AxonIQ Initializr

The AxonIQ Initializr is a web application that creates an Axon project structure for you. It doesn’t generate any application code, but it will give you a solid project structure, offering either a Maven or a Gradle build specification to suit your needs. Once you’ve downloaded your generated project, all that remains is to unzip, open, and begin work on your Axon code. 

Axon Server on Docker Hub

Run the following command to start Axon Server in a Docker container:

docker run -d --name axonserver -p 8024:8024 -p 8124:8124 axoniq/axonserver

Alternatively, visit Docker Hub using the link below to find information on running and configuring Axon Server in a Docker container.
