Have you ever thought of why internet cookies are called cookies? 🤔 Actually, it was coined from the term ‘magic cookies’ that derived from a fortune cookie 🍪; a cookie with an embedded message, just like the real cookie with some embedded crumble on it. It’s interesting, isn’t it?

Monolithic Architecture

The literal meaning of Monolith is something huge, like a single giant stone. In the same way, the Monolithic architecture is the traditional unified model for the software development where the application is single-tiered in which the user interface and data access code are combined into a single program from a single platform.

The monolithic application can be also comprised of a series of components within a single platform such as User Authorization, Presentation View, Business Module, Persistence Layer, Integration Layer, etc. …

It is very common practice to restrict your development environment with some sort of username/password authentication so that the visitors has to authenticate first before landing into the website. For this purpose, HTTP basic authentication comes really handy, it is a simple response mechanism with which a server can request authentication information (userId and password) from a client, if the client provides correct credentials then the server serves the protected content otherwise sends authorization error with 401 status code.
