Using Spring Data with MariaDB Connector/R2DBC

Java developers can use MariaDB Connector/R2DBC to connect to MariaDB Enterprise using the Reactive Relational Database Connectivity (R2DBC) API. R2DBC operations are non-blocking, which makes it more scalable than Java's standard JDBC API. MariaDB Connector/R2DBC can be used with the very popular Spring Data framework, which can provide support for repositories, object mapping, and transaction management.

Overview

This page discusses how to use MariaDB Connector/R2DBC with the Spring Data framework.

For information on how to use MariaDB Connector/R2DBC with the native R2DBC API, see Using MariaDB Connector/R2DBC.
