Components

A component is a modular program or service that is (primarily) independent of other programs or systems in/on which they are hosted, and satisfies the responsibilities of a SitecoreDXG role. By default, a fully-functional SitecoreDXG ecosystem includes the following components:

  1. SitecoreUML Service for Sitecore: a service endpoint installed on a Sitecore application (PaaS or non-PaaS) as a Sitecore package that satisfies the serializer role

  2. SitecoreDXG Middleman: a program that satisfies the serializer role - can be replaced with a own custom middleman implementation, though the SitecoreDXG RabbitMQ Middleman is included with SitecoreDXG for rapid setup and use

  3. SitecoreDXG Generation Service: a node-based service (installable as a Windows service) that initializes and loads the trigger and completion handler plugins defined in the configuration, and satisfies the generator role by performing the generation when called
