designed to be highly scalable at entire nation level at affordable infrastructure cost. With ZVAX, we present such a service in the e-health domain. Specifically, the ZVAX implementation adheres to an MSRA for pandemic-related processes such as vaccination registration and passenger locator form submission, with emphasis on selectable levels of privacy. We argue that ZVAX is valuable as study object for the training of software engineers and for the debate on arbitrary government-to-people services at scale.

Custom Serverless Function Scheduling Policies: An APP Tutorial

Authors: Giuseppe De Palma, Saverio Giallorenzo, Jacopo Mauro, Matteo Trentin, and Gianluigi Zavattaro


Abstract
State-of-the-art serverless platforms use hard-coded scheduling policies that hardly accommodate users in implementing functional or performance-related scheduling logic of their functions, e.g., preserving the execution of critical functions within some geographical boundaries or minimising data-access latencies. We addressed this problem by introducing {APP}: a declarative language for defining per-function scheduling policies which we also implemented as an extension of the open-source OpenWhisk serverless platform. Here, we present a gentle introduction to {APP} through an illustrative application developed over several incremental steps.

Model-Driven Code Generation for Microservices: Service Models

Authors: Saverio Giallorenzo, Fabrizio Montesi, Marco Peressotti, and Florian Rademacher


Abstract
We formally define and implement a translation of domain and service models expressed in the LEMMA modelling ecosystem for microservice architectures to source code in the Jolie microservice programming language. Specifically, our work extends previous efforts on the generation of Jolie code to the inclusion of the LEMMA service modelling layer. We also contribute an implementation of our translation, given as an extension of the LEMMA2Jolie tool, which enables the practical application of our encoding. As a result, LEMMA2Jolie now supports a software development process whereby microservice architectures can first be designed by microservice developers in collaboration with domain experts in LEMMA, and then be automatically translated into Jolie APIs. Our tool can thus be used to enhance productivity and improve design adherence.

Towards Self-Architecting Autonomic Microservices

Authors: Claudio Guidi


Abstract
Autonomic computing is a key challenge for system engineers. It promises to address issues related to system configuration and maintenance by leaving the responsibility of configuration and reparation to the components themselves. If considered in the area of microservices, it could help in fully decoupling executing platforms from microservices because they permit to avoid coupling at the level of non functional features. In this paper, I explore the case of self-architecting autonomic microservices through the illustration of a proof of concept. The key points and the main challenges of such an approach are discussed.

Correct-By-Construction Microservices with Model-Driven Engineering: The Case for Architectural Pattern Conformance Checking and Pattern-Conform Code Generation

Authors: Florian Rademacher


Abstract
Patterns are a common metaphor in software engineering that denotes reusable solutions for recurring software engineering problems. Architectural patterns focus on the interplay or organization of two or more components of a software system, and are particularly helpful in the design of complex software architectures such as those produced by Microservice Architecture (MSA). This paper presents an approach for the language-based reification of architectural MSA patterns. To this end, we introduce a method to flexibly retrofit LEMMA (Language Ecosystem for Modeling Microservices) with support for modeling and implementing architectural MSA patterns. The method relies on the (i) specification of aspects to reify pattern applications in MSA models; (ii) validation of pattern applications; and (iii) code generation from correct pattern applications. Consequently, it contributes to correct-by-construction microservices by abstracting from the complexity of pattern implementations, yet still enabling their automated production with Model-Driven Engineering. We validate our method with the popular Domain Event and Command Query Responsibility Segregation patterns, and assess its applicability for 28 additional patterns. Our results show that LEMMA’s expressivity covers the model-based expression of complex architectural MSA patterns and that its model processing facilities support pattern-specific extensions such that conformance checking and pattern-conform code generation can be modularized into reusable model processors.

Applying QoS in FaaS Applications: A Software Product Line Approach

Authors: Pablo Serrano-Gutierrez, Inmaculada Ayala, and Lidia Fuentes


Abstract
A FaaS system offers numerous advantages for the developer of microservices-based systems since they do not have to worry about the infrastructure that supports them or scaling and maintenance tasks. However, applying quality of service (QoS) policies in this kind of application is not easy. The high number of functions an application can have, and its various implementations introduce a high variability that requires a mechanism to decide which functions are more appropriate to achieve specific goals. We propose a Software Product Line based approach that uses feature models that model the application’s tasks and operations, considering the family of services derived from the multiple functions that can perform a specific procedure. Through an optimisation process, the system obtains an optimal configuration that it will use to direct service requests to the most appropriate functions to meet specific QoS requirements.
