A plugin that integrates the Cassandra datastore into Grails, providing a GORM API onto it


Add the following plugin definition to your BuildConfig:
compile ':cassandra:«version»'

Also, due to a problem in the Grails 2.3.7 and below dependency graph which is fixed in 2.3.8 and above you need to explicitly define the following dependencies in your BuildConfig if you are using 2.3.7 or below:

dependencies {
   compile 'org.grails:grails-datastore-gorm:3.1.3.RELEASE'
   compile 'org.grails:grails-datastore-core:3.1.3.RELEASE'
   test 'org.grails:grails-datastore-simple:3.1.3.RELEASE'


Apache Cassandra is a massively scalable open source NoSQL database. Cassandra can be used for managing large amounts of data across multiple data centers and the cloud.

This project aims to provide an object-mapping layer on top of Cassandra 2.0 to ease common activities such as:

  • Marshalling from Cassandra to Groovy/Java types and back again
  • Support for GORM dynamic finders, criteria and named queries
  • Session-managed transactions
  • Validating domain instances backed by the Cassandra datastore
  • Cassandra schema creation
