= Spring Data for Apache Cassandra image:[link=][image:[Gitter]]

The primary goal of the[Spring Data] project is to make it easier to build Spring-powered applications that use new data access technologies such as non-relational databases, map-reduce frameworks, and cloud based data services.

The Apache Cassandra NoSQL Database offers many new capabilities for teams seeking a solution to handle high velocity, high volume and variable data flows. This new way of thinking introduces new concepts and a learning curve that can be intimidating to team members and team managers. Spring Data for Apache Cassandra offers a familiar interface to those who have used other Spring Data modules in the past.

The learning curve for developing applications with Apache Cassandra is significantly reduced when using Spring Data for Apache Cassandra. With the power to stay at a high level with annotated POJOs, or at a low level with high performance data ingestion capabilities, the Spring Data for Apache Cassandra templates are sure to meet every application need.

== Features

  • Build repositories based on common Spring Data interfaces
  • Support for synchronous, reactive, and asynchronous data operations
  • Support for XML based Keyspace creation and CQL Table creation
  • JavaConfig and XML Support for all Cluster and Session Capabilities
  • Exception Translation to the familiar Spring DataAccessException hierarchy
  • Convenient QueryBuilders to eliminate the need to learn CQL
  • Automatic implementation of Repository interfaces including support for custom query methods
  • Based on the 4.x DataStax CQL Java Driver

== Code of Conduct

This project is governed by the[Spring Code of Conduct]. By participating, you are expected to uphold this code of conduct. Please report unacceptable behavior to [email protected]

== Getting Started

Here is a quick teaser of an application using Spring Data Repositories in Java:


public interface PersonRepository extends CrudRepository {

List findByLastname(String lastname);

List findByFirstnameLike(String firstname); }

@Service public class MyService {

private final PersonRepository repository;

public MyService(PersonRepository repository) { this.repository = repository; }

public void doWork() {


Person person = new Person(); person.setFirstname("Matthew"); person.setLastname("Adams");;

List lastNameResults = repository.findByLastname("Adams"); List firstNameResults = repository.findByFirstnameLike("M*");

} }

@Configuration @EnableCassandraRepositories class ApplicationConfig extends AbstractCassandraConfiguration {

@Override public String getContactPoints() { return "localhost"; }

@Override protected String getKeyspaceName() { return "springdata"; }


=== Maven configuration

Add the Maven dependency:

[source,xml] spring-data-cassandra ${version}

If you'd rather like the latest snapshots of the upcoming major version, use our Maven snapshot repository and declare the appropriate dependency version.

  • Learn the Spring basics – Spring Data builds on Spring Framework, check the[] web-site for a wealth of reference documentation. If you are just starting out with Spring, try one of the[guides].
  • If you are upgrading, check out the[changelog] for "
    new and noteworthy
    " features.
  • Ask a question - we monitor[] for questions tagged with[
    ]. You can also chat with the community on[Gitter].

== Reporting Issues

Spring Data uses GitHub as issue tracking system to record bugs and feature requests. If you want to raise an issue, please follow the recommendations below:

  • Before you log a bug, please search the[issue tracker] to see if someone has already reported the problem.
  • If the issue does not already exist,[create a new issue].
  • Please provide as much information as possible with the issue report, we like to know the version of Spring Data that you are using and JVM version.
  • If you need to paste code, or include a stack trace use Markdown +++```+++ escapes before and after your text.
  • If possible try to create a test-case or project that replicates the issue. Attach a link to your code or a compressed file containing your code.

== Building from Source

You don’t need to build from source to use Spring Data (binaries in[]), but if you want to try out the latest and greatest, Spring Data can be easily built with the[maven wrapper]. You also need JDK 1.8.


$ ./mvnw clean install

If you want to build with the regular

command, you will need[Maven v3.5.0 or above].
