vFunction Refactoring Engine Module
Refactor Monoliths into Microservices
vFunction Refactoring Engine Module is an application modernization add-on to vFunction Architectural Observability Manager that automates the creation and extraction of new microservices from Java and .NET monolithic applications, generates new APIs, and updates aging frameworks.

Application Modernization Is a Process, Not a Project
Application modernization projects have been slow, cost prohibitive and risky – for application owners and the business alike. “Big bang” projects most often fail, exceed budget and timelines, and may never complete.
Lifting and shifting to the cloud is a great start but does not take advantage of the true value of cloud native architectures that offer much higher degrees of scalability, elasticity, agility, and engineering velocity.
Continuous application modernization enables:
- Incremental modernization improvements
- Technical debt remediation over time
- Agile integration of architect-driven modernization stories
- User-prioritized microservice extraction
- Modernization progress in-line with business needs
vFunction Refactoring Engine Module – Transform Monoliths Into Microservices
Refactor, re-architect, or rewrite your complex monolithic applications into microservices to restore engineering velocity and increase application scalability. Iteratively design and deploy improvements to the architecture via the vFunction Studio to untangle dependencies at the business logic level and automate the Strangler Fig Pattern for incremental and controlled deployment.
Using observability, static analysis, AI, and graph theory clustering algorithms, automatically identify optimal business-domain microservices.
Create new RESTful APIs required for new services and service boundaries. Generate new client libraries for shared common service use.
Design services using the interactive UI design studio. Refine service boundaries, automatically refactor classes, and assign code to common libraries.
Upgrade aging application frameworks including older releases of Java EE application server frameworks, e.g., WebSphere, WebLogic, JBoss, aging releases of Spring, or web frameworks such as Struts.
Automate the extraction of miniservice or microservice code. Eliminate dead code and deploy efficient, compact microservices.
Build a continuous modernization process. Incrementally modernize with vFunction Architectural Observability Manager and then extract microservices with Refactoring Engine as business and release cycles allow.
