Stores NServiceBus data in various relational database engines, without the need for an intermediate ORM, using only a configured
For a description of each feature, see the persistence at a glance legend.
|Storage Types||Sagas, Outbox, Subscriptions, Timeouts|
|Transactions||Local database transactions or distributed transactions when available|
|Concurrency control||Optimistic concurrency for correctness + pessimistic concurrency for performance|
|Scripted deployment||SQL scripts generated at compile time, can be promoted outside build directory.|
|Installers||Installers execute the generated scripts, which can be enabled in development.|
- Supports multiple database engines.
- No ORM dependency: can be used with Entity Framework, Dapper, etc.
- Independent tables for each endpoint. No "noisy neighbor" problems.
- Generates DDL scripts at compile time in the build output directory.
- Generated scripts can be promoted outside the build directory and:
- Added to source control.
- Compared using a diff viewer.
- Inspected by DBAs.
- Treated as first-class citizens in operations workflows for installation and deployment.
- Sagas are:
The SQL Persister consists of several NuGet packages.
This packages adds to the MSBuild pipeline and generates the required SQL installation scripts at compile time. It does this by interrogating types (in the target assembly) and attributes (from the
NServiceBus. NuGet package) to infer what scripts to create. It is required for any project where those SQL installation scripts are required. For saga scripts, this is any project that contains saga classes. For timeouts, subscriptions, and outbox scripts, it is the endpoint hosting project. This package has a dependency on the
NServiceBus. NuGet package.
This package contains several parts:
- APIs for manipulating
- Runtime implementations of saga, timeouts, subscriptions, and outbox persisters.
- Attributes used to define compile-time configuration settings. These attributes are interrogated by the
NServiceBus.NuGet Package when generating SQL installation scripts.
Persistence. Sql. MsBuild
- Optionally runs SQL installation scripts at endpoint startup for development purposes. See Installer Workflow.
This package contains the APIs that enable the generation of SQL installation scripts using code, i.e. without using the
NServiceBus. NuGet package.
NServiceBus.Persistence.Sql.ScriptBuilderis not ready for general usage. It was made public and deployed to NuGet primarily to enable the generation of documentation in a repeatable way. For example, it is used to generate the SQL scripts in the MS SQL Server Scripts, MySql Scripts, Oracle Scripts, and PostgreSQL Scripts pages. In future releases, the API may evolve in ways that do not follow semantic versioning. This can be discussed in more detail in the Particular Software discussion forum.
SQL installation scripts are created as a compile-time output alongside a project's binary outputs. Additionally, these scripts can be promoted to a directory under source control so that differences can be easily tracked and analyzed. To learn more, see Controlling Script Generation.
