The top level class for a design is the EventSourcingModel class. This has properties to identify the event sourcing model in use (name, description) and then contains a collection of AggregateModel class that identify the Aggregates (aggregate roots) in use in the system.

  • Name - The unique name by which the event sourcing model is known. (This is used to refer to this model in code and also in the default filename when saving the model)
  • Description - The documentation description of the model represented by this event sourcing model.
  • Aggregates - The set of aggregates belonging to this event sourcing model.

Code generation
This class can be populated from the .cqrsx (CQRS Model in XML) file e.g.:
