Spring Statemachine

badge (GitHub default)

The Spring Statemachine project aims to provide a common infrastructure to work with state machine concepts in Spring applications.

Downloading Artifacts

See downloading Spring artifacts for Maven repository information.


The Spring Statemachine Project Page contains links to currently available JavaDoc and Reference Documentation for particular releases and versions.


Samples can be found under spring-statemachine-samples. Check the reference documentation more about what those do.

Building from Source

Spring Statemachine uses a Gradle-based build system. In the instructions below, ./gradlew is invoked from the root of the source tree and serves as a cross-platform, self-contained bootstrap mechanism for the build.


Git and the JDK8 build.

Be sure that your JAVA_HOME environment variable points to the jdk folder extracted from the JDK download. While build requires JDK8, created artifacts are JDK7 compatible.
