  • Q3
    What is the role of middleware in system integration?
    It facilitates communication and data exchange between different systems.
    It serves as a physical layer for hardware components.
    It is primarily responsible for user interface design.
    It regulates user access to software applications.
  • Q4
    Enterprise Integration Patterns (EIP) are primarily concerned with:
    Managing financial resources within an organization
    Marketing products and services to customers
    Optimizing supply chain logistics
    Designing solutions for common integration challenges
  • Q5
    Which of the following is a benefit of adopting Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA)?
    Difficulty in scaling systems
    Reusability and flexibility of components
    Limited interoperability with other systems
    Tight coupling between services
  • Q6
    What are some common challenges organizations face in system integration?
    Limited availability of middleware solutions
    Incompatibility with legacy systems
    Lack of security concerns
    Data interoperability and compatibility issues
  • Q7
    What is the primary advantage of using microservices architecture?
    Centralized management of monolithic applications
    Improved scalability and fault isolation
    Ease of deployment due to fewer components
    Limited flexibility in technology stack
  • Q8
    Which of the following best describes serverless computing?
    Hosting applications on dedicated servers with fixed resources
    Deploying code in stateless compute containers managed by a cloud provider
    Utilizing virtual machines to deploy and manage applications
    Running applications on physical servers maintained by the organization
  • Q9
    Which of the following best describes serverless computing?
    Decoupled components that communicate through events
    Centralized control over event generation and consumption
    Reliance on synchronous communication between components
    Limited scalability options due to tightly coupled services
  • Q10
    What role does containerization play in modern system architecture?
    It facilitates communication between different systems.
    It restricts access to certain resources within an application.
    It enables developers to package applications and dependencies into isolated containers.
    It provides a centralized repository for storing data.
  • Q11
    What is the purpose of orchestration in containerized environments?
    It automates the deployment and management of containers across a cluster of servers.
    It restricts unauthorized access to sensitive data stored within containers.
    It ensures secure communication between containers and external systems.
    It monitors the performance of containers and adjusts resource allocation accordingly.
  • Q12
    How does DevOps contribute to system integration and architecture?
    By promoting collaboration between development and operations teams to automate processes and improve efficiency.
    By emphasizing manual deployment processes to maintain control over the environment.
    By prioritizing siloed workflows and limiting communication between teams.
    By restricting access to production environments to minimize risks.
  • Q13
    What is the main advantage of using RESTful APIs for system integration?
    Dependency on proprietary protocols
    Tight coupling between services
    Simplified communication through HTTP methods
    Tight coupling between services
  • Q14
    How does message queuing benefit system integration?
    It restricts the types of messages that can be exchanged between systems.
    It decouples sender and receiver, allowing asynchronous communication.
    It introduces additional complexity to communication between systems.
    It ensures synchronous communication between components.
  • Q15
    What is the primary purpose of API gateways in microservices architecture?
    To limit access to specific microservices based on user roles.
    To manage and secure communication between clients and microservices.
    To enforce strict version control of microservices.
    To provide a centralized repository for storing microservices.
