Spring Data Examples

Build Status

This repository contains example projects for the different Spring Data modules to showcase the API and how to use the features provided by the modules.

We have separate folders for the samples of individual modules:

Spring Data for Apache Cassandra

  • example
    - Shows core Spring Data support for Apache Cassandra.
  • kotlin
    - Example for using Cassandra with Kotlin.
  • reactive
    - Example project to show reactive template and repository support.

Spring Data Elasticsearch

  • example
    - Example how to use basic text search, geo-spatial search and facets. It uses the High Level REST Client backing template and repository.
  • reactive
    - Example how to use reactive client, template and repository features.

Local Elasticsearch instance must be running to run the tests.

Spring Data for Apache Geode

  • events
    - In this example the test will make use of event handlers and async event queue to handle events.
  • expiration-eviction
    - In these examples the server is configured to delete entries after a certain idle period or after a Time-To-Live period (expiration0 or remove data from memory when certain thresholds are reached (eviction).
  • function-invocation
    - In this example the server will have 3 functions registered. The client will invoke each of the functions.
  • queries
    - In this example a client will query the data in various ways using OQl, continuous queries, and Apache Lucene indexes.
  • security
    - In this example the servers and clients are set up with security ( username/password) authentication using Geode Security and Apache Shiro.
  • storage
    - In this example the server is configured to store data off of hte JVM heap using the
    annotation and to compress region data using SnappyCompressor`.
  • transactions
    - In this example the client will perform operations within a transaction. First, it will do a successful transaction where entries are saved to the server, and then a failed transaction where all changes are reverted.
  • wan
    - In these example two servers are deployed. One server populates itself with data, and the other server gets populated with that data via WAN replication.

Spring Data JDBC

  • basic
    - Basic usage of Spring Data JDBC.
  • immutables
    - Showing Spring Data JDBC usage with Immutables

Spring Data JPA

  • eclipselink
    - Sample project to show how to use Spring Data JPA with Spring Boot and Eclipselink.
  • example
    - Probably the project you want to have a look at first. Contains a variety of sample packages, showcasing the different levels at which you can use Spring Data JPA. Have a look at the
    package for the most basic setup.
  • interceptors
    - Example of how to enrich the repositories with AOP.
  • jpa21
    - Shows support for JPA 2.1 specific features (stored procedures support).
  • multiple-datasources
    - Examples of how to use Spring Data JPA with multiple
  • query-by-example
    - Example project showing usage of Query by Example with Spring Data JPA.
  • security
    - Example of how to integrate Spring Data JPA Repositories with Spring Security.
  • showcase
    - Refactoring show case of how to improve a plain-JPA-based persistence layer by using Spring Data JPA (read: removing close to all of the implementation code). Follow the
    file for detailed instructions.
  • vavr
    - Shows the support of Vavr collection types as return types for query methods.

Spring Data LDAP

  • example
    - Sample for Spring Data repositories to access an LDAP store.

Spring Data MongoDB

  • aggregation
    - Example project to showcase the MongoDB aggregation framework support.
  • example
    - Example project for general repository functionality (including geo-spatial functionality), Querydsl integration and advanced topics.
  • fluent-api
    - Example project to show the new fluent API (
    -alternative) to interact with MongoDB.
  • geo-json
    - Example project showing usage of GeoJSON with MongoDB.

  • The example projects make use of the Lombok plugin. To get proper code navigation in your IDE, you must install it separately. Lombok is available in the IntelliJ plugins repository and as a download for Eclipse-based IDEs.
  • The code makes use of Java 16 language features therefore you need Java 16 or newer to run and compile the examples.
  • Most store modules examples start their database via Testcontainers or as embedded/in-memory server unless stated otherwise.
