Apache Dubbo-js

Dubbo-js, using Node.js to embrace the Dubbo ecosystem. See this Demo to find how intelligent this project is.


  • Various transport protocols (Hessian, JSON-RPC etc.) supports
  • Tracing (Runtime information, Call Stack)
  • Multiple registry centers (Zookeeper, Nacos, Redis) supports or connecting to services directly
  • Extensibility, inspired from Koa Middleware
  • Builtin reconnection strategy
  • Typescript type definitions
  • Tools to automatically translate Java interfaces to Typescript type definitions
  • Dubbox supports


Getting Started

yarn add dubbo2.js


Below code snippet shows how to work with the typescript type definitions which automatically translated from Java interfaces.

// ===================== service.ts ==================
// generated by interpret tools
import {BasicTypeProvider} from './providers/com/alibaba/dubbo/demo/BasicTypeProvider';
import {DemoProvider} from './providers/com/alibaba/dubbo/demo/DemoProvider';
import {ErrorProvider} from './providers/com/alibaba/dubbo/demo/ErrorProvider';

export default {

// =============== dubbo.ts ========================
import {Dubbo} from 'dubbo2.js';
import service from './service';

// create dubbo object
const dubbo = new Dubbo<typeof service>({
  application: {name: 'node-dubbo'},
  // zookeeper address
  register: 'localhost:2181',

// main method
(async () => {
  let {res, err} = await dubbo.service.DemoProvider.sayHello('node');
  // print {err: null, res:'hello node from dubbo service'}
  ({res, err} = await dubbo.service.DemoProvider.echo());
  // print {err: null, res: 'pang'}
  ({res, err} = await dubbo.service.DemoProvider.getUserInfo());
  // print {status: 'ok', info: { id: '1', name: 'test' }, err: null}

The automatically translated typescript type definitions are not necessary, below code snippet demonstrates how to use dubbo-js without them.

// create the service to be injected
import {Dubbo} from 'dubbo2.js';

const demoProvider = dubbo =>
    dubboInterface: '',
    version: '1.0.0',
    methods: {
      sayHello(name) {
        return [java.String(name)];

      echo() {},

      test() {},

      getUserInfo() {
        return [
          java.combine('', {
            id: 1,
            name: 'nodejs',
            email: '',

// integrate the service in demoProvider with dubbo object constructor
const service = {

const dubbo = new Dubbo<typeof service>({
  // ....other parameters

For contributors

If you'd like to contribute, it's a good start to follow below commands to get a locally runnable project.
