Event versioning

In its lifetime events may change. In order to track those changes Ecotone provides possibility of versioning events.

use Ecotone\Modelling\Attribute\Revision;

class MyEvent
    public string $id;

Value given with Revision attribute will be stored by Ecotone in events metadata. Attribute is used only when event is saved in event store. In order to read it, you can access events metadata, e.g. in event handler.

use Ecotone\Messaging\MessageHeaders;

class MyEventHandler
    public function handle(MyEvent $event, array $metadata) : void
        if ($metadata[MessageHeaders::REVISION] !== 2) {
            return; // this is not the revision I'm looking for
        // the force is strong with this one

Revision applies to messages in general (also commands and queries). However, for now it is used only when events gets saved.

You don't have to define Revision for your current events. Ecotone will set it's value to 1 by default. Also, if not defined in the class, already saved events will be read with Revision 1.
