  • High extensibility
  • Runtime traffic routing
  • Visualized service governance

Getting started

The following code snippet comes from Dubbo Samples. You may clone the sample project and step into


sub directory before read on.

# git clone # cd dubbo-samples/java/dubbo-samples-api

There's a README file under


directory. Read it and try this sample out by following the instructions.

Maven dependency


Define service interfaces

package org.apache.dubbo.samples.api; public interface GreetingsService { String sayHi(String name); }

See api/ on GitHub.

Implement service interface for the provider

package org.apache.dubbo.samples.provider; import org.apache.dubbo.samples.api.GreetingsService; public class GreetingsServiceImpl implements GreetingsService { @Override public String sayHi(String name) { return "hi, " + name; } }

See provider/ on GitHub.

Start service provider

package org.apache.dubbo.samples.provider; import org.apache.dubbo.config.ApplicationConfig; import org.apache.dubbo.config.RegistryConfig; import org.apache.dubbo.config.ServiceConfig; import org.apache.dubbo.samples.api.GreetingsService; import java.util.concurrent.CountDownLatch; public class Application { private static String zookeeperHost = System.getProperty("zookeeper.address", ""); public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception { ServiceConfig<greetingsservice> service = new ServiceConfig&lt;&gt;();
        service.setApplication(new ApplicationConfig("first-dubbo-provider"));
        service.setRegistry(new RegistryConfig("zookeeper://" + zookeeperHost + ":2181"));
        service.setRef(new GreetingsServiceImpl());

        System.out.println("dubbo service started");
        new CountDownLatch(1).await();

See provider/ on GitHub.

Build and run the provider

# mvn clean package # mvn -Dexec.mainClass=org.apache.dubbo.samples.provider.Application exec:java

Call remote service in consumer

package org.apache.dubbo.samples.client; import org.apache.dubbo.config.ApplicationConfig; import org.apache.dubbo.config.ReferenceConfig; import org.apache.dubbo.config.RegistryConfig; import org.apache.dubbo.samples.api.GreetingsService; public class Application { private static String zookeeperHost = System.getProperty("zookeeper.address", ""); public static void main(String[] args) { ReferenceConfig<greetingsservice> reference = new ReferenceConfig&lt;&gt;();
        reference.setApplication(new ApplicationConfig("first-dubbo-consumer"));
        reference.setRegistry(new RegistryConfig("zookeeper://" + zookeeperHost + ":2181"));
        GreetingsService service = reference.get();
        String message = service.sayHi("dubbo");

See consumer/ on GitHub.

Build and run the consumer

# mvn clean package # mvn -Dexec.mainClass=org.apache.dubbo.samples.client.Application exec:java

The consumer will print out

hi, dubbo

on the screen.

Next steps


If you want to try out the cutting-edge features, you can build with the following commands. (Java 1.8 is required to build the master branch)

mvn clean install
