H2 database

By default Streama uses an embedded database. This is created in the same folder that you start streama from and are the files and streama.trace.db.


To use MySQL as your data backend you need to install a MySQL compatible database server. Streama recommends and tests against mariaDB. Once your database is installed you need to create the database (ie with: CREATE DATABASE). Then configure your application.yml to use mysql:

            driverClassName:  'com.mysql.jdbc.Driver'
            url: jdbc:mysql://MYSQL_SERVER_IP/MYSQL_DATABASE
            username: MYSQL_USER
            password: MYSQL_PASSWORD

PostgresSQL or Others

Currently PostgresSQL is not supported (see issue #409) but is planned.

Support for any other database is not planned or tested.
