Spring Data JDBC Extensions for the Oracle database

The primary goal of the Spring Data project is to make it easier to build Spring-powered applications that use new data access technologies such as non-relational databases, map-reduce frameworks, and cloud based data services.

There are still many good uses for a relational database and this modules provides an improved programming model for working with legacy and advanced features of the Oracle database.


You can find out more details from the user documentation or by browsing the javadocs.


All you need to do to include the project in your project is shown on the project page


NOTE: Before you build the project you will need to download the necessary Oracle jars and import them into your local Maven repository. See spring-data-oracle/README.txt for more details on how to obtain and install these jars.

For building the project you should use Java SDK version 1.7.

Spring Data JDBC Extensions uses Gradle as its build system. To build the project run:

./gradlew build

from the project root folder. This will compile the sources, run the tests and create the artifacts.

To generate IDE-specific files, use

./gradlew eclipse


./gradlew idea

depending on your editor.
