Europa Overview

A sample dotnet core 2.0 application demonstrating messaging, CQRS and microservices.


  • Web: ASP.NET Core MVC
  • Micro-services: CQRS Style commands and queries

Write Service

  • Writes are made to a Postgres database
  • Dapper is used for sql execution
  • In a master-slave arrangement these changes would be written to the master

Query Service

  • Reads are made against postgres database views
  • Dapper is used for sql execution
  • In a master-slave arrangement these reads would be made against the slave

Search Service

  • In response to events occuring, a Solr search index is updated.
  • In response to queries, Solr is searched and its results returned.

Feed Service

  • Handles podcast feed retrieval / refreshes.

Messaging Infrastructure

  • Messages are defined as

    • IEvent: Raised to commicate that an event has occurred within the domain.
    • ICommand: Send to change somthing in the domain.
    • IQuery: Requested to retrieve information about the domain
  • Dispatchers dispatch messages to the rabbit bus

    • ICommandDispatcher, IQueryDispatcher and IEventDispatcher
  • Executors execute a message that has been received.

    • Starting a new scope
    • Resolving the appropriate handler
    • Executing the handler by passing in the message to be handled.

Other Infrastructure

  • Database maintenance performed using FluentMigrator
  • Message validation performed using FluentValidation
  • Unit of Work implementation to perform multiple Dapper Sql operations in the context of a transaction.
  • Unit testing using xUnit, Fluent Assertions and Moq.
