Today I’m very excited to announce the beta release of a project we’ve been beavering away on behind the scenes for some time now: Couchbase Distributed ACID Transactions!
This video is a quick guide for you, the busy Java developer, on how to get started with the new API, including some important best practices you’ll want to implement. I’m not going to cover how transactions work, or dive into ACID, as there are other resources being released that cover that.
And I want to stress you can get started with this API today – right now, in fact. Couchbase Transactions are available for Community Edition, there are no new services to configure, and there’s nothing new to setup on the cluster. Just add a line to your gradle or Maven project to pull in the library, and you’re ready to go – checkout our documentation for transactions and the Java API documentation to get started.
(And sorry, non-Java developers – our initial beta release is Java only, but we haven’t forgotten you! Releases for other languages are very much on the roadmap. Watch this space…)
