ObjectBox Java (Kotlin, Android)

ObjectBox is a superfast object-oriented database with strong relation support. ObjectBox is embedded into your Android, Linux, macOS, or Windows app.

Latest version: 3.0.1 (2021/10/19)

Demo code using ObjectBox:

// Kotlin
val playlist = Playlist("My Favorites")
playlist.songs.add(Song("Lalala"))
playlist.songs.add(Song("Lololo"))
box.put(playlist)
// Java
Playlist playlist = new Playlist("My Favorites");
playlist.songs.add(new Song("Lalala"));
playlist.songs.add(new Song("Lololo"));
box.put(playlist);

Other languages/bindings

ObjectBox supports multiple platforms and languages. Besides JVM based languages like Java and Kotlin, ObjectBox also offers:

Gradle setup

For Android projects, add the ObjectBox Gradle plugin to your root build.gradle:

buildscript {
    ext.objectboxVersion = "3.0.1"
    repositories {        
        mavenCentral()    
    }
    dependencies {
        classpath("io.objectbox:objectbox-gradle-plugin:$objectboxVersion")
    }
}

And in your app's build.gradle apply the plugin:

// Using plugins syntax:
plugins {
    id("io.objectbox") // Add after other plugins.
}

// Or using the old apply syntax:
apply plugin: "io.objectbox" // Add after other plugins.

First steps

Create a data object class @Entity, for example "Playlist".

// Kotlin
@Entity data class Playlist( ... )

// Java
@Entity public class Playlist { ... }

Now build the project to let ObjectBox generate the class MyObjectBox for you.

Prepare the BoxStore object once for your app, e.g. in onCreate in your Application class:

boxStore = MyObjectBox.builder().androidContext(this).build();

Then get a Box class for the Playlist entity class:

Box<Playlist> box = boxStore.boxFor(Playlist.class);

The Box object gives you access to all major functions, like put, get, remove, and query.
