Spring Data Redis

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. This modules provides integration with the Redis store.


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


For examples on using the Spring Data Key Value, see the dedicated project, also available on GitHub


Maven configuration

Add the Maven dependency:


If you'd rather like the latest snapshots of the upcoming major version, use our Maven snapshot repository and declare the appropriate dependency version.


  <name>Spring Snapshot Repository</name>


repositories {
   maven { url "" }
   maven { url "" }

// used for nightly builds
dependencies {
   compile "${version}"

Usage (for the impatient)

  • Configure the Redis connector to use (here jedis):
<beans xmlns=""
  <bean id="jedisFactory" class=""/>
  <bean id="redisTemplate" class=""
  • Use RedisTemplate to interact with the Redis store:
String random = template.randomKey();
template.set(random, new Person("John", "Smith"));
  • Use Redis 'views' to execute specific operations based on the underlying Redis type:
ListOperations<String, Person> listOps = template.listOps();
listOps.rightPush(random, new Person("Jane", "Smith"));
List<Person> peopleOnSecondFloor = listOps.range("users:floor:2", 0, -1);


Spring Data Redis uses Maven as its build system. Running the tests requires you to have a RedisServer running at its default port. Using the -D runLongTests=true option executes additional Pub/Sub test.

    mvn clean install

You can alternatively use the provided Makefile which runs the build plus downloads and spins up the following environment:

  • 1 Single Node
  • HA Redis (1 Master, 2 Slaves, 3 Sentinels).
  • Redis Cluster (3 Masters, 1 Slave)
    make test
