Majority of the sections in this site are about how to build, deploy and manage services. This section will address microservices architecture and best practices from consumer perspective.
Unlike monolithic JavaEE web service with only one client and one server, there are many microservices involved in one external request and client to server communication efficiency is very important to overall latency.

The following contains architecture, design and best practices.
- Client Module
- Service Discovery
- Load Balance
- Light Router
