Getting Binaries

Binaries and dependency information for Maven, Ivy, Gradle and others can be found at http://search.maven.org.

Example for Maven:

<dependency>
    <groupId>com.netflix.hystrix</groupId>
    <artifactId>hystrix-core</artifactId>
    <version>x.y.z</version>
</dependency>

and for Ivy:

<dependency org="com.netflix.hystrix" name="hystrix-core" rev="x.y.z" />

If you need to download the jars instead of using a build system, create a Maven pom file like this with the desired version:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/xsd/maven-4.0.0.xsd">
    <modelVersion>4.0.0</modelVersion>
    <groupId>com.netflix.hystrix.download</groupId>
    <artifactId>hystrix-download</artifactId>
    <version>1.0-SNAPSHOT</version>
    <name>Simple POM to download hystrix-core and dependencies</name>
    <url>http://github.com/Netflix/Hystrix</url>
    <dependencies>
        <dependency>
            <groupId>com.netflix.hystrix</groupId>
            <artifactId>hystrix-core</artifactId>
            <version>x.y.z</version>
            <scope/>
        </dependency>
    </dependencies>
</project>

Then execute:

mvn -f download-hystrix-pom.xml dependency:copy-dependencies

It will download hystrix-core-*.jar and its dependencies into ./target/dependency/.

You need Java 6 or later.

Hello World!

The simplest use of Hystrix is as follows:

public class CommandHelloWorld extends HystrixCommand<String> {

    private final String name;

    public CommandHelloWorld(String name) {
        super(HystrixCommandGroupKey.Factory.asKey("ExampleGroup"));
        this.name = name;
    }

    @Override
    protected String run() {
        // a real example would do work like a network call here
        return "Hello " + name + "!";
    }
}

View Source

This command could be used like this:

String s = new CommandHelloWorld("Bob").execute();
Future<String> s = new CommandHelloWorld("Bob").queue();
Observable<String> s = new CommandHelloWorld("Bob").observe();

More examples and information can be found in the How To Use section.

Example source code can be found in the hystrix-examples module.

Building

To checkout the source and build:

$ git clone git@github.com:Netflix/Hystrix.git
$ cd Hystrix/
$ ./gradlew build

To do a clean build:

$ ./gradlew clean build

A build should look like this:

$ ./gradlew build
:hystrix-core:compileJava
:hystrix-core:processResources UP-TO-DATE
:hystrix-core:classes
:hystrix-core:jar
:hystrix-core:sourcesJar
:hystrix-core:signArchives SKIPPED
:hystrix-core:assemble
:hystrix-core:licenseMain UP-TO-DATE
:hystrix-core:licenseTest UP-TO-DATE
:hystrix-core:compileTestJava
:hystrix-core:processTestResources UP-TO-DATE
:hystrix-core:testClasses
:hystrix-core:test
:hystrix-core:check
:hystrix-core:build
:hystrix-examples:compileJava
:hystrix-examples:processResources UP-TO-DATE
:hystrix-examples:classes
:hystrix-examples:jar
:hystrix-examples:sourcesJar
:hystrix-examples:signArchives SKIPPED
:hystrix-examples:assemble
:hystrix-examples:licenseMain UP-TO-DATE
:hystrix-examples:licenseTest UP-TO-DATE
:hystrix-examples:compileTestJava
:hystrix-examples:processTestResources UP-TO-DATE
:hystrix-examples:testClasses
:hystrix-examples:test
:hystrix-examples:check
:hystrix-examples:build

BUILD SUCCESSFUL

Total time: 30.758 secs

On a clean build you will see the unit tests be run and look something like this:

> Building > :hystrix-core:test > 147 tests completed
