Xpring4j is the Java client-side library of Xpring SDK.


Xpring4j provides the following features:

  • Wallet generation and derivation (Seed-based or HD Wallet-based)
  • Address validation
  • Account balance retrieval
  • Sending XRP payments


Xpring4j utilizes two components to access Xpring:

  1. The Xpring4j client-side library (This library)
  2. A server-side component that handles requests from this library and proxies them to an XRP node

Client-Side Library

Xpring4j is available as a Java library from Maven Central. Simply add the following to your pom.xml:


Server-Side Component

The server-side component sends client-side requests to an XRP Node.

To get developers started right away, Xpring provides the server-side component as a hosted service, which proxies requests from client-side libraries to a hosted XRP Node. Developers can reach the endpoint at:

Xpring is working on building a zero-config way for XRP node users to deploy and use the adapter as an open-source component of rippled. Watch this space!


Note: Xpring SDK only works with the X-Address format. For more information about this format, see the Utilities section and


A wallet is a fundamental model object in Xpring4j. A wallet provides:

  • key management
  • address derivation
  • signing functionality

Wallets can be derived from either a seed or a mnemonic and derivation path. You can also generate a new random HD wallet.

Wallet Derivation

Xpring4j can derive a wallet from a seed or it can derive a hierarchical deterministic wallet (HD Wallet) from a mnemonic and derivation path.

Hierarchical Deterministic Wallets

A hierarchical deterministic wallet is created using a mnemonic and a derivation path. Simply pass the mnemonic and derivation path to the wallet generation function. Note that you can pass null for the derivation path and have a default path be used instead.


String mnemonic = "abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon about";

Wallet hdWallet1 = new Wallet(mnemonic, null); // Has default derivation path
Wallet hdWallet2 = new Wallet(mnemonic, Wallet.getDefaultDerivationPath()); // Same as hdWallet1

Wallet hdWallet = new Wallet(mnemonic, "m/44'/144'/0'/0/1"); // Wallet with custom derivation path.
Seed-Based Wallets

You can construct a seed based wallet by passing a base58check encoded seed string.


Wallet seedWallet = new Wallet("snRiAJGeKCkPVddbjB3zRwwoiYDBm1M");

Wallet Generation

Xpring4j can generate a new and random HD Wallet. The result of a wallet generation call is a tuple which contains the following:

  • A randomly generated mnemonic
  • The derivation path used, which is the default path
  • A reference to the new wallet

// Generate a random wallet.
WalletGenerationResult generationResult = Wallet.generateRandomWallet();
Wallet newWallet = generationResult.getWallet();

// Wallet can be recreated with the artifacts of the initial generation.
Wallet copyOfNewWallet = new Wallet(generationResult.getMnemonic(), generationResult.getDerivationPath());

Wallet Properties

A generated wallet can provide its public key, private key, and address on the XRP ledger.


String mnemonic = "abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon about";

Wallet wallet = new Wallet(mnemonic, null);

System.out.println(wallet.getAddress()); // X7u4MQVhU2YxS4P9fWzQjnNuDRUkP3GM6kiVjTjcQgUU3Jr
System.out.println(wallet.getPublicKey()); // 031D68BC1A142E6766B2BDFB006CCFE135EF2E0E2E94ABB5CF5C9AB6104776FBAE
System.out.println(wallet.getPrivateKey()); // 0090802A50AA84EFB6CDB225F17C27616EA94048C179142FECF03F4712A07EA7A4

Signing / Verifying

A wallet can also sign and verify arbitrary hex messages. Generally, users should use the functions on XpringClient to perform cryptographic functions rather than using these low level APIs.


String mnemonic = "abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon about";
String message = "deadbeef";

Wallet wallet = new Wallet(mnemonic, null);

String signature = wallet.sign(message);
wallet.verify(message, signature); // true


XpringClient is a gateway into the XRP Ledger. XpringClient is initialized with a single parameter, which is the URL of the remote adapter (see [Server-Side Component][#server-side-component]).

import io.xpring.xrpl.XpringClient;

XpringClient xpringClient = new XpringClient();

Retrieving a Balance

A XpringClient can check the balance of an account on the XRP Ledger.

import io.xpring.xrpl.XpringClient;
import java.math.BigInteger;

XpringClient xpringClient = new XpringClient();

String address = "X7u4MQVhU2YxS4P9fWzQjnNuDRUkP3GM6kiVjTjcQgUU3Jr";
BigInteger balance = xpringClient.getBalance(address);
System.out.println(balance); // Logs a balance in drops of XRP

Checking Transaction Status

A XpringClient can check the status of an transaction on the XRP Ledger.

