Domain-Driven Design with Java - A Practitioner’s Guide

By: Premanand Chandrasekaran, Karthik Krishnan

Overview of this book

Domain-Driven Design (DDD) makes available a set of techniques and patterns that enable domain experts, architects, and developers to work together to decompose complex business problems into a set of well-factored, collaborating, and loosely coupled subsystems. This practical guide will help you as a developer and architect to put your knowledge to work in order to create elegant software designs that are enjoyable to work with and easy to reason about. You'll begin with an introduction to the concepts of domain-driven design and discover various ways to apply them in real-world scenarios. You'll also appreciate how DDD is extremely relevant when creating cloud native solutions that employ modern techniques such as event-driven microservices and fine-grained architectures. As you advance through the chapters, you'll get acquainted with core DDD’s strategic design concepts such as the ubiquitous language, context maps, bounded contexts, and tactical design elements like aggregates and domain models and events. You'll understand how to apply modern, lightweight modeling techniques such as business value canvas, Wardley mapping, domain storytelling, and event storming, while also learning how to test-drive the system to create solutions that exhibit high degrees of internal quality. By the end of this software design book, you'll be able to architect, design, and implement robust, resilient, and performant distributed software solutions.

An LC issuance application

As discovered in the previous chapter, Kosmo Primo Bank needs us to focus on streamlining the process used for LC application and issuance functions. In this chapter, and indeed the rest of this book, we will strive to understand, evolve, design, and build a software solution to make the process more efficient by replacing the largely manual and error-prone workflows with more simplified processes, based on larger amounts of automation.

We understand that unless you are an expert dealing with international trade, it is unlikely that you will have an intimate understanding of concepts such as LCs. In the upcoming section, we will look at demystifying LCs and how to work with them.
