JeroMF: A Software Development Framework for Building Distributed Applications Based on Microservices and JeroMQ
Date of Award
Master of Science (MS)
This report describes a project involving the design, implementation, and testing of a software development framework, called JeroMF, that can help developers create scalable distributed applications based on a microservice architecture and that uses JeroMQ (a native Java implementation of ZeroMQ) for message passing. JeroMF provides an execution framework and extensible components for implementing processes, services, communication channels, messages, communication statistics, and encryption. Applications built with JeroMF do not require a message broker or any other middleware processes. However, they may include an optional Service Registry that can facilitate for service discovery and secure communications. The Service Registry itself was implemented with JeroMF and is included as part of the JeroMF distribution. Thorough unit, integration and system test cases exist for every component of JeroMF. For validation, JeroMF was used to re-design and re-implement a distributed health-care application with 13 separate types of services and very strict security requirements.
