Components patterns for Pip.Services in Dart. This framework is part of the [Pip.Services](https://github.com/pip-services/pip-services) project.

Pip.Services Logo
Component definitions for Dart #

This module is a part of the Pip.Services polyglot microservices toolkit.

The Components module contains standard component definitions that can be used to build applications and services.

The module contains the following packages:

  • Auth - authentication credential stores
  • Build - basic factories for constructing objects
  • Cache - distributed cache
  • Config - configuration readers and managers, whose main task is to deliver configuration parameters to the application from wherever they are being stored
  • Connect - connection discovery and configuration services
  • Count - performance counters
  • Info - context info implementations that manage the saving of process information and sending additional parameter sets
  • Lock - distributed lock components
  • Log - basic logging components that provide console and composite logging, as well as an interface for developing custom loggers
  • Test - minimal set of test components to make testing easier
  • Component - the root package

Quick links:

Use #

Add this to your package's pubspec.yaml file:

  pip_services3_components: version

Now you can install package from the command line:

pub get

Example how to use Logging and Performance counters. Here we are going to use CompositeLogger and CompositeCounters components. They will pass through calls to loggers and counters that are set in references.

import 'package:pip_services3_commons/src/config/ConfigParams.dart';
import 'package:pip_services3_commons/src/config/IConfigurable.dart';
import 'package:pip_services3_commons/src/refer/IReferences.dart';
import 'package:pip_services3_commons/src/refer/IReferenceable.dart';
import 'package:pip_services3_components/src/log/CompositeLogger.dart';
import 'package:pip_services3_components/src/count/CompositeCounters.dart';
import 'package:pip_services3_components/src/count/Timing.dart';

class MyComponent implements IConfigurable, IReferenceable {
  CompositeLogger _logger = CompositeLogger();
  CompositeCounters _counters = CompositeCounters();
  configure(ConfigParams config) {
  setReferences(IReferences refs) {
  myMethod(String correlationId, dynamic param1) {
      this._logger.trace(correlationId, "Executed method mycomponent.mymethod");
      this._counters.increment("mycomponent.mymethod.exec_count", 1);
      Timing timing = this._counters.beginTiming("mycomponent.mymethod.exec_time");
    } catch(e) {
      this._logger.error(correlationId, e, "Failed to execute mycomponent.mymethod");
      this._counters.increment("mycomponent.mymethod.error_count", 1);

Example how to get connection parameters and credentials using resolvers. The resolvers support "discovery_key" and "store_key" configuration parameters to retrieve configuration from discovery services and credential stores respectively.

import 'package:pip_services3_commons/src/config/ConfigParams.dart';
import 'package:pip_services3_commons/src/config/IConfigurable.dart';
import 'package:pip_services3_commons/src/refer/IReferences.dart';
import 'package:pip_services3_commons/src/refer/IReferenceable.dart';
import 'package:pip_services3_commons/src/run/IOpenable.dart';
import 'package:pip_services3_components/src/connect/ConnectionParams.dart';
import 'package:pip_services3_components/src/connect/ConnectionResolver.dart';
import 'package:pip_services3_components/src/auth/CredentialParams.dart';
import 'package:pip_services3_components/src/auth/CredentialResolver.dart';

class MyComponent implements IConfigurable, IReferenceable, IOpenable {
  final _connectionResolver = ConnectionResolver();
  final _credentialResolver = CredentialResolver();
  bool _opened = false;

  void configure(ConfigParams config) {

  void setReferences(IReferences refs) {

  // ...
  Future open(String? correlationId) async {
    ConnectionParams? connection =
        await _connectionResolver.resolve(correlationId);

    CredentialParams? credential =
        await _credentialResolver.lookup(correlationId);

    if (connection != null && credential != null) {
      String? host = connection.getHost();
      int? port = connection.getPort();
      String? user = credential.getUsername();
      String? pass = credential.getPassword();
      // ...
      _opened = true;

  Future close(String? correlationId) {
    // do closing
    return Future.value();

  bool isOpen() {
    return _opened;

Example how to use caching and locking. Here we assume that references are passed externally.

import 'package:pip_services3_commons/src/refer/Descriptor.dart';
import 'package:pip_services3_commons/src/refer/References.dart';
import 'package:pip_services3_commons/src/refer/IReferences.dart';
import 'package:pip_services3_commons/src/refer/IReferenceable.dart';
import 'package:pip_services3_components/src/lock/ILock.dart';
import 'package:pip_services3_components/src/lock/MemoryLock.dart';
import 'package:pip_services3_components/src/cache/ICache.dart';
import 'package:pip_services3_components/src/cache/MemoryCache.dart';

class MyComponent implements IReferenceable {
  ICache? _cache;
  ILock? _lock;

  void setReferences(IReferences refs) {
    _cache =
        refs.getOneRequired<ICache>(Descriptor('*', 'cache', '*', '*', '1.0'));
    _lock =
        refs.getOneRequired<ILock>(Descriptor('*', 'lock', '*', '*', '1.0'));

  Future myMethod(String? correlationId, dynamic param1) async {
    // First check cache for result
    dynamic result = await _cache!.retrieve(correlationId, 'mykey');

    // Lock..
    await _lock!.acquireLock(correlationId, 'mykey', 1000, 1000);

    // Do processing
    // ...

    // Store result to cache async
    await _cache!.store(correlationId, 'mykey', result, 3600000);

    // Release lock async
    await _lock!.releaseLock(correlationId, 'mykey');

void main() async {
// Use the component
  MyComponent myComponent = MyComponent();

    Descriptor('pip-services', 'cache', 'memory', 'default', '1.0'),
    Descriptor('pip-services', 'lock', 'memory', 'default', '1.0'),

  await myComponent.myMethod(null, 'param1');

If you need to create components using their locators (descriptors) implement component factories similar to the example below.

import 'package:pip_services3_components/src/build/Factory.dart';
import 'package:pip_services3_commons/src/refer/Descriptor.dart';

class MyFactory extends Factory {
  static Descriptor myComponentDescriptor =
      Descriptor('myservice', 'mycomponent', 'default', '*', '1.0');

  MyFactory() : super() {
    registerAsType(MyFactory.myComponentDescriptor, MyComponent);

// Using the factory

MyFactory myFactory = MyFactory();

MyComponent1 myComponent1 = myFactory.create(
    Descriptor('myservice', 'mycomponent', 'default', 'myComponent1', '1.0'));
MyComponent2 myComponent2 = myFactory.create(
    Descriptor('myservice', 'mycomponent', 'default', 'myComponent2', '1.0'));
