Abstract

We introduce a novel framework for creating unified application/programmer interface (API)  layers for the microservice architecture. We show that because of this new framework called Arbor, we are able to allow a whole new class of developers to create their infrastructure in the microservice paradigm and in particular allow for high churn development groups (research groups and university institutions with dependence on student developers for instance) to continually update their software infrastructure, without significant additional documentation and refactoring.
