Chapter 9: Understanding Domain-Driven Design

The ABP Framework project's main goal is to introduce an architectural approach to application development and provide the necessary infrastructure and tools to implement that architecture with best practices.

ABP's entity, repository, domain service, domain event, specification, and many other concepts are directly mapped to the tactical patterns of DDD.

Since DDD is a core part of the ABP application development architecture, this book has a dedicated section, Part 3, Implementing Domain-Driven Design, for DDD that consists of three chapters. In this book, I will focus on practical implementation details rather than the theoretical and strategic approaches and concepts of DDD. The examples will be mostly based on the EventHub project that was introduced...
