  • Publication number: 20240069976
    Abstract: A serverless computing-based, continuous gateway watch of a data store for data change process is provided. The process includes the gateway interface of the computing environment receiving a watch request from a user system to monitor the data store for data change. Based on receiving the watch request, the gateway interface invokes a serverless setup service to establish a connection between the gateway interface and the data store of the computing environment to be monitored for data change. Based on receiving, at the gateway interface, a data change indication from the data store, the gateway interface invokes a serverless message process service to mutate the data change indication from the data store into a mutated data change message indicative of a data change at the data store for return to the user system pursuant to the watch request, with the serverless message process service terminating thereafter.
