Apache Beam Downloads

The easiest way to use Apache Beam is via one of the released versions in the Maven Central Repository.

For example, if you are developing using Maven and want to use the SDK for Java with the DirectRunner, add the following dependencies to your pom.xml file:

<dependency>
  <groupId>org.apache.beam</groupId>
  <artifactId>beam-sdks-java-core</artifactId>
  <version>0.4.0</version>
</dependency>
<dependency>
  <groupId>org.apache.beam</groupId>
  <artifactId>beam-runners-direct-java</artifactId>
  <version>0.4.0</version>
  <scope>runtime</scope>
</dependency>

Additionally, you may want to depend on additional SDK modules, such as IO connectors or other extensions, and additional runners to execute your pipeline at scale.

API Stability

Apache Beam uses semantic versioning. Version numbers use the form major.minor.incremental and are incremented as follows:

Please note that APIs marked @Experimental may change at any point and are not guaranteed to remain compatible across versions.

Additionally, any API may change before the first stable release, i.e., between versions denoted 0.x.y.
