Class CascadedStoreEvent<E extends CascadedStoreEvent<E>>

Type Parameters:
E - the type of the event subclass.
All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Localized
Direct Known Subclasses:

public abstract class CascadedStoreEvent<E extends CascadedStoreEvent<E>> extends StoreEvent
An event which, when occurring on a parent resource, is also fired by all children resources. For example, when an Aggregate (typically a data store) is closed, a Close­Event is automatically fired by all resources that are components of the aggregate. This is similar to "cascade delete" in SQL databases.

Difference between Store­Event and Cascaded­Store­Event

By default Store­Events are propagated from children to parents. For example, when a Warning­Event occurs in a child resource, all listeners registered on that resource are notified, then all listeners registered on the parent resource, and so forth until the root resource. All those listeners receive the same Warning­Event instance, i.e. the event source is always the resource where the warning occurred.

By contrast Cascaded­Store­Event are fired in the opposite direction, from parent to children. Furthermore, each child creates its own Cascaded­Store­Event. For example if a Close­Event is fired in a Data­Store, then it causes all resources of that data store to fire their own Close­Event declaring themselves as the event source.