Xpring4J returns the following transaction states:

  • SUCCEEDED: The transaction was successfully validated and applied to the XRP Ledger.
  • FAILED: The transaction was successfully validated but not applied to the XRP Ledger. Or the operation will never be validated.
  • PENDING: The transaction has not yet been validated, but may be validated in the future.
  • UNKNOWN: The transaction status could not be determined.

Note: For more information, see Reliable Transaction Submission and Transaction Results.

These states are determined by the TransactionStatus enum.

import io.xpring.xrpl.XpringClient;
import io.xpring.xrpl.TransactionStatus;

XpringClient xpringClient = new XpringClient();

String transactionHash = "2CBBD2523478848DA256F8EBFCBD490DD6048A4A5094BF8E3034F57EA6AA0522";
TransactionStatus transactionStatus = xpringClient.xpringClient.getTransactionStatus(transactionHash); // TransactionStatus.SUCCEEDED

Sending XRP

A XpringClient can send XRP to other accounts on the XRP Ledger.

Note: The payment operation will block the calling thread until the operation reaches a definitive and irreversible success or failure state.

import java.math.BigInteger;
import io.xpring.xrpl.Wallet;
import io.xpring.xrpl.XpringClient;

// Amount of XRP to send.
BigInteger amount = new BigInteger("1");

// Wallet to send from.
Wallet wallet = new Wallet("snYP7oArxKepd3GPDcrjMsJYiJeJB");

// Destination address.
String destinationAddress = "X7u4MQVhU2YxS4P9fWzQjnNuDRUkP3GM6kiVjTjcQgUU3Jr";

String transactionHash = xpringClient.send(amount, destinationAddress, wallet);


Address validation

The Utils object provides an easy way to validate addresses.

import io.xpring.xrpl.Utils;

String rippleClassicAddress = "rnysDDrRXxz9z66DmCmfWpq4Z5s4TyUP3G";
String rippleXAddress = "X7jjQ4d6bz1qmjwxYUsw6gtxSyjYv5iWPqPEjGqqhn9Woti";
String bitcoinAddress = "1DiqLtKZZviDxccRpowkhVowsbLSNQWBE8";

Utils.isValidAddress(rippleClassicAddress); // returns true
Utils.isValidAddress(rippleXAddress); // returns true
Utils.isValidAddress(bitcoinAddress); // returns false

You can also validate if an address is an X-Address or a classic address.

import io.xpring.xrpl.Utils;

String rippleClassicAddress = "rnysDDrRXxz9z66DmCmfWpq4Z5s4TyUP3G";
String rippleXAddress = "X7jjQ4d6bz1qmjwxYUsw6gtxSyjYv5iWPqPEjGqqhn9Woti";
String bitcoinAddress = "1DiqLtKZZviDxccRpowkhVowsbLSNQWBE8";

Utils.isValidXAddress(rippleClassicAddress); // returns false
Utils.isValidXAddress(rippleXAddress); // returns true
Utils.isValidXAddress(bitcoinAddress); // returns false

Utils.isValidClassicAddress(rippleClassicAddress); // returns true
Utils.isValidClassicAddress(rippleXAddress); // returns false
Utils.isValidClassicAddress(bitcoinAddress); // returns false

X-Address Encoding

You can encode and decode X-Addresses with the SDK.

import io.xpring.xrpl.Utils;

String rippleClassicAddress = "rnysDDrRXxz9z66DmCmfWpq4Z5s4TyUP3G"
ClassicAddress classicAddress = ImmutableClassicAddress.builder()

// Encode an X-Address.
String xAddress = Utils.encodeXAddress(rippleClassicAddress); // X7jjQ4d6bz1qmjwxYUsw6gtxSyjYv5xRB7JM3ht8XC4P45P

// Decode an X-Address.
ClassicAddressdecodedClassicAddress = Utils.decodeXAddress(xAddress);
System.out.println(decodedClassicAddress.address()); // rnysDDrRXxz9z66DmCmfWpq4Z5s4TyUP3G
System.out.println(decodedClassicAddress.tag()); // 12345
