Dubbo Spring Boot Project

Dubbo Spring Boot Project makes it easy to create Spring Boot application using Dubbo as RPC Framework. What's more, it aslo provides

Dubbo |ˈdʌbəʊ| is a high-performance, java based RPC framework open-sourced by Alibaba. As in many RPC systems, dubbo is based around the idea of defining a service, specifying the methods that can be called remotely with their parameters and return types. On the server side, the server implements this interface and runs a dubbo server to handle client calls. On the client side, the client has a stub that provides the same methods as the server.

Current Project is a legacy one for maintaining Spring Boot 1.x


Released Version

You can introduce the latest dubbo-spring-boot-starter to your project by adding the following dependency to your pom.xml


        <!-- Spring Boot -->
        <!-- Dubbo dependencies -->

    <!-- Dubbo Spring Boot Starter -->

If your project failed to resolve the dependency, try to add the following repository:

Build from Source

If you'd like to attempt to experience latest features, you also can build from source as follow:

  1. Maven install current project in your local repository.

Maven install = mvn install

Getting Started

If you don't know about Dubbo , please take a few minutes to learn . After that you could dive deep into dubbo user guide.

Usually , There are two usage scenarios for Dubbo applications , one is Dubbo service(s) provider , another is Dubbo service(s) consumer, thus let's get a quick start on them.

First of all , we suppose an interface as Dubbo RPC API that a service provider exports and a service client consumes :

public interface DemoService {

    String sayHello(String name);


Dubbo service(s) provider

Service Provider implements DemoService :

        version = "${demo.service.version}",
        application = "${}",
        protocol = "${}",
        registry = "${}"
public class DefaultDemoService implements DemoService {

    public String sayHello(String name) {
        return "Hello, " + name + " (from Spring Boot)";


then , provides a bootstrap class :

public class DubboProviderDemo {

    public static void main(String[] args) {,args);



last , configures :

# Spring boot application = dubbo-provider-demo
server.port = 9090
management.port = 9091

# Service version
demo.service.version = 1.0.0

# Base packages to scan Dubbo Components (e.g @Service , @Reference)
dubbo.scan.base-packages  =

# Dubbo Config properties
## ApplicationConfig Bean = dubbo-provider-demo = dubbo-provider-demo

## ProtocolConfig Bean = dubbo = dubbo
dubbo.protocol.port = 12345

## RegistryConfig Bean = my-registry
dubbo.registry.address = N/A

DefaultDemoService's placeholders( ${}, ${}, ${} ) sources from

More details , please refer to Dubbo Provider Sample.

Dubbo service(s) consumer

Service consumer requires Spring Beans to reference DemoService :

public class DemoConsumerController {

    @Reference(version = "${demo.service.version}",
            application = "${}",
            url = "dubbo://localhost:12345")
    private DemoService demoService;

    public String sayHello(@RequestParam String name) {
        return demoService.sayHello(name);


then , also provide a bootstrap class :

@SpringBootApplication(scanBasePackages = "")
public class DubboConsumerDemo {

    public static void main(String[] args) {,args);



last , configures :

# Spring boot application = dubbo-consumer-demo
server.port = 8080
management.port = 8081

# Service version
demo.service.version = 1.0.0

# Dubbo Config properties
## ApplicationConfig Bean = dubbo-consumer-demo = dubbo-consumer-demo

## ProtocolConfig Bean = dubbo = dubbo
dubbo.protocol.port = 12345

If DubboProviderDemo works well , please mark sure Dubbo service(s) is active.

More details , please refer to Dubbo Consumer Sample

Building from Source

If you want to try out thr latest features of Dubbo Spring Boot , it can be easily built with the maven wrapper. Your JDK is 1.7 or above.

$ ./mvnw clean install


There are some modules in Dubbo Spring Boot Project , let's take a look at below overview :


The main usage of dubbo-spring-boot-parent is providing dependencies management for other modules.


dubbo-spring-boot-autoconfigure uses Spring Boot‘s @EnableAutoConfiguration which helps core Dubbo’s components to be auto-configured by DubboAutoConfiguration. It reduces code, eliminates XML configuration.


dubbo-spring-boot-actuator provides production-ready features (e.g. health checks, endpoints, and externalized configuration).


dubbo-spring-boot-starter is a standard Spring Boot Starter, which contains dubbo-spring-boot-autoconfigure and dubbo-spring-boot-actuator. It will be imported into your application directly.


The samples project of Dubbo Spring Boot that includes two parts:

Dubbo Provider Sample

Dubbo Service will be exported on localhost with port 12345.

Dubbo Consumer Sample

Dubbo Service will be consumed at Spring WebMVC Controller .
