Redis Connection (Aspire 2)
Factory Name  com.searchtechnologies.aspire:aspire-redis-connection
subType  default
Inputs  None
Outputs  Job variable (when used as a pipeline stage), holds a Redis connection.

The Aspire Redis Connection opens a connection to a Redis database. When requesting a connection, one is returned from the connection pool if it exists. If there are no available connections in the pool, then a new one will be allocated.

When used as a pipeline stage, the stage will fetch a connection from the connection pool and will store it as a job variable with a custom name defined at initialization time so it can be used by pipeline modules down-stream. It also puts a connection handler so that when the job is closed, the connection will be automatically returned back to the connection pool.


Element Type Default Description
redisServer string localhost Hostname of the Redis server
redisPort Integer 6379 Port where the Redis server is hosted.
redisTimeout Integer 10000 Redis Connection timeout.
database string aspire_database1 Name of the database to use.
variable string redisConn Name of the job variable that will hold the redis connection.
maxRetries Integer 3 If there is a connection failure, the number of times to retry before failing the action.
metaDB Integer -1 Database number in Redis to store a mapping of database names and the corresponding Redis database number. If -1, uses the HASH storing approach in Redis.

Example Configuration

  <component factoryName="aspire-redis-connection" name="RedisAllDocuments" subType="default">

Example Use Within A Pipeline

  <pipeline name="process-patent" default="true">
      <stage component="FetchUrl" />
      <stage component="LoadXML" />
      <stage component="RedisAllDocuments"/>

      <!-- Now that the connection has been opened and attached to the job, you can
           use the connection inside of Groovy scripts with the "redisAllDocuments" variable.

           In the future, there may be other components which will use it as well.

Example use from within a Groovy scripting component

<component name="TestRedis" subType="default" factoryName="aspire-groovy">
     def documentTotal = redisAllDocuments.dbSize();

     redisAllDocuments.set("myKey", "myValue");

Available methods

  • set(): Single key/value set.
  • get(): Single key get.
  • mset(): Multivalue set
  • mget(): Multivalue get
