Redis Plugin

This plugin provides support for Redis using the best Java driver Jedis and the corresponding Scala wrapper Sedis. Also implements play's internal [Caching] (https://github.com/playframework/Play20/blob/master/framework/src/play/src/main/scala/play/api/cache/Cache.scala#L9) interface

Features

Provides a Redis-based Cache API (supported types: String, Int, Long, Boolean and Serializable) ie.

//java
String f = (String) play.cache.Cache.get("mykey");

and

//scala
val o = play.api.cache.Cache.getAs[String]("mykey")

Configurable

  • Point to your Redis server using configuration settings redis.host, redis.port, redis.password and redis.database (defaults: localhost, 6379, null and 0)
  • Alternatively, specify a URI-based configuration using redis.uri (for example: redis.uri="redis://user:password@localhost:6379").
  • Set the timeout in milliseconds using redis.timeout (default is 2000).
  • Configure any aspect of the connection pool. See the documentation for commons-pool2 GenericObjectPoolConfig, the underlying pool implementation, for more information on each setting.
    • redis.pool.maxIdle
    • redis.pool.minIdle
    • redis.pool.maxTotal
    • redis.pool.maxWaitMillis
    • redis.pool.testOnBorrow
    • redis.pool.testOnReturn
    • redis.pool.testWhileIdle
    • redis.pool.timeBetweenEvictionRunsMillis
    • redis.pool.numTestsPerEvictionRun
    • redis.pool.minEvictableIdleTimeMillis
    • redis.pool.softMinEvictableIdleTimeMillis
    • redis.pool.lifo
    • redis.pool.blockWhenExhausted

Allows direct access to Jedis and Sedis:

play = 2.3.x:

//java
import com.typesafe.plugin.RedisPlugin;
import redis.clients.jedis.*;

Jedis j = play.Play.application().plugin(RedisPlugin.class).jedisPool().getResource();

try {
  /// ... do stuff here 
  j.set("foo", "bar");
} finally {
  play.Play.application().plugin(RedisPlugin.class).jedisPool().returnResource(j);
}  
//scala
import play.api.Play.current
import com.typesafe.plugin.use
import com.typesafe.plugin.RedisPlugin

val pool = use[RedisPlugin].sedisPool
pool.withJedisClient { client =>
  Option[String] single = Dress.up(client).get("single")
}

play = 2.4.x and 2.5.x: Because the underlying Sedis Pool was injected for the cache module to use, you can just inject the sedis Pool yourself, something like this:

//scala
import javax.inject.Inject
import org.sedis.Pool

class TryIt @Inject()(sedisPool: Pool) extends Controller {
   val directValue: String = sedisPool.withJedisClient(client => client.get("someKey"))
}
//java
import javax.inject.Inject
import redis.clients.jedis.JedisPool

class TryIt extends Controller {
   
   //The JedisPool will be injected for you from the module
   @Inject JedisPool jedisPool;

   ...
}

The Play 2.4.x and 2.5.x module also supports compile time DI via RedisCacheComponents. Mix this in with your custom application loader just like you would if you were using EhCacheComponents from the reference cache module.

How to install

  • add

play < 2.3.x: "com.typesafe" %% "play-plugins-redis" % "2.0.4" to your dependencies

play = 2.3.x: "com.typesafe.play.plugins" %% "play-plugins-redis" % "2.3.1" to your dependencies

  • create a file called play.plugins in your conf directory

  • add 550:com.typesafe.plugin.RedisPlugin

  • while this plugin is going to be loaded before the default cache implementation, it's a good practice to disable the overwritten plugin:

#conf/application.conf
ehcacheplugin=disabled

play = 2.4.x: "com.typesafe.play.modules" %% "play-modules-redis" % "2.4.1" to your dependencies and you'll probably need to add this resolver too to resolve Sedis (see issue): resolvers += "google-sedis-fix" at "http://pk11-scratch.googlecode.com/svn/trunk"

  • The default cache module (EhCache) will be used for all non-named cache UNLESS this module (RedisModule) is the only cache module that was loaded. If this module is the only cache module being loaded, it will work as expected on named and non-named cache. To disable the default cache module so that this Redis Module can be the default cache you must put this in your configuration:
play.modules.disabled = ["play.api.cache.EhCacheModule"]
  • This module supports play 2.4 NamedCaches through key namespacing on a single Sedis pool. To add additional namepsaces besides the default (play), the configuration would look like such:
play.cache.redis.bindCaches = ["db-cache", "user-cache", "session-cache"]

play = 2.5.x: "com.typesafe.play.modules" %% "play-modules-redis" % "2.5.0" to your dependencies and you'll probably need to add this resolver too to resolve Sedis (see issue): resolvers += "google-sedis-fix" at "http://pk11-scratch.googlecode.com/svn/trunk"
