This page gives an overview of the Storefront Orchestration microservice for the Infosys Equinox platform.

Overview

The Storefront Orchestration microservice handles interactions among different services in Service-Oriented Architecture. Typically it is a controller that acts as the “orchestrator” of the overall service interactions. This generally follows a request-response type pattern.

The purpose of the microservice is to streamline and optimize frequent and repeatable processes. This ensures accurate and quick end-to-end processing as services can be executed in parallel or asynchronously.
