Microservices is an architecture style, in which large complex software applications are composed of one ore more microservices. Each microservice focuses on doing one task representing a small business capability. These microservices can be developed in any programming language and communicate with each other using language-agnostic APIs such as REST or messaging applications such as IBM MQ Light.

This IBM Redbooks Solution Guide gives a broad understanding of this increasingly popular architectural style and show how you can develop applications using the microservices approach with IBM Bluemix.
