Spring Boot Data Redis Tutorial with Examples


Redis is an open-source, in-memory data structure store that can be used as a cache, message broker, and more. Spring Boot provides excellent support for integrating with Redis through the Spring Data Redis project. In this tutorial, we’ll go through the steps of setting up a Spring Boot application with Redis integration.

Step 1: Create a Spring Boot Project

Use Spring Initializr or your preferred method to create a new Spring Boot project. Include the “Spring Web” and “Spring Data Redis” dependencies.

Step 2: Set Up Redis Server

Ensure that you have a Redis server running. You can install Redis locally or use a cloud-based Redis service. Update the or application.yml file with the Redis server information:


Step 3: Create a Model Class

Create a simple model class to represent the data you want to store in Redis. For example:

Step 4: Create a Redis Repository

Create a repository interface that extends CrudRepository provided by Spring Data Redis. For example:

Step 5: Create a Service

Create a service class to manage interactions with the Redis repository. Inject the BookRepository and implement methods for saving, retrieving, and deleting books.

Step 6: Create a Controller

Create a controller to expose endpoints for interacting with the Redis-backed service.

Step 7: Run and Test

Run your Spring Boot application. You can now use tools like Postman or CURL to interact with your Redis-backed endpoints:

  • To add a book: POST http://localhost:8080/books with a JSON payload.
  • To get a book: GET http://localhost:8080/books/{id}.
  • To delete a book: DELETE http://localhost:8080/books/{id}.

Step 8: Observe Redis Data

Connect to your Redis server using a client or command-line tool to observe the data stored in Redis.
