The current episode of the videocast software-architektur.tv is dedicated to a special architectural approach. The host Eberhard Wolff presents the self-contained systems (abbreviated: SCS, in German about “closed systems”). These divide a system into several small web applications. The basic idea is to split the functionality into many independent systems. As a result, the system logic consists of the interaction of several smaller software systems. The approach is an answer to the problem of large monoliths that can no longer be maintained due to their size and complexity.
Solving typical architecture problems with SCS
Unlike most other architectural approaches, SCS are designed to solve typical architectural problems. To do this, they prescribe various architectural elements that have already proven themselves in many large and medium-sized projects. Dividing a large system into smaller, self-contained units follows certain rules. In this episode, Wolff discusses self-contained systems, what constitutes this approach and in which situations it is particularly useful. The talk is available as a live stream here and on YouTube at the usual time:
