The Axon release Party, which was organized on Thursday last week, has been a great success. The event was at the Observant in Amersfoort and with 40 curious enthusiastic attendees we kicked the day off with a nice lunch. Following that, Allard gave an introduction on CQRS and presented the latest features of Axon 2. E.Novation and Aktive Reply presented their case studies, showing how they used Axon in their applications. Finally, an panel of experts was interrogated during the Panel Discussions. A nice cold drink and some snacks gave the final touch to the day.
On February 28th 2013, Trifork will organize the Axon 2 launch seminar. During this seminar, visitors will be introduced to CQRS and Axon Framework, of which version 2 was released just a few weeks ago. The seminar will be an afternoon packed of technical insight, case studies and panel discussions, whereby we look forward to […]
After laying the ground work for this release about a year ago, we now proudly announce the next major release of Axon Framework! The 2.0 release is a big step forward compared to the previous version, as it contains a thorough restructuring of components, making it even easier to build scalable and extensible applications.
Axon 2 has hit an important milestone today, as we have published the first Release Candidate. This release marks a major milestone towards the final 2.0 release, expected early January. All features on the roadmap have been implemented in this release. The coming weeks, these features will be refined and fine-tuned for optimal performance and […]
Some people on the Axon Framework mailing list were asking for more basic samples, preferably using something like vert.x. Since I am familiar with Axon as well as vert.x I thought I could help out. Therefore I have created a very basic application based on vert.x using the Axon Framework. The application is all about […]
Introduction In a previous blog post we introduced the Spring Insight module that’s part of SpringSource’s tc Server developer edition and gives you, well, insight into what’s taking up the time to process requests in your applications. Insight does this by instrumenting your application at load time using AspectJ: a single call to your application […]
This article explains how the concept of upcasting can be applied to an event-sourced model. Focusing on demultiplexing of events, a new feature in Axon 2.
LMAX, a trading company in the UK, recently open sourced one of their core components: the Disruptor. This component allows reduces execution overhead by removing the necessity for locks, while still keeping processing order guarantees. A pretty ingenious piece of engineering, if you ask me. I tried to apply the disruptor to the Axon Command […]
Some time ago we started adding modules or classes to axon that were not really the core of the system. The most important one of them is a MongoDB based event store. The amount of testing of this module was not as high as the other parts. It has not yet been tested in a […]
It has been an exciting year. Little over a year ago, I started developing a framework to make it easier for developers to implement a highly scalable en extensible architecture. The first public Axon release (0.3) came out in April 2010, and was far from feature complete. Now, almost a year later, Axon has proven […]
