Smart-Cloud: A Framework for Cloud Native Applications Development
The primary goals of the framework are to enable the development of such applications to be more rapid, efficient, reliable, and straightforward. Smart-Cloud consists of a novel combination of reusable components that includes API's, services, and application framework. These components were designed and developed using cutting-edge architectural styles, best practices, and patterns such as the microservices architectural style and the twelve-factor-app. The framework adopts the metadata-driven design to enable dynamic and static generation of single artifacts, end-to-end features, and full applications. Moreover, it consists of a cloud-based platform that utilizes the model-driven development approach to enable the use of the framework without writing code. The framework also follows the software product lines approach of enabling users to develop new projects efficiently.
