Axon Framework - Spring Cloud Extension

Maven Central Build Status SonarCloud Status

Axon Framework is a framework for building evolutionary, event-driven microservice systems, based on the principles of Domain Driven Design, Command-Query Responsibility Segregation (CQRS) and Event Sourcing.

As such it provides you the necessary building blocks to follow these principles. Building blocks like Aggregate factories and Repositories, Command, Event and Query Buses and an Event Store. The framework provides sensible defaults for all of these components out of the box.

This set up helps you create a well structured application without having to bother with the infrastructure. The main focus can thus become your business functionality.

This repository provides an extension to the Axon Framework: Spring Cloud. It provides functionality to distribute command message between Axon application through means of a Spring Cloud implementation of the CommandRouter and CommandBusConnector. As it follow Spring Cloud's standard, several implementation of Spring Cloud (e.g. Eureka, Consul) can be used to fulfill the routing job. This extension should be regarded as a partial replacement of Axon Server, since it only cover the command routing part.

The reference guide contains a separate chapter for all the extensions. The Spring Cloud extension description can be found here.
