Abstract service that receives commands via the GRPC protocol.

Extends: GrpcService

See also CommandableGrpcClient, GrpcService


Abstract service that receives commands via GRPC protocol to operations automatically generated for commands defined in ICommandable.

Important points

  • Each command is exposed as an Invoke method that receives a command name and parameters.
  • Commandable services require only 3 lines of code to implement a robust external GRPC-based remote interface.

Configuration parameters

  • dependencies:
    • endpoint: override for HTTP Endpoint dependency
    • controller: override for Controller dependency
  • connection(s):
    • discovery_key: (optional) key to retrieve the connection from IDiscovery
    • protocol: connection protocol: http or https
    • host: host name or IP address
    • port: port number
    • uri: resource URI or connection string with all parameters in it


  • *:discovery:*:*:1.0 - (optional) IDiscovery services
  • *:logger:*:*:1.0 - (optional) ILogger components to pass log messages
  • *:counters:*:*:1.0 - (optional) ICounters components to pass collected measurements as specified by the counter’s source.
  • *:endpoint:grpc:*:1.0 - (optional) GrpcEndpoint reference


Creates a new instance of the service.

public constructor(name: string)

  • name: string - service name.

Instance methods


Registers all service routes in a gRPC endpoint.

public register()


Registers a commandable method in this objects GRPC server (service) by the given name.,

protected registerCommandableMethod(method: string, schema: Schema, action: (correlationId: string, data: any) => Promise<any>): void

  • method: string - the GRPC method name.
  • schema: Schema - the schema to use for parameter validation.
  • action: (correlationId: string, data: any) => Promise<any> - the action to perform at the given route.


class MyCommandableGrpcService extends CommandableGrpcService {
   public constructor() {
          new Descriptor("mygroup","controller","*","*","1.0")

let service = new MyCommandableGrpcService();
    "connection.protocol", "http",
    "", "localhost",
    "connection.port", 8080

   new Descriptor("mygroup","controller","default","default","1.0"), controller

console.log("The GRPC service is running on port 8080");
