No such thing as a modular monolith?

Some time ago, I wrote about how there’s no such thing as a microservice. I explained how the term ‘microservices’ is a shorthand for ‘microservice architecture’, which is an architectural style that structures the application as a loosely coupled set consisting of two or more components (a.k.a. services). As a result, a service cannot exist in isolation; it must be part of a larger whole.


In this article, I explain why there’s no such thing as a modular monolith and why the term ‘domain-oriented component architecture’ might be a better choice. Read more.
