dropwizard-cassandra

Build Quality Gate Status Maven Central

Provides easy integration for Dropwizard applications with the Datastax Cassandra java driver..

This bundle comes with out-of-the-box support for:

  • YAML-based configuration and built-in strongly typed configuration validation
  • Cluster connection lifecycle management
  • Cluster health checks
  • Metrics integration for Cassandra driver stats using your applications MetricRegistry

Future improvements

  • Schema migrations functionality, similar to what flyway and liquibase offer for SQL databases.

Note on Multi-Environment Configuration

If you have different contact points per deployment environment your application runs in, it may be easier to avoid having to define multiple YAML files per environment by inserting a placeholder in your YAML file that you then override in each environment (via whatever means you normally override config values, whether that's properties, environment variables, or whatever else), and then override that placeholder with a single entry JSON string defining all contact points, to avoid having to deal with YAML lists.

contactPoints: [${commaSeparatedContactPoints}]

commaSeparatedContactPoints = {"host": "host1", "port": "9142"}, {"host": "host2", "port": "9142"}

Acknowledgements

This library was originally built to extend https://github.com/composable-systems/dropwizard-cassandra, but was forked due to some needs that were unmet (for instance, being able to define different CassandraFactory implementations, if a modified client is used), and due to lack of maintenance. Big thanks to @stuartgunter for his module, which inspired this one heavily, and for which this module borrows a lot of ideas and code.
