Akka.Persistence.EventStore and Akka.Persistence.EventStore.Query

NuGet Version

Akka Persistence EventStore Plugin is a plugin for Akka Persistence that provides components:

This plugin stores data in a EventStore database and based on EventStore.Client client library for .net45 and EventStore.ClientAPI.NetCore client library for .netstandard2.0.

Installation

From Nuget Package Manager

Install-Package Akka.Persistence.EventStore

From .NET CLI

dotnet add package Akka.Persistence.EventStore

Write Journal plugin

To activate the journal plugin, add the following line to your HOCON config:

akka.persistence.journal.plugin = "akka.persistence.journal.eventstore"

This will run the journal with its default settings. The default settings can be changed with the configuration properties defined in your HOCON config:

Configuration

Example HOCON Configuration

 akka.persistence {
    journal {
        plugin = "akka.persistence.journal.eventstore""
        eventstore {
            connection-string = "ConnectTo=tcp://admin:changeit@localhost:1113; HeartBeatTimeout=500"
            connection-name = "Akka"
        }
    }
}

Adapter

Akka Persistence EventStore Plugin supports changing how data is stored and retrieved. By default, it will serialize the data using Newtonsoft.Json, and populate the Metadata with the following information:

{
  "persistenceId": "p-14",
  "occurredOn": "2018-05-03T10:28:06.3437687-06:00",
  "manifest": "",
  "senderPath": "",
  "sequenceNr": 5,
  "writerGuid": "f8706bba-52a7-4326-a760-990c7f657c46",
  "clrEventType": "System.String, System.Private.CoreLib"
}

If you are happy with the default serialization and metadata, but want to just augment the metadata or data, or do any of the following:

  • Inspect event to add metadata
  • Encrypt data
  • Change the "type" stored in event store

You can inherit from DefaultAdapter and override the ToBytes and ToEvent methods

public class AltAdapter : DefaultAdapter
{
    protected override byte[] ToBytes(object @event, JObject metadata, out string type, out bool isJson)
    {
        var bytes = base.ToBytes(@event, metadata, out type, out isJson);
        
        //Add some additional metadata:
        metadata["additionalProp"] = true;

        //Do something additional with bytes.
        return bytes;

    }
    protected override object ToEvent(byte[] bytes, JObject metadata)
    {
        //Use the metadata to determine if you need to do something additional to the data
        //Do something additional with bytes before handing it off to be deserialized.
        return base.ToEvent(bytes, metadata);
    }         
}

You also have the option of creating a new implemenation of Akka.Persistence.EventStore.IAdapter

public class CustomAdapter : IAdapter
{
    public DefaultAdapter()
    {
    }

    public EventData Adapt(IPersistentRepresentation persistentMessage)
    {
        //Implement
    }

    public IPersistentRepresentation Adapt(ResolvedEvent resolvedEvent, Func<string, IActorRef> actorSelection = null)
    {
        //Implement
    }
}

Whichever direction you go, you will need to override the HOCON to use your new adapter

akka.persistence {
    journal {
        plugin = "akka.persistence.journal.eventstore""
        eventstore {
            class = "Akka.Persistence.EventStore.Journal.EventStoreJournal, Akka.Persistence.EventStore"
            connection-string = "ConnectTo=tcp://admin:changeit@localhost:1113; HeartBeatTimeout=500"
            connection-name = "Akka"
            read-batch-size = 500
            adapter = "Your.Namespace.YourAdapter, Your.Assembly"
        }
    }
}

Akka.Persistence.EventStore.Query

Installation

From Nuget Package Manager

Install-Package Akka.Persistence.EventStore.Query

From .NET CLI

dotnet add package Akka.Persistence.EventStore.Query

Please note that you need to cofigure write jouranl anyways since EventStore Persistance Query reuses connection from that journal. Also, it uses IEventStoreConnection.SubscribeToStreamFrom known as Catch up subscription, this means that each subscription will start new connection under the hood. This is the way how official EventStore client library works.

Read Journal plugin

To activate the journal plugin, add the following line to your HOCON config:

akka.persistence.query.journal.plugin = "akka.persistence.query.journal.eventstore"

This will run the journal with its default settings. The default settings can be changed with the configuration properties defined in your HOCON config:

HOCON Configuration

  • write-plugin - Absolute path to the write journal plugin configuration entry that this query journal will connect to. If undefined (or "") it will connect to the default journal as specified by the akka.persistence.journal.plugin property.
  • max-buffer-size - How many events to fetch in one query (replay) and keep buffered until they are delivered downstreams. Default value is 500.
  • auto-ack - Should query journal automaticaly aknowladge delivered events to downstream. Default is false. This is reserved for next release for competing consumers query. See this docs for more details

HOCON Configuration Example

akka.persistence.query.journal.eventstore {
    write-plugin = ""
    max-buffer-size = 500
    auto-ack = false
}

Usage

To use standard queries please refer to documentation about Persistence Query on getakka.net website.
