    Posting Gautam's question for the larger audience and leaving the thread open for suggestions on his below ask :

    Yes we need to containerize the app . However before that we need to break down the app from its current monolithic state to decoupled microservice framework which means to chunk out each functionality and its specific dependencies which would be containerized
    2ndly we need to tackle with how each of the functionalities would be communicating with each other Asynchronous or synchronous way

    I am seeking some sort of technical approach in those line mentioned above , it would be really helpful if you have completed any project of that sort and share with me the guidelines which you have followed in your project

    Thanks & regard
