How to build a microservice in ASP.NET Core

This post was originally published on Info World

Microservices architecture describes a collection of loosely coupled, extensible, independently deployable services that interact with each other through well-defined interfaces.

This article examines microservices architecture, its benefits and drawbacks, and then illustrates how we can implement a simple microservice in ASP.NET Core. In future articles, we’ll complete our microservices-based application by implementing an API gateway and interactions between our microservices. 

To use the code examples provided in this article, you should have Visual Studio 2022 installed in your system. If you don’t already have a copy, you can download Visual Studio 2022 here.

What is microservices architecture?

The term microservices is used to describe a software architecture in which a large application is split into a collection of small, independently deployable, autonomous services. Each microservice is designed to accomplish a narrow set of tasks and is independently deployable and maintainable.

In other words, a microservices-based application is split into multiple small, discrete, decentralized, loosely coupled, and independently deployable services that work together as a cohesive whole.

Microservices-based applications can scale easily, and they are easier to maintain, because you can change the source code of one service of your application independently of all the others, without having to redeploy the entire application. Instead, you can redeploy
