ScalikeJDBC Extension: Non-blocking APIs in the JDBC way

ScalikeJDBC-Async provides non-blocking APIs to talk with PostgreSQL and MySQL in the JDBC way.

This library is built with postgrsql-async and mysql-async,incredible works by @mauricio.

ScalikeJDBC Logo


ScalikeJDBC is a tidy SQL-based DB access library for Scala developers. This library naturally wraps JDBC APIs and provides you easy-to-use APIs.

Important Notice

ScalikeJDBC-Async is still in the beta stage. If you don't have motivation to investigate or fix issues by yourself, we recommend you waiting until stable version release someday.

Supported RDBMS

  • PostgreSQL
  • MySQL


Add scalikejdbc-async to your dependencies.

libraryDependencies ++= Seq(
  "org.scalikejdbc"     %% "scalikejdbc-async" % "0.6.+",
  "com.github.mauricio" %% "postgresql-async"  % "0.2.+",
  "com.github.mauricio" %% "mysql-async"       % "0.2.+",
  "org.slf4j"           %  "slf4j-simple"      % "1.7.+" // slf4j implementation

If you're a Play2 user, use play-plugin too!

import scalikejdbc._, async._
import scala.concurrent._, duration._,

// set up connection pool (that's all you need to do)
AsyncConnectionPool.singleton("jdbc:postgresql://localhost:5432/scalikejdbc", "sa", "sa")

// create a new record within a transaction
val created: Future[Company] = AsyncDB.localTx { implicit tx =>
  for {
    company <- Company.create("ScalikeJDBC, Inc.", Some(""))
    seratch <- Programmer.create("seratch", Some(
    gakuzzzz <- Programmer.create("gakuzzzz", Some(
    xuwei_k <- Programmer.create("xuwei-k", Some(
  } yield company

Await.result(created, 5.seconds)

created.foreach { newCompany: Company =>

  // delete a record and rollback
  val withinTx: Future[Unit] = AsyncDB.localTx { implicit tx =>
    for {
      restructuring <- Programmer.findAllBy(sqls.eq(p.companyId, { 
        programmers => programmers.foreach(_.destroy()) 
      dissolution <- newCompany.destroy()
      failure <- sql"Just joking!".update.future
    } yield ()

  try Await.result(withinTx, 5.seconds)
  catch { case e: Exception => log.debug(e.getMessage, e) }

  // rollback expected
  val company = AsyncDB.withPool { implicit s =>
  Await.result(company, 5.seconds)
  val found: Option[Company]= company.value.get.get
  found.isDefined should be(true)

Transactional queries should be executed in series. You cannot use Future.traverse or Future.sequence.

Play2 Example

See the play-sample project:


Is it production-ready?

ScalikeJDBC-Async and postgrsql-async and mysql-async basically works fine. However, to be honest, ScalikeJBDC-Async doesn't have much of a record of production applications.

Is it possible to combine scalikejdbc-async with normal scalikejdbc?

Yes, it's possible. See this example.

Why isn't it a part of scalikejdbc project now?

This library is still in alpha stage. If this library becomes stable enough, it will be merged into the ScalikeJDBC project.
