Young developers looking at the computer screens with code lines; Aggregates in Domain-driven design

Domain Driven Design: aggregates implementation

Aggregates are guards for business principles in domain implementation. They merge several contexts into one, transparent object which unifies the interface for aggregated stuff. For example we can have many entities and value objects nested in aggregate. Our security guy will provide a mechanism for checking aggregated data consistency and integrity. Using policies and specifications (which I described in the previous chapter of the series Domain Driven Design: domain building blocks) we can ensure immutability of business assumptions.

Domain Driven Design: domain building blocks

From previous chapters we already know strategic concepts of Domain Driven Design. We have knowledge on how to design our system and now we need to know how to implement designed solutions. In the DDD world we can distinguish many building blocks - components which are useful in a part of technical Domain Driven Design.
