The law of “welded monoliths”

This is a continuation that follows the observation of my previous post, the "oil-lamp" law:

Given a system that is the result of integrating a certain number of monoliths, no upgrade occurs in the system’s monoliths, or their components, until the system is end-of-lifed.

By the way, your microservice is most likely a monolith.
