Pattern: Command Query Responsibility Segregation (CQRS)


How to implement queries in a microservice architecture


Split the application into two parts: the command-side and the query-side. The command-side handles create, update, and delete requests and emits events when data changes. The query-side handles queries by executing them against one or more materialized views that are kept up to date by subscribing to the stream of events emitted when data changes.
