Lagom Java API Extensions

This library is an extension of Lagom Java/Scala DSL.

Note: We try not to change the API, but before the release of stable version 1.0.0 API may be changed.

Versions compatibility

Lagom Extensions Lagom Scala
0.+ 1.5.+


Message Protocols (Java ✓ / Scala ✗ )

MessageProtocols have constants for most used message protocols (application/json, application/json; charset=utf-8, etc). See Javadoc for more information.

Response Headers (Java ✓ / Scala ✗ )

ResponseHeaders have constants of ResponseHeader and utilities functions for instantiation Pair<ResponseHeader, T>.

Code example:

// Lagom
(headers, request) -> { 
    return completedFuture(
        new Pair<>(

// Lagom Extensions
(headers, request) -> { 
    return completedFuture(okJson(result));

Simple Kafka Producer (Java ✓ / Scala ✗ )

At this moment Lagom (1.4.+) doesn't provide any framework-level API to produce records to topics declared in subscriber-only service descriptors. In such cases, we need to use the underlying Alpakka Kafka directly to publish.

  1. It is useful to place TopicDescriptor in the subscriber-only service descriptor.
public interface FooTopicService extends Service {

    TopicDescriptor<FooTopicRecord> FOO_TOPIC = TopicDescriptor.of("foo-topic", FooTopicRecord.class);
    Topic<String> fooTopic();

    default Descriptor descriptor() {
        return named("foo-topic-service")
            .withTopics(topic(FOO_TOPIC.getId(), this::fooTopic))

At the topic call declaration you may also specify .withProperties(KafkaProperties.partitionKeyStrategy, ...) to support topic record key generation (see Lagom docs).

  1. You should inject SimpleTopicProducersRegistry and register producers for the declared topics (other details are intentionally omitted)
public class BarServiceImpl implements BarService {

    private SimpleTopicProducersRegistry registry;

    public BarServiceImpl(FooTopicService fooTopicService, SimpleTopicProducersRegistry registry) {
        this.registry = registry.register(fooTopicService);
  1. Now you able to retrieve producer for the desired topic from the registry and to publish record easily.
public ServiceCall<FooTopicRecord, NotUsed> publishToFoo() {
    return fooTopicRecord ->
                .thenApply( x -> NotUsed.getInstance() );
  1. SimpleTopicProducer relies on akka.kafka.producer config by default (see Akka producer, Akka source). You also may provide a separate config for each topic producer. In that case, config path should be <topic-name>.producer instead of akka.kafka.producer.
foo-topic.producer {
  # Tuning parameter of how many sends that can run in parallel.
  parallelism = 100

  # Duration to wait for `KafkaConsumer.close` to finish.
  close-timeout = 60s
  # Fully qualified config path which holds the dispatcher configuration
  # to be used by the producer stages. Some blocking may occur.
  # When this value is empty, the dispatcher configured for the stream
  # will be used.
  use-dispatcher = "akka.kafka.default-dispatcher"

  # The time interval to commit a transaction when using the `Transactional.sink` or `Transactional.flow`
  eos-commit-interval = 100ms

  # Size of buffer in element count
  buffer-size = 100

  # Strategy that is used when incoming elements cannot fit inside the buffer.
  # Possible values: "dropHead", "backpressure", "dropBuffer", "dropNew", "dropTail", "fail".
  overflow-strategy = "dropHead"

  # Properties defined by org.apache.kafka.clients.producer.ProducerConfig
  # can be defined in this configuration section.
  kafka-clients {

Logging requests/responses of strict client HTTP calls with ConfiguredAhcWSClient

Unfortunately out-of-the-box Lagom doesn't support request/response logging for client strict HTTP calls. ConfiguredAhcWSClient is a simple custom implementation of the play.api.libs.ws.WSClient which Lagom uses to perform the strict client HTTP calls. It allows you to enable request/response (including the body) logging. It can be enabled in your application.conf as follows:

configured-ahc-ws-client.logging.enabled = true


How to use

All released artifacts are available in the Maven central repository. Just add a lagom-extensions to your service dependencies:

  • SBT
libraryDependencies += "org.taymyr.lagom" %% "lagom-extensions-java" % "X.Y.Z"
  • Maven

All snapshot artifacts are available in the Sonatype snapshots repository. This repository must be added in your build system.

  • SBT
resolvers ++= Resolver.sonatypeRepo("snapshots")
  • Maven


Contributions are very welcome.
