Java Champion Peter Lawrey spoke to JAXenter editor Gabriela Motroc at JAX 2016 about when developers should use microservices and when they should choose a monolithic architecture. One of the key learnings from this interview is the following: “If you say ‘everyone has to use microservices’, you may end up using it even when it doesn’t make sense.”
