Using the Postgres client


Finagle Postgres is published on Maven Central. Use the following sbt snippet to bring it as a dependency.

libraryDependencies ++= Seq(
  "io.github.finagle" %% "finagle-postgres" % "0.12.0"

Connecting to the DB

val client = Postgres.Client()
  .withCredentials("user", Some("password"))
  .withSessionPool.maxSize(1) //optional; default is unbounded

Selecting with simple query

val f ="select * from users") {row =>
    User(row.getString("email"), row.getString("name"))
logger.debug("Responded " + Await.result(f))

Integration Tests

sbt test won't run integration tests by default. In order to make it easier for development, a database environment is provided via Docker. After installing Docker and docker compose, run:

docker-compose up -d

A few environment variables need to be provided as well:

export PG_HOST_PORT=localhost:5432 PG_DBNAME=finagle_postgres_test PG_USER=postgres

With the database and variables in place, all tests will be executed. More details in IntegrationSpec
