Simple Azure Table Persistence Usage

NuGet Package: NServiceBus.Persistence.AzureTable (4-pre)
This page targets a pre-release version. Pre-releases are subject to change and samples are not guaranteed to be fully functional.

Prerequisites

Ensure that an instance of the latest Azure Storage Emulator or Azure Cosmos DB Emulator is running.

Projects

SharedMessages

The shared message contracts used by all endpoints.

Client

  • Sends the StartOrder message to Server.
  • Receives and handles the OrderCompleted event.

Server projects

  • Receive the StartOrder message and initiate an OrderSaga.
  • OrderSaga requests a timeout with an instance of CompleteOrder with the saga data.
  • OrderSaga publishes an OrderCompleted event when the CompleteOrder timeout fires.

Persistence config

Configure the endpoint to use Azure Table Persistence.

var useStorageTable = true;
var endpointConfiguration = new EndpointConfiguration("Samples.AzureTable.Simple.Server");

var persistence = endpointConfiguration.UsePersistence<AzureTablePersistence, StorageType.Sagas>();

var connection = useStorageTable ? "UseDevelopmentStorage=true" :
    "TableEndpoint=https://localhost:8081/;AccountName=AzureTableSamples;AccountKey=C2y6yDjf5/R+ob0N8A7Cgv30VRDJIWEHLM+4QDU5DE2nQ9nDuVTqobD4b8mGGyPMbIZnqyMsEcaGQy67XIw/Jw==";

var account = CloudStorageAccount.Parse(connection);
persistence.UseCloudTableClient(account.CreateCloudTableClient());

In the non-transactional mode the saga id is used as a partition key.

Order saga data

public class OrderSagaData :
    ContainSagaData
{
    public Guid OrderId { get; set; }
    public string OrderDescription { get; set; }
}

Order saga

public class OrderSaga :
    Saga<OrderSagaData>,
    IAmStartedByMessages<StartOrder>,
    IHandleTimeouts<CompleteOrder>
{
    static ILog log = LogManager.GetLogger<OrderSaga>();

    protected override void ConfigureHowToFindSaga(SagaPropertyMapper<OrderSagaData> mapper)
    {
        mapper.MapSaga(saga => saga.OrderId).ToMessage<StartOrder>(msg => msg.OrderId);
    }

    public Task Handle(StartOrder message, IMessageHandlerContext context)
    {
        var orderDescription = $"The saga for order {message.OrderId}";
        Data.OrderDescription = orderDescription;
        log.Info($"Received StartOrder message {Data.OrderId}. Starting Saga");

        var shipOrder = new ShipOrder
        {
            OrderId = message.OrderId
        };

        log.Info("Order will complete in 5 seconds");
        var timeoutData = new CompleteOrder
        {
            OrderDescription = orderDescription,
        };

        return Task.WhenAll(
            context.SendLocal(shipOrder),
            RequestTimeout(context, TimeSpan.FromSeconds(5), timeoutData)
        );
    }

    public Task Timeout(CompleteOrder state, IMessageHandlerContext context)
    {
        log.Info($"Saga with OrderId {Data.OrderId} completed");
        MarkAsComplete();
        var orderCompleted = new OrderCompleted
        {
            OrderId = Data.OrderId
        };
        return context.Publish(orderCompleted);
    }
}
