Axon Framework 3.3 with a Subscription Query API and Kafka Support

by Jan Stenberg Follow 37 Followers on  Jul 19, 2018

Version 3.3 of the Axon framework was recently released with a subscription query API for subscribing to query model updates, a manager for scheduling the publishing of deadline messages, and an Axon-Kafka module allowing for the use of Kafka to send and receive events. An updated version, 3.3.2, has also been released, and for those on version 3.3 an upgrade is strongly recommended.

Experiences from Building an Event-Sourced System with Kafka Streams

by Jan Stenberg Follow 37 Followers on  Jul 05, 2018

At the recent JEEConf conference in Kiev, Amitay Horwitz described how he and his team implemented an event-sourced invoice system, the challenges they experienced after running in production for 2 ½ years, and how they implemented a new design using Kafka Streams. The new design is still under assessment, but they do heavily use Kafka in production.

AxonDB, a New Implementation of an Event Store

by Jan Stenberg Follow 37 Followers on  Feb 27, 2018

AxonDB is a new data storage purpose-built for event sourcing with support for transactions and pushed-based event publishing that recently was released by AxonIQ, the company behind the Axon Framework. To make sure performance is constant, the architecture is specifically targeting reading data — according to AxonIQ the performance is stable even with huge amounts of events stored.

Retroactive and Future Events in an Event Sourced System

by Jan Stenberg Follow 37 Followers on  Feb 09, 2018

When Thomas Pierrain started a new project with an asset management company, one important requirement was the ability to go back in time to understand why they took decisions that today look strange. At the recent DDD Europe 2018 conference in Amsterdam, Pierrain discussed his experiences when building an event sourced system that included some temporal challenges.

Events Should Be a First-Class Tool for Developers

by Jan Stenberg Follow 37 Followers on  Jan 29, 2018

We should use events much more often in software systems, Randy Shoup declared in a recent blog post about how events should be first-class citizens in systems. He believes we often underestimate the value of events as a tool. One example is that they can help us decouple parts of a system so that we can reason about them independently.

Event Sourcing in an Unreliable World

by Jan Stenberg Follow 37 Followers on  Nov 30, 2017

Examples of event sourced systems are often from process-oriented domains, like e-commerce, with incoming commands that generate events. But there are domains without processes that are intrinsically unreliable where we are collecting events from external event sources with transports that are unreliable, Lorenzo Nicora explained at the recent Microservices Conference µCon London 2017.

Designing Event Sourced Microservices

by Jan Stenberg Follow 37 Followers on  Nov 12, 2017

Event sourced microservices is an area that hasn’t been explored nearly as much as it should be, Greg Young claimed at the recent Microservices Conference µCon London 2017, but he also strongly emphasized that you should not event source all your microservices. Instead, he recommends looking at individual services and applying the event sourcing pattern to services that actually benefit from it.

Event Architectures and Event Streaming

by Jan Stenberg Follow 37 Followers on  Sep 06, 2017

When moving from a monolithic system to a distributed or microservices system, you commonly also move from a single source of truth in one database to many databases and thus many sources of truth. Using an event architecture and persisting all events as a stream can give back the single source of truth, Ben Stopford claims in one of a series of blog posts about events, event streams and Kafka.

Selecting an Event Architecture

by Jan Stenberg Follow 37 Followers on  Aug 24, 2017

When designing a distributed system, maybe based on microservices, and you are considering an event architecture, there are several models and technologies available. When choosing how to implement the architecture the non-functional requirements are a main factor, David Dawson claims when describing different styles of event architectures in a recent blog post.
