Riak Java Client
The Riak Java Client enables communication with Riak, an open source, distributed database that focuses on high availability, horizontal scalability, and predictable latency. Both Riak and this code are maintained by Basho.
The latest version of the Java client supports both Riak KV 2.0+, and Riak TS 1.0+. Please see the Release Notes for more information on specific feature and version support.

- 2.0 Overview
This branch of the Riak Java Client is for the new v2.0 client, to be used with Riak 2.0.
riak-client-1.4.4 - For use with Riak 1.4.x
riak-client-1.1.4 - For use with < Riak 1.4.0
This client is published to Maven Central and can be included in your project by adding:
<dependencies> <dependency> <groupId>com.basho.riak</groupId> <artifactId>riak-client</artifactId> <version>2.0.7</version> </dependency> ... </dependencies>
All-in-one jar builds are available here for those that don't want to set up a maven project.
Also see the Javadoc site for more in-depth API docs.
Integration Tests Setup
We've included Basho's riak-client-tools as a git submodule to help with Riak test setup and teardown.
You can find these tools in the
To configure your single riak instance, you may use the riak-cluster-config script to setup the node with the appropriate bucket types.
You can use it by running
tools/devrel/riak-cluster-config $PATH_TO_RIAK_ADMIN $RIAK_HTTP_PORT false false with the appropriate paths and values filled in.
To configure a devrel for multiple node testing, please see the instructions located at basho/riak-client-tools on how to use the
Running Integration Tests
To run the Riak KV integration test suite, execute:
make RIAK_PORT=8087 integration-test
To run the Riak TimeSeries test suite, execute:
make RIAK_PORT=8087 integration-test-timeseries
When running tests directly from Maven, you may also turn feature sets on and off with system properties:
mvn -Pitest,default -Dcom.basho.riak.timeseries=true -Dcom.basho.riak.pbcport=$(RIAK_PORT) verify

To run the security-related integration tests, you will need to:
1) Setup the certs by running the buildbot makefile's
cd buildbot; make configure-security-certs; cd ../;
2) Copy the certs to your Riak's etc dir, and configure the riak.conf file to use them.
resources_dir=./src/test/resources riak_etc_dir=/fill/in/this/path/ # Shell cp $resources_dir/cacert.pem $riak_etc_dir cp $resources_dir/riak-test-cert.pem $riak_etc_dir cp $resources_dir/riakuser-client-cert.pem $riak_etc_dir # riak.conf file additions ssl.certfile = (riak_etc_dir)/cert.pem ssl.keyfile = (riak_etc_dir)/key.pem ssl.cacertfile = (riak_etc_dir)/cacert.pem
3) Enable Riak Security.
riak-admin security enable
4) Create a user "riakuser" with the password "riak_cert_user" and configure it with certificate as a source
riak-admin security add-user riakuser riak-admin security add-source riakuser 0.0.0.0/0 certificate
5) Create a user "riak_trust_user" with the password "riak_trust_user" and configure it with trust as a source.
riak-admin security add-user riak_trust_user password=riak_trust_user riak-admin security add-source riak_trust_user 0.0.0.0/0 trust
6) Create a user "riakpass" with the password "riak_passwd_user" and configure it with password as a source.
riak-admin security add-user riakpass password=Test1234 riak-admin security add-source riakpass 0.0.0.0/0 password

Version 2.0 of the Riak Java client is a completely new codebase. It relies on Netty4 in the core for handling network operations and all operations can be executed synchronously or asynchronously.
Getting started with the 2.0 client
The new client is designed to model a Riak cluster:
The easiest way to get started with the client is using one of the static methods provided to instantiate and start the client:
RiakClient client = RiakClient.newClient("192.168.1.1","192.168.1.2","192.168.1.3");
The RiakClient object is thread safe and may be shared across multiple threads.
For more complex configurations, you can instantiate a RiakCluster from the core packages and supply it to the RiakClient constructor.
RiakNode.Builder builder = new RiakNode.Builder(); builder.withMinConnections(10); builder.withMaxConnections(50); List<String> addresses = new LinkedList<String>(); addresses.add("192.168.1.1"); addresses.add("192.168.1.2"); addresses.add("192.168.1.3"); List<RiakNode> nodes = RiakNode.Builder.buildNodes(builder, addresses); RiakCluster cluster = new RiakCluster.Builder(nodes).build(); cluster.start(); RiakClient client = new RiakClient(cluster)
Once you have a client, commands from the com.basho.riak.client.api.commands.* packages are built then executed by the client.
Some basic examples of building and executing these commands is shown below.
Getting Data In
Namespace ns = new Namespace("default", "my_bucket"); Location location = new Location(ns, "my_key"); RiakObject riakObject = new RiakObject(); riakObject.setValue(BinaryValue.create("my_value")); StoreValue store = new StoreValue.Builder(riakObject) .withLocation(location) .withOption(Option.W, new Quorum(3)).build(); client.execute(store);
Getting Data Out
Namespace ns = new Namespace("default","my_bucket"); Location location = new Location(ns, "my_key"); FetchValue fv = new FetchValue.Builder(location).build(); FetchValue.Response response = client.execute(fv); RiakObject obj = response.getValue(RiakObject.class);
Using 2.0 Data Types
A bucket type must be created (in all local and remote clusters) before 2.0 data types can be used. In the example below, it is assumed that the type "my_map_type" has been created and associated to the "my_map_bucket" prior to this code executing.
Once a bucket has been associated with a type, all values stored in that bucket must belong to that data type.
Namespace ns = new Namespace("my_map_type", "my_map_bucket"); Location location = new Location(ns, "my_key"); RegisterUpdate ru1 = new RegisterUpdate(BinaryValue.create("map_value_1")); RegisterUpdate ru2 = new RegisterUpdate(BinaryValue.create("map_value_2")); MapUpdate mu = new MapUpdate(); mu.update("map_key_1", ru1); mu.update("map_key_2", ru2); UpdateMap update = new UpdateMap.Builder(location, mu).build(); client.execute(update);
