This lab represented a key next step in our migration process. We now started the gradual move to decompose our monolith into microservices. The key element of this model is our ability to run these new microservices side-by-side with code that remains in our monolith. In this scenario, we separated out the Order service, moving it to a serverless microservice. We also moved the data it manages over to the new environment. Our API Gateway was then setup to direct traffic selective to the microservice or the monolith (depending on which functionality was being accessed).
You have now completed Lab 3.
