Event Adapter with akka-persistence-cassandra

Overview

You can find the code and instruction to run the example at GitHub.

cqlsh

You firstly need configuration to tie up MyEventAdapter under the example package, and Event under the same example package.

cassandra-journal {
  event-adapters {
    tagging-adapter = "example.MyEventAdapter"
  }
  event-adapter-bindings {
    "example.Event" = tagging-adapter
  }
}

In MyPersistentAcdtor, when persist method is called, an Event is sent to CassandraJournal.

override def receiveCommand: Receive = {
  case Command(i) ⇒
    persist(Event(i)) { 
      ...
    }
}

Then CassandraJournal invokes the toJournal method of MyEventAdapter.scala.

override def toJournal(event: Any): Any = {
    val tags = Set("mytag1", "mytag2")
    Tagged(event, tags)
  }  
}

After that, Tagged(event, tags) is serialized to Array[Byte]

In more detail, CassandraJournal's def serializeEvent() method serializes payload (in this example, Tagged(event, tags)) to Array[Byte] with Akka serializer. After that, CassandraJournal prepares a CQL statement to set all necessary columns in Cassandra, including the event column to hold the binary of Tagged(event, tags).

Instruction to run the example

> git clone https://github.com/richardimaoka/resources.git
> cd resources
> cd event-adapter-tagging-cassandra
> sbt
> runMain example.Main

Output
