The idea is very simple. Microservices have evolved from SOA (Service Oriented Architecture), trying to solve the issues around SOA and making the services truly atomic, independent, fine grained and composable. You should and you could build complex event processing (CEP) and businesses processes using a collection of chained Microservices. This is exactly what RoboMQ Microservices platform has been providing. Using RoboMQ Message Oriented Middleware (MOM) for IoT and ThingsConnect multi-protocol API gateway you could build microservices on RoboMQ Microservices Platform. You simply take a set of microservices and chain them over message queues and you have a working business flow. This chaining is done by configuration files that connect the Microservices running on the cloud or on-premise using RoboMQ message oriented middleware.
We are happy and proud to announce that we have launched RoboMQ “Integration Flow Designer” this week after months of development and testing.

Integration Flow Designer packs all the benefits available with Microservices, message queues, and ThingsConnect suite of adapters and connectors into a simple visual package for rapid development of integration flows.
Now you can connect any device, sensor, SaaS application or enterprise system using any protocol by the simple drop-and-drop of nodes from a palette.
