Microservice and rest concept model?

Hi!

 

I'm quite new to REST services and would like some kind of concept model that includes Microservice, REST, endpoint etc so that I can make sure that I and the rest of our team speaks the right language and that our documentation will be correct. I have Googled, but not found anything. Do you have a spare one?

Thanks, but I can’t find any models in those articles that show how concepts like microservice, endpoint and resource relate to each other.

Hi @Helo; are you looking for a visual model/diagram of how these things relate to each other?

OK; I've attached a high-level visual that I sometimes use to explain the relationship between a RESTful API, a microservice, the service resources and the consuming applications.

 

Let me know if this is a fit, or if there is more specific information you're looking for.

Ah, I see.

 

I found a pretty comprehensive microservices mind map on DZone:

Let me know if this is what you need.
