Eventuate application architecture

An Eventuate application consists of four types of modules, each with different roles and responsibilities.

The following diagram shows the architecture of an Eventuate application:

An Eventuate application consists of the following types of modules:

  • Command-side module
  • Query-side view updater module
  • Query-side view query module module
  • Outbound gateway module

Note that this is the logical architecture of the application. The modules can either be deployed together as a monolithic application or separately as standalone microservices.

Command-side modules

The command-side of an Eventuate application consists of one or more command-side modules. A command-side module creates and updates aggregates in response to external update requests (for example, HTTP POST, PUT, and DELETE requests) and events published by command-side aggregates. A command-side module consists of following components :

  • Aggregates - Implement most of the business logic and are persisted using event sourcing
  • Services - Process external requests by creating and updating aggregates
  • Event handlers - Process events by creating and updating aggregates

Query-side modules

The query-side of an Eventuate application maintains one or more materialized (CQRS) views of command-side aggregates. Each view has two modules:

  • View updater module - Subscribes to events and updates the view
  • View query module - Handles query (for example, HTTP GET) requests by querying the view

Outbound gateway modules

An outbound gateway module processes events by invoking external services.
