Polly

NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
This blip is not on the current edition of the radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the radarUnderstand more

Several of our teams working on .NET projects have recommended Polly as being useful in building microservice-based systems. It encourages the fluent expression of transient exception-handling policies and the Circuit Breaker pattern, including policies such as Retry, Retry Forever and Wait and Retry. Similar libraries already exist in other languages (Hystrix for Java for example), and Polly is a welcome addition from the .NET community. Integrating well with Polly is Brighter. Brighter is another small open source .Net library that provides scaffolding to implement command invocation. Combining the two libraries provides useful circuit-breaking functionality especially in the context of the Ports and Adapters pattern and CQRS. Although they can be used separately, in the wild our teams find they work well together.
