Getting Started

First, you’ll need add dewdrop to your pom:


Next, you need to make sure you’re running EventStore locally. To do this you can go download the EventStore client and run it. Or, you can run a docker instance which is included in the repository. To start the docker instance, run the following command in the dewdrop directory:

docker-compose up -d

We are also assuming that most people getting going with the project are running it inside a dependency injected framework like Spring Boot. If this is the case you need to create a class that wraps your DI application context. For the case of Spring Boot you’d create a class that implements DependencyInjectionAdapter and expose it as a bean.

public class DewdropDependencyInjection implements DependencyInjectionAdapter {
        private ApplicationContext applicationContext;
        public DewdropDependencyInjection(ApplicationContext applicationContext) {
                this.applicationContext = applicationContext;

        public <T> T getBean(Class<?> clazz) {
            return (T) applicationContext.getBean(clazz);

This lets Dewdrop know that it should use the application context to get the spring managed beans it needs.

The next step is to create a DewdropConfiguration class that will be used to configure the Dewdrop framework.

import java.beans.BeanProperty;

public class DewdropConfiguration {
    ApplicationContext applicationContext;
    public DewdropDependencyInjection dependencyInjection() {
        return new DewdropDependencyInjection(applicationContext);
    public DewdropProperties dewdropProperties() {
        return DewdropProperties.builder()
    public Dewdrop dewdrop() {
        return DewdropSettings.builder()

And that is it! You can now run the application and it will start up the Dewdrop framework.
