BitCask Java

This is an implementation (in progress) of Basho's bitcask; a local high-performance key/value store which is the preferred backend for Basho Riak.

I'm doing this in order to

  • Understand more of bitcask / riak
  • Provide tools to be able to read (write?) bitcask files without using Erlang, which could make people more comfortable with using the backend.

bitcask-java tries to e faithful to the original bitcask, so it should be interoperable and be able to run concurrently with the original.

At this stage, you can create/open a bitcask and get/put data to it. For sample usage see

Merging is not implemented yet.

You're welcome to help!
