As testers, we are always looking for the best way to increase test coverage to mitigate risks – the switch from monolithic to microservice architecture has helped on that front. With each new microservice that is spun up, we have a better opportunity to test how they interact with each other and how they prevent failure. In this month’s artifact, we’re showing you where testers have traditionally spent their time testing a monolithic architecture and comparing it to where they are spending it in a microservice architecture.
