The Architecture Styles

This architecture implementations are a software that encapsulate Business Rules in Use Cases and the Enteprise Rules in Entities. We prevent our software to be coupled from technology details like User Interface, Data Access frameworks or Web Servers. And there is some concepts which guided us:

Concept Description
DDD This Bounded Context of this project contains the Ubiquitious Language around Account Balance and designed inside Domain Layer and Application layer. We use the Eric Evans terms like Entities, Value Object, Aggregates Root and Domain Events.
SOLID The SOLID principles are all over the the solution.
Entity-Boundary-Interactor (EBI) The software implementation is agnostic from technology, framework, or database. The result is focus on the use cases with input/output ports.
Microservice Designed around the Business Domain, having Continous Delivery and Independent Deployment.

Sample applications

Run dotnet new -i Paulovich.Caju then try the following commands.

Clean Architecture Solution with basic use cases:

dotnet new caju \
  --architecture-style clean \
  --use-cases basic

Hexagonal Architecture Solution with all use cases:

dotnet new caju \
  --architecture-style hexagonal \
  --use-cases full

Empty Event-Sourcing Solution:

dotnet new caju \
  --architecture-style eventsourcing \
  --use-cases empty

For olher solution types check out the Caju Samples folder.


There are switches to generate your awesome application with your needs. Try after dotnet new caju:

Switch Default Value Options
--architecture-style clean clean hexagonal eventsourcing
--use-cases full full basic readonly none
--user-interface webapi webapi consoleapp wcf none
--data-access mongo mongo entityframework dapper none
--service-bus kafka kafka none
--tips true true false
--skip-restore false true false

Run dotnet new caju --help for the complete list of switches.
