A common usecase in the application we’re developing is being able to reconstruct the state of an object (the AR) at a given point in time indicated by a specific marker event in the event stream. At first i thought that this is where the replay functionality comes into play, but replay has a number of side effects which make me think that it was not intended for this use case. Besides the doc state that replay should be considered as a maintenance operation.
This post here https://groups.google.com/d/msg/axonframework/ANlf0chAEYo/LmOdmd7ijCIJ indicates that an EventVisitor is probably what i should use, but it is not referenced in the documentation and i cannot find anything really useful here. From the axon sources itself i get the impression that it’s more a lower-level internal interface. Has anyone figured out how to actually use it, where to plug it etc ?
