CATMA: Conformance Analysis Tool For Microservice Applications

45hth International Conference on Software Engineering - Tool Demo Track (ICSE-Demonstration 2024)


The microservice architecture allows developers to divide the core functionality of their software system into multiple smaller services. However, this architectural style also makes it harder for them to debug and assess whether the system’s deployment conforms to its implementation. We present CATMA, an automated tool that detects non-conformances between the system’s deployment and implementation. It automatically visualizes and generates potential interpretations for the detected discrepancies. Our evaluation of CATMA shows promising results in terms of performance and providing useful insights. CATMA is available at, and a demonstration video is available at
