API reference

The following table outlines the API packages and reference docs for Pulsar Java clients.

PackageDescriptionMaven Artifact

org.apache.pulsar.client.adminJava admin API.
See Admin API overview for more reference.
org.apache.pulsar.client.allInclude both pulsar-client and pulsar-client-admin.
Both pulsar-client and pulsar-client-admin are independently shaded packages. Consequently, the applications using both pulsar-client and pulsar-client-admin have redundant shaded classes. It would be troublesome if you introduce new dependencies but forget to update shading rules.
In this case, you can use pulsar-client-all, which shades dependencies only one time and reduces the size of dependencies.
