MusicBrainz Java data bindings using Hibernate

README.md

musicbrainz-data

Java data bindings for the MusicBrainz Database using Hibernate.

Things to know

  • As of now, musicbrainz-data is meant for read-only access to the MusicBrainz Database. Nothing, however, prevents a user from changing entites; any change might be written to the database and might leave it in an inconsistent state afterwards.
  • Only a subset of the database schema is implemented. Access is provided to artists, releases, tracks and recordings (and related tables).

Configuration

Set some properties for your context

    db.musicbrainz.driver.class=org.postgresql.Driver
    db.musicbrainz.url=jdbc:postgresql://localhost:5432/musicbrainz_db
    db.musicbrainz.user=musicbrainz
    db.musicbrainz.password=musicbrainz

(see src/main/config/musicbrainz-data.properties.example for all available options)

Import the musicbrainz-data Spring context:

    <import resource="spring/musicbrainz-data.xml" />

Add the musicbrainz-data dependency:

    <dependency>
      <groupId>fm.last</groupId>
      <artifactId>musicbrainz-data</artifactId>
      <version>3.0.0</version>
    </dependency>

Usage examples

See the included tests for more examples. The Javadoc can be generated by running mvn javadoc:javadoc.

General pattern

    @Component
    public class ArtistHandler {

      private final ArtistDao artistDao;

      @Autowired
      public ArtistHandler(ArtistDao artistDao) {
        this.artistDao = artistDao;
      }

      @Transactional
      public void process(int id) {
        Artist artist = artistDao.getById(id);
        // ...
      }
    }

Query for all artists named 'MONO' (casing will be ignored)

    List<Artist> artists = artistDao.getByName("mono");

Get release with GID 'c69b70bc-049e-3e3f-a5e4-5a1b4d62105f'

    UUID musicBrainzId = UUID.fromString("c69b70bc-049e-3e3f-a5e4-5a1b4d62105f");
    Release release = releaseDao.getByGid(musicBrainzId);

Running the tests

  • Create an empty database musicbrainz_musicbrainzdata_unittest (as described in the MusicBrainz documentation).
  • Run mvn clean verify
