Build Status codecov.io Issue Count

This is the official (and community-maintained) Java client library for InfluxDB (1.x), the open source time series database that is part of the TICK (Telegraf, InfluxDB, Chronograf, Kapacitor) stack.

Note: This library is for use with InfluxDB 1.x and 2.x compatibility API. For full supports of InfluxDB 2.x features, please use the influxdb-client-java client.

Adding the library to your project

The library artifact is published in Maven central, available at https://search.maven.org/artifact/org.influxdb/influxdb-java.

Release versions

Maven dependency:

<dependency>
  <groupId>org.influxdb</groupId>
  <artifactId>influxdb-java</artifactId>
  <version>${influxdbClient.version}</version>
</dependency>

Gradle dependency:

compile group: 'org.influxdb', name: 'influxdb-java', version: "${influxdbClientVersion}"

Features

Quick start

// Create an object to handle the communication with InfluxDB.
// (best practice tip: reuse the 'influxDB' instance when possible)
final String serverURL = "http://127.0.0.1:8086", username = "root", password = "root";
final InfluxDB influxDB = InfluxDBFactory.connect(serverURL, username, password);

// Create a database...
// https://docs.influxdata.com/influxdb/v1.7/query_language/database_management/
String databaseName = "NOAA_water_database";
influxDB.query(new Query("CREATE DATABASE " + databaseName));
influxDB.setDatabase(databaseName);

// ... and a retention policy, if necessary.
// https://docs.influxdata.com/influxdb/v1.7/query_language/database_management/
String retentionPolicyName = "one_day_only";
influxDB.query(new Query("CREATE RETENTION POLICY " + retentionPolicyName
        + " ON " + databaseName + " DURATION 1d REPLICATION 1 DEFAULT"));
influxDB.setRetentionPolicy(retentionPolicyName);

// Enable batch writes to get better performance.
influxDB.enableBatch(
    BatchOptions.DEFAULTS
      .threadFactory(runnable -> {
        Thread thread = new Thread(runnable);
        thread.setDaemon(true);
        return thread;
      })
);

// Close it if your application is terminating or you are not using it anymore.
Runtime.getRuntime().addShutdownHook(new Thread(influxDB::close));

// Write points to InfluxDB.
influxDB.write(Point.measurement("h2o_feet")
    .time(System.currentTimeMillis(), TimeUnit.MILLISECONDS)
    .tag("location", "santa_monica")
    .addField("level description", "below 3 feet")
    .addField("water_level", 2.064d)
    .build());

influxDB.write(Point.measurement("h2o_feet")
    .time(System.currentTimeMillis(), TimeUnit.MILLISECONDS)
    .tag("location", "coyote_creek")
    .addField("level description", "between 6 and 9 feet")
    .addField("water_level", 8.12d)
    .build());

// Wait a few seconds in order to let the InfluxDB client
// write your points asynchronously (note: you can adjust the
// internal time interval if you need via 'enableBatch' call).
Thread.sleep(5_000L);

// Query your data using InfluxQL.
// https://docs.influxdata.com/influxdb/v1.7/query_language/data_exploration/#the-basic-select-statement
QueryResult queryResult = influxDB.query(new Query("SELECT * FROM h2o_feet"));

System.out.println(queryResult);
// It will print something like:
// QueryResult [results=[Result [series=[Series [name=h2o_feet, tags=null,
//      columns=[time, level description, location, water_level],
//      values=[
//         [2020-03-22T20:50:12.929Z, below 3 feet, santa_monica, 2.064],
//         [2020-03-22T20:50:12.929Z, between 6 and 9 feet, coyote_creek, 8.12]
//      ]]], error=null]], error=null]

Build Requirements

  • Java 1.8+
  • Maven 3.5+
  • Docker (for Unit testing)

Then you can build influxdb-java with all tests with:

$> export INFLUXDB_IP=127.0.0.1

$> mvn clean install

There is a shell script running InfluxDB and Maven from inside a Docker container and you can execute it by running:

$> ./compile-and-test.sh
