● FTP
You are NOT limited to the list above.
Requirements for the approaches:

● Can be used to request and provide data
● Not text files, CSV files, or other similar approaches involving file reads/writes
Complete the following:
a. Which approach did you spike?
NameOfMicroservicesCommunicationPipe
b. Get the approach working. Upload screenshots that show the approach being used to
send and receive this message: “A message from CS361”
