Buckets and Clusters
The Couchbase Java SDK provides an API for managing a Couchbase cluster programmatically.
The primary means for managing clusters is through the Couchbase Web UI which provides an easy to use interface for adding, removing, monitoring, and modifying buckets. In some instances you may wish to have a programmatic interface. For example, if you wish to manage a cluster from a setup script, or if you are setting up buckets in test scaffolding.
The SDK also comes with some convenience functionality for common Couchbase management requests — see the Provisioning Cluster Resources guide.
Management operations in the Java SDK may be performed through several interfaces depending on the object:
To create or delete a bucket, call the bucket manager with the
buckets() call on the cluster:
BucketManager manager = cluster.buckets(); bucketSettings = BucketSettings.create("myBucket"); manager.createBucket(bucketSettings);
This class is also used to expose information about an existing bucket (
manager.getBucket(string)) or to update an existing bucket (
The default Collection & Default Scope will be used automatically.
