Apache H2 Database Go Driver

This driver is VERY experimental state

NOT use for production yet

Introduction

Apache H2 Database is a very-low footprint database with in-memory capabilities.

It's written in Java and it's fully ACID compliant.

You can use H2 as embedded database or via TCP/IP.

It has interfaces for Postgres protocol and native TCP server.

Motivation

Until now, using H2 in your Go projects could only be done through the Postgres driver.

This approach has several cons. The poor error messagens or not being able to use native data types are some of them.

This pure Go driver uses the native TCP interface.

Pre-requesites

In "contrib" folder you can find the scripts to download and launch the H2 database server. You need to have any Java Runtime installed.

cd contrib
./downloadH2.sh
./runStandalone.sh

Usage

First make sure the H2 server is running in TCP server mode. You can launch using the runStandalone.sh or with a command similar to the following:

java -classpath h2.jar org.h2.tools.Server -tcp -tcpAllowOthers -ifNotExists

This starts the server at the defaulr port (9092)

The following example connect to H2 and creates an in-memory database.

package main

import (
	"database/sql"
	"log"
	_ "github.com/jmrobles/h2go"
)

func main() {
	conn, err := sql.Open("h2", "h2://sa@localhost/testdb?mem=true")
	if err != nil {
		log.Fatalf("Can't connet to H2 Database: %s", err)
	}
    err = conn.Ping()
    if err != nil {
        log.Fatalf("Can't ping to H2 Database: %s", err)
    }
    log.Printf("H2 Database connected")
    conn.Close()
}

In the folder examples you can find more examples.

Connection string

In the connection string you must specify:

  • Database driver: h2 literal
  • Username (optional)
  • Password (optinal)
  • Host: format (:)?
  • Database name
  • Other connection options

Options

You can use the following options:

  • mem=(true|false): to use in-memory or in-disk database
  • logging=(none|info|debug|error|warn|panic|trace): the common logging level

Parameters

For the use of parameters in SQL statement you need to use the ? placeholder symbol.

For example:

    conn.Exec("INSERT INTO employees VALUES (?,?,?)", name, age, salary)

Data types

The following H2 datatypes are implemented:

H2 Data type Go mapping
String string
StringIgnoreCase string
StringFixed string
Bool bool
Short int16
Int int32
Long int64
Float float32
Double float64
Byte byte
Bytes []byte
Time time.Time
Time with timezone time.Time
Date time.Time
Timestamp time.Time
Timestamp with timezone time.Time

H2 Supported version

This driver supports H2 database version 1.4.200 or above.

ToDo

  • Rest of native data types (UUID, JSON, Decimal, ...)
  • NamedValue interface
  • Multiple result sets
  • Improve context usage (timeouts, ...)
  • Submit your issue
