Implements: ICommand


The Command class allows you to call a method or a function.


Creates a new command object and assigns it’s parameters.

public constructor(name: string, schema: Schema, action: IExecutable | (correlationId: string, args: Parameters) => Promise)

  • name: string - command name.
  • schema: Schema - schema to validate command arguments.
  • action: IExecutable - function to be executed by this command.

Instance methods


Executes the command. Before execution it validates args using the defined schema.

Raise ApplicationException when execution fails for whatever reason.
See Parameters

public execute(correlationId: string, args: Parameters): Promise<any>

  • correlationId: string - (optional) transaction id used to trace execution through the call chain.
  • args: Parameters - parameters (arguments) to pass to this command for execution.
  • returns: Promise<any> - execution result


Gets the command name.

public getName(): string

  • returns: string - name of this command.


Validates the command args before execution using the defined schema.

public validate(args: Parameters): ValidationResult[]

  • args: Parameters - parameters (arguments) to validate using this command’s schema.
  • returns: ValidationResult[] - array of ValidationResults or an empty array (if no schema is set).


let command = new Command("add", null, async (correlationId, args) => {
    let param1 = args.getAsFloat("param1");
    let param2 = args.getAsFloat("param2");
    let result = param1 + param2;
    return result;
result = await command.execute(
    "param1", 2,
    "param2", 2
console.log("2 + 2 = " + result);
// Console output: 2 + 2 = 4
