Spring Data Redis


Spring Data Redis, part of the larger Spring Data family, provides easy configuration and access to Redis from Spring applications. It offers both low-level and high-level abstractions for interacting with the store, freeing the user from infrastructural concerns.


  • Connection package as low-level abstraction across multiple Redis drivers(Lettuce and Jedis).

  • Exception translation to Spring’s portable Data Access exception hierarchy for Redis driver exceptions.

  • RedisTemplate that provides a high-level abstraction for performing various Redis operations, exception translation and serialization support.

  • Pubsub support (such as a MessageListenerContainer for message-driven POJOs).

  • Redis Sentinel and Redis Cluster support.

  • Reactive API using the Lettuce driver.

  • JDK, String, JSON and Spring Object/XML mapping serializers.

  • JDK Collection implementations on top of Redis.

  • Atomic counter support classes.

  • Sorting and Pipelining functionality.

  • Dedicated support for SORT, SORT/GET pattern and returned bulk values.

  • Redis implementation for Spring 3.1 cache abstraction.

  • Automatic implementation of Repository interfaces including support for custom query methods using @EnableRedisRepositories.

  • CDI support for repositories.

Configure RedisTemplate….

<bean id="jedisConnFactory"

<!-- redis template definition -->
<bean id="redisTemplate"

Inject and use RedisTemplate or any of its opsForX() instances….

public class Example {

    // inject the actual template
    private RedisTemplate<String, String> template;

    // inject the template as ListOperations
    // can also inject as Value, Set, ZSet, and HashOperations
    private ListOperations<String, String> listOps;

    public void addLink(String userId, URL url) {
        listOps.leftPush(userId, url.toExternalForm());
        // or use template directly
