The persistence layer in SharpMessaging

I’m working on a messaging system in .NET. It’s purpose is to allow you to use reliable (and transactional) messaging inside your application without the need of an external server. This post is about the persistence layer (i.e. file storage). It can handle somewhere between 100 000 and 300 000 messages per second depending on the configuration.

Running services in long lived applications in .NET

You have probably created a windows service or other types of applications where you have code which need to be run in the background to not block the main thread. To do that you have different types of solutions in .NET, for instance Threads, Timers and Tasks. However, you need to construct them manually, make sure that they do not throw unhandled exceptions etc.

Griffin.Framework provides a simpler solution where you only need to implement a small interface. The library also have full support for your favorite inversion of control container, which enables to to use dependency injection in your application services.

Command/Query library with network and IoC support

Have you read about the Command/Query separation pattern and wondered how hard it would be to get started with it? With Griffin framework you only need a few lines of code to have everything configured, no matter if the messages are being executed in process or executed in a server application somewhere.

Easy and perfomant client/server communication with protobuf-net & Griffin.Framework

ProtoBuf is Googles open serialization format which can be used to serialize objects in a standardized way. With it, different platforms can communicate with a format that is much more efficient than XML. Combine the most popular implementation if it, protobuf-net, with Griffin.Framework and you get an easy and fast way of sending information between processes.

Griffin.Framework – Performant networking in .NET

Griffin.Networking was my attempt to create a Netty inspired library. The library is working pretty well but the internal architecture became a bit complex which I am not really satisfied with. Griffin.Framework can now be considered to be a stable replacement of Griffin.Networking.
