Abstract

Microservices architecture is a software development style that divides software into several small, independently deployable services. Every service can be invoked by standard protocols such as HTTP, so it can be used on a variety of platforms (e.g. mobile, web, desktop). The diversity of users of microservices-based software causes an increased variation in software requirements. In order to accommodate this variability, we propose a framework for microservices-based software based on the Software Product Line Engineering (SPLE) approach. We call this framework ABS Microservices Framework, as it relies on the Abstract Behavioral Specification (ABS) language development platform that readily supports SPLE. The framework created in this research has shown more flexibility to accommodate software variability than other microservices frameworks. Hence, the ABS Microservices Framework can support the software industry to distribute variable software of high quality and reliability.
