Spring Data YugabyteDB – Getting Started!

Spring Data modules are widely used Spring Framework projects for implementing database access in Java applications. Spring Data provides consistent and familiar APIs for querying the data by supporting Data Repository and Template methods, reducing the boilerplate code required for establishing database connection and queries.

For developers and architects, the standard set of APIs provided by Spring Data abstracts away the need to learn the database-specific query language, reducing ramp-up time and increasing developer velocity.

Announcing Spring Data YugabyteDB

YugabyteDB is the database of choice for building stateful cloud native apps that require resilience and scale. YugabyteDB offers Spring developers an easy way to deploy a transactional, resilient and geo-distributed database in their application stack from the outset, while also providing flexibility and  scalability as requirements change. The Spring community has always been a major influence on what we build at Yugabyte. Many of our customers rely on the immensely popular Spring Boot framework to build microservices.

Connecting a Spring Boot Application to Yugabyte Cloud and Deploying It on Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS)

Spring Boot is one of the most popular frameworks for building cloud native applications. It makes configuring an application easy and offers tons of starters to get you off the ground quickly. Each Spring Boot application is stand-alone and self-contained, which makes them easy to deploy in a distributed fashion – to containers or, even better, on Kubernetes.

Yugabyte Cloud is a perfect match for Spring Boot applications, especially ones made highly available with Kubernetes.

Schema Versioning in YugabyteDB Using Flyway

Introduction

As developers, many of us are aware of source versioning which helps us easily track and manage changes to the source code of our applications. Schema versioning is to databases what source versioning is to the applications. It helps track and manage the changes to the databases that our applications rely on.

In this blog post, we will talk about using Flyway – one of the most popular tools that simplify schema versioning for databases –

Using Sequelize with YugabyteDB

Sequelize is a promise-based Node.js ORM tool that allows us to interact with databases using javascript instead of SQL. In simple terms, Object Relational Mapping is a process for accessing a relational database using object-oriented languages like javascript. For more information on the features in Sequelize, you can check out their documentation site.

Sequelize Node.js package already has support for databases like Postgres, MySQL, MariaDB, SQLite, and Microsoft SQL Server.
