Hi Richard,

first of all I want to thank you for your book: It is really of great help for me starting with micro services.

The example regarding pattern matchin was a little bit difficult to understand to me, however. You said "patterns with more properties have precedence over patterns with fewer;". In the example the following is found:

a:0, b:1 maps to microservice A
a:0, c:2 maps to microservice C

I did not see the semantic difference between the two examples, but in one case, A is mapped, in the other case C. Perhaps you should make it more clearer that this lines are the RULES the examples of the next page are matched against?

Thank you a lot in advance.

[By the way, the German word is "Schadenfreude" instead of "Shadenfreude"]

I am looking forward for the next updates of your book.

Best regards,
Thorsten

Thanks Thorsten!

I hope you took no Schadenfreude from my "shadenfreude" smilie

Patterns with the same number of properties can use alphabetical order to disambiguate - I'll review to make this clearer.

Hi Richard,

you are quite busy, aren't you? It took you a whole year to reply smilie

Just kidding, never mind. I looking forward for the next chapters of your book. Great work, by the way.

Best regards,
