Bluemix Developer Console – Microservice Pattern

Share this post:

Hello Bluemix Users,

The Bluemix Developer Console an evolution of the Bluemix Mobile Dashboard will follow a pattern based approach to building cloud native applications. The patterns will include but not limited to Mobile, Web, BFF( Backend for Frontend ) and Microservices. Each pattern will have a set of starters that a developer can use to get started. In this blog we will take a look at the Microservice Pattern.

When to use the Microservice Pattern ?

Microservice is an engineering approach focused on decomposing an application into single-function modules with well defined interfaces which are independently deployed and operated by small teams who own the entire lifecycle of the service. Microservices accelerate delivery by minimizing communication and coordination between people while reducing the scope and risk of change.


The Microservice pattern will let a developer select a starter and a language to get started. Once the code is generated for the Microservice, a developer can use the cloud-native plugin in the Bluemix CLI to run the microservice in a local container.

  • Java
  • Node (Coming Soon)
  • Swift (Coming Soon)
  • Cloudant – Use a NoSQL Database
  • Object Storage – Store and retrieve binary data using a cloud based object storage service
