AxonIQ Conference

In one day, learn new ways to simplify building, deploying, and running applications at scale. More info & Tickets
Join us for one day of expert talks showcasing how to effectively implement event-driven Microservices with Axon Framework and AxonIQ. We’ll cover the journey from the DDD / CQRS architecture to the runtime, including practical case studies, a live coding session and exploring the landscape of related products. At the end of the day AxonIQ will be taken into Fireside Chat to explain the product suite and discuss the benefits of becoming an AxonIQ user. Whether you’re new to Axon or a longtime user, we encourage you to join us for this conference and meet high quality speakers giving interesting and informative talks using real use cases. You will enjoy highly selective hands on sessions and, most importantly, at the end of the day you will walk away with practical knowledge.

BarclayCard`s journey of breaking down a monolith into Microservices

In the age of Microservices, relying on solid techniques and patterns is an absolute necessity in order to avoid a distributed systems mess. In this session, Premanand Chandrasekaran, VP of Software Engineering at Barclaycard, will show how they make use of patterns such as domain driven design, EDA, CQRS, event sourcing among others to build out a suite of well behaved, opinionated distributed services rapidly and reliably. Specifically, we make use of Axon framework, Spring boot, Netflix OSS among others to deploy high quality production services rapidly.

Property based integration testing for Axon applications

Tim van Heugten will show that property based testing is a good match for Axon applications, and how this is used for integration tests of backend services at Unit and integration tests have been largely implemented using scenarios. Small examples of specified input that, when applied to the system, should match up to a specific output. But there is alternative; With property based testing the system is fed a random input. Then, the output is validated against certain contracts, or properties, that should hold for all inputs. This replaces the tedious task of working out and implementing the scenarios by the more challenging (and complex) task of specifying the properties. Or alternatively, for properties that cannot be described both sufficiently generic and sufficiently specific, the system output can be verified using the output of a reference implementation. Axon lends itself well for this method of integration testing, since the input for the system is behavior, in the form of a stream of commands. Axon takes care of applying the commands, while the query side can be used to validate the state, or output, of the system. We use junit-quickcheck ( to generate a random stream of commands as input. These commands are then run through a small module that takes care of dispatching the command, updating a reference model, and verification of the properties. The result is an integration test that covers the command side, the query side, and the persistence layer. These tests contain complex random scenarios, and are easily extendible with new commands and properties to check.
