Repositories are essential components in Axon Framework. However, they mostly remain behind the scenes, and developers don't need to interact with them directly. Usually, the framework can configure, instantiate and use the correct repository based on how the developer has constructed the domain components.

When using AxonFramework together with PostgreSQL, you will find out that PostgreSQL uses something that is called TOAST (The Oversized Attribute Storage Technique).

It means that PostgreSQL uses a fixed page size of 8 KB and does not allow for tuples to use multiple pages; Postgres will compress the data. You can find more info about TOAST in the PostgreSQL wiki.
