Monolithic Application Immediate Decomposing, Sino-US Technology Experts Explore Hengtian Micro Service Engine

On March 5th, the “Hengtian Innovation Forum: Micro Services Architecture” sponsored by Hengtian and NECINA was held in the form of an online webinar. Strong interest and heated discussion amongst the audience arose when Hengtian Chief Architect Minghua Li shared his experience and insights in the area of Micro Services framework design, including a demonstration on decomposing a java system to Micro Services in 14 seconds. Dozens of technical talents from America and China joined in the discussion, including Mr. Albert Ma, the Chief Innovation Officer of Hengtian.

Traditional architecture is limited by its inability to adapt to the rapidly changing business requirements placed upon it. To counteract these limitations, Micro Services has been developed as a new technology which is capable of deploying applications and services in the cloud as well as supporting continuous delivery and the deployment of large, complex applications, and helps companies respond to business changes more timely. To solve the problems that faced during Micro Services development, testing, and operation, Hengtian has developed an all-encompassing solution: The Hengtian Micro Service Engine, which outshines traditional architecture in its ability to migrate rapidly, develop easily, deploy automatically, and operate efficiently.

In the webinar, Minghua Li explained in detail the technical features and decomposition logic of the Hengtian Micro Service Engine and its application in complex cases. He particularly focused on demonstrating the highly innovative single application to Micro Services tool. The split speed is so fast it could even be called “next level”! According to the system request-call-response chain, the decomposition is carried out automatically based on algorithms and the results can then be displayed visually. The direct deployment and operation of the Micro Services after the split can significantly improve the response speed and overall stability of the system.

Hengtian has always devoted itself to developing innovative products to help companies solve technical difficulties. In addition to its Micro Service engine, Hengtian also has developed many other innovative technologies, including an intelligent source code analysis and conversion platform called BlueMorpho. BlueMorpho aims at using technologies such as artificial intelligence, language parsers and NLP to automatically analyze and transform legacy system code. For example, in automatically converting from Cobol to Java, BlueMorpho is able to reduce developer’s code analysis time for by 50% and save enterprises 30% of large system maintenance costs. Another innovative technology is Alpha Test, a platform-wide automation tool developed independently by Hengtian. This tool provides automated test support and implementation to websites, desktops, mobile and interface applications, which is a one-step automation implementation tool to solve all of the client’s software test automation needs.
