This repository has been deprecated, it has moved to the Neo4j organization. Neo4j Github Repositories

The Java binding for the Neo4j Server REST API wraps the REST calls behind the well known GraphDatabaseService API.

Currently supports:

  • all the node and relationship operations
  • the new Index API
  • Basic Http Auth (Digest)
  • preliminary traversal support

Open issues:

  • full traversal support
  • support for exposing server extensions - via an interface based proxy


Build it locally. Then use the maven / ivy dependency or copy the jar into your app.

GraphDatabaseService gds = new RestGraphDatabase(new URI("http://localhost:7474/db/data"),username,password);

Please note: Transactions are not supported over this API.
