Design principles, architectural smells and refactorings for microservices: A multivocal review

Antonio Brogi, Davide Neri, Jacopo Soldani, Olaf Zimmermann

Potential benefits such as agile service delivery have led many companies to deliver their business capabilities through microservices. Bad smells are however always around the corner, as witnessed by the considerable body of literature discussing architectural smells that possibly violate the design principles of microservices. In this paper, we systematically review the white and grey literature on the topic, in order to identify the most recognised architectural smells for microservices and to discuss the architectural refactorings allowing to resolve them.
