Me & the Onion Architecture

leave a comment »

Jump into ASP.NET MVC 2 in Action Chapter 23 which talk about an integration of ASP.NET MVC and NHibernate the author introduce us to the Onion Architecture.

Using this architecture we simply structure our solution like:

  • Core, storing POCO & various Interfaces
  • Infrastructure, talking with underline or external system
  • IntegrationTests, generally speaking this would test Infrastructure functionality
  • UI

Let focus on the Infrastructure because it is the main actor in this architecture; the following role given to this layer

  • Mapping between Core class & Database by talking through NHibernate (I agree)
  • Responsible for injecting NHibernate session into web session with NHibernateModule: IHttpModule (I agree)
  • Contain abstract RepositoryBase<T>: IRepository<T> (I agree)
  • Contain all Interfaces ¬†implmentation hmm ? isn’t it too much for an Infrastructure? what about
    • Core
    • Infrastructure
    • Services
    • IntegrationTests
    • UI

I will do more investigation (Pros, Cons) but love to hear your take on this, if you haven’t read the chapter yet do it now.
