Abstract—Micro-service architecture, a new cloud deployment technique for applications and services, provides an effective means to build an integrated system and helps to realize the universality and compatibility between information systems. Targeted at refactoring a monolithic system, this paper proposes Spring Cloud Framework as a solution to the micro-service architecture. The construction process of the system was detailed with an example of inventory management system. The system was constructed in the following steps: 1) service classification and seam recognition; 2) service development and packaging; 3) Spring Cloud Framework configuration; 4) service deployment. Through the verification of the system functionality, it is confirmed that the micro-service architecture system has stronger robustness than the monolithic system.

Index Terms—Micro-service architecture, integrated system, spring cloud framework, monolithic system.
