Domain Driven Design: Bounded Context

Microservice architecture borrows many classical concepts. Bounded Context is one of the most important ideas of domain-driven design.

A context means specific responsibility. Bounded Context implies a responsibility with explicit boundaries.

Reading from a few blogs, the bounded context means more of real-world identification of responsibilities. It’s seeing things from different altitudes: An application is a bounded context. A level below, it’s UI, backend are BC.

Overall, seeing a BC as a cell (like an organic cell) came more naturally. A cell defines a specific set of responsibilities. It has an explicit interface to accept/ reject model (communication data) requests.

Why Bother Bounded Context

  • BC promotes loses coupling and high cohesion.
