No idea if the course is any good but at that price it hardly matters!

To be honest, I've read some time ago Martin Flower's article you linked, and it seems a good answer to all the buzz around microservices based architectures.... an architectural style that i'd like to adopt without falling into a too much fine grained approach. Using different WARS under the same technologic umbrella (Java EE) seemed a good idea, but it may actually turn out to be too much fragmented. I love the idea to be able to build an application focused only on a main task (orderentry for example) without coping too much with other modules,and - why not ? - potentially to be able to play with different frameworks for each module, if needed. Another advantage I see is that one may update a single war (i.e a module), or choose a subset of modules to compose a custom application installation. Of course, the main concern is coordinating the whole thing.. and make it work !
