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 […]

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.
