= Spring Data R2DBC image:[link=][image:[Gitter]]

The primary goal of the[Spring Data] project is to make it easier to build Spring-powered applications that use data access technologies. Spring Data R2DBC offers the popular Repository abstraction based on[R2DBC].

R2DBC is the abbreviation for[Reactive Relational Database Connectivity], an incubator to integrate relational databases using a reactive driver.

== This is NOT an ORM

Spring Data R2DBC aims at being conceptually easy. In order to achieve this it does NOT offer caching, lazy loading, write behind or many other features of ORM frameworks. This makes Spring Data R2DBC a simple, limited, opinionated object mapper.

== Features

  • Spring configuration support using Java based
  • Annotation based mapping metadata.
  • Automatic implementation of Repository interfaces including support.
  • Support for Reactive Transactions
  • Schema and data initialization utilities.

== 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 ReactiveCrudRepository {

@Query("SELECT * FROM person WHERE lastname = :lastname") Flux findByLastname(String lastname);

@Query("SELECT * FROM person WHERE firstname LIKE :firstname") Flux 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("Mark"); person.setLastname("Paluch");;

Flux lastNameResults = repository.findByLastname("Paluch"); Flux firstNameResults = repository.findByFirstnameLike("M%");

} }

@Configuration @EnableR2dbcRepositories class ApplicationConfig extends AbstractR2dbcConfiguration {

@Bean public ConnectionFactory connectionFactory() { return ConnectionFactories.get("r2dbc:h2:mem:///test?options=DBCLOSEDELAY=-1;DBCLOSEON_EXIT=FALSE"); }


=== Maven configuration

Add the Maven dependency:

[source,xml] spring-data-r2dbc ${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.

== Getting Help

Having trouble with Spring Data? We’d love to help!

  • Check the[reference documentation], and[Javadocs].
  • 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[
  • Report bugs with Spring Data R2DBC at[].

== 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].

Also see link:CONTRIBUTING.adoc[CONTRIBUTING.adoc] if you wish to submit pull requests, and in particular please sign the[Contributor’s Agreement] before your first non-trivial change.

=== Building reference documentation

Building the documentation builds also the project without running tests.


$ ./mvnw clean install -Pdistribute
