CouchDB Java Connection

CouchDB connection
1. Log into  BitssCloud.

2. Create an environment with CouchDB database:

3. Check your email box for getting credentials to access CouchDB node:

 4. Then create a file mydb.cfg in Config Manager (folder HOME). This file contains information on connecting to CouchDB. This info will be read by your application: 

       5. In this step, you have to prepare part of java code that creates a connection to your DB 

import com.fourspaces.couchdb.*;
import java.util.Properties;
import java.util.logging.Level;
import java.util.logging.Logger;
public class CouchdbConnector {
    public boolean createDatabase(String name) {
        try {
            //Read file mydb.cfg
            Properties prop = new Properties();
            prop.load(new FileInputStream(System.getProperty("user.home") + "/mydb.cfg"));
            //Getting info we need: host, port, username, password
            String host = prop.getProperty("host").toString();
            int port = Integer.parseInt(prop.getProperty("port").toString());          
            String username = prop.getProperty("username").toString();
            String password = prop.getProperty("password").toString();
            Session dbSession = new Session(host, port, username, password);
            try {
            } catch (Exception e) {
                return false;
        } catch (IOException ex) {
            Logger.getLogger(CouchdbConnector.class.getName()).log(Level.SEVERE, null, ex);
        return true;

 NOTE: you have to upload all libraries that CouchDB connection needs! 6. Deploy application: CouchDB.war 
7. Run the deployed application and input the database name you want to create:

  Input database name:

                                               8. Check CouchDB server if it contains a “new” database: – run CouchDB instance in a browser;

 – input credentials that you got on e-mail;

                                                                  – check database presence.
