Spring is coming! – ArangoDB meets Spring Data

00GeneralTags:

This year we got a lot of requests from our customers to provide Spring Data support for ArangoDB. So we listened and teamed up with one of our bigger customers from the financial sector to develop a Spring Data implementation for ArangoDB. We have also made an extensive demo on how to use Spring Data ArangoDB with an example data set of Game of Thrones characters and locations. So, Spring is not only coming… it is already there!

Introducing the new ArangoDB Java driver with load balancing and advanced fallback

02GeneralTags: ,

The newest release 4.3.2 of the official ArangoDB Java driver comes with load balancing for cluster setups and advanced fallback mechanics.

Load balancing strategies

Round robin

There are two different strategies for load balancing that the Java driver provides. The first and most common strategy is the round robin way. Round robin does, what the name already assumes, a round robin load balancing where a list of known coordinators in the cluster is iterated through. Each database operation uses a different coordinator than the one before. Read more

ArangoDB Spark Connector

00Drivers, JavaTags:

Currently we are diving deeper into the Apache Spark world. We started with an implementation of a Spark-Connector written in Scala. The connector supports loading of data from ArangoDB into Spark and vice-versa. Today we release a first prototype with an aim of including our community into the development process early to build a product that fits your needs. Your feedback is more than welcome! Read more

Arangodb Java Driver and Graphs – Part 2

03Graphs, Java, Query LanguageTags: , , ,

After defining a graph and filling it with some vertices and edges (see part 1), the time has come to retrieve information out of the graph.

Please take a look at the defined graph operations of ArangoDB. These will be the base for our next examples. (Yes, there may be other ways to get the results, this post does not claim completeness!)

We will start with some easy stuff and then smoothly advance in complexity.

Question: “How many edges are defined within the graph?”

Arangodb Java Driver and Graphs – Part 1

00Graphs, JavaTags: , , ,

With ArangoDB 2.2 the new graph API was released featuring multi collection graphs (see blog). With the new version (2.2.1) of arangodb-java-driver the new graph API is supported. In the following you can find a small example of creating a graph with Java.

For the import via maven and configuring the driver, please read the Basics and Driver Setup. For the following we assume, that arangodbDriver is a configured instance of the driver.

So let’s start the whole thing…

How to use the ArangoDB Java Driver in batch and asynchronous mode?

00General, JavaTags: , ,

The current arangodb-java-driver supports the usage of ArangoDB’s batch and asynchronous interface. This post will guide you through the usage of these features.

The batch interface

The batch interface enables the user to stack a series of calls and execute them in a batch request. Each stacked request returns a request id that can be used to retrieve the single results from the batch response. So how do you use this feature in the java driver ?

First we create an instance of the java driver:
