Right now, there is work in progress on a pure Scala client called "Riakka". Francisco, myself and viktor have been doing some hacking on this. 

We were actually working on it late last night but got talking to the JavaPosse guys about it which resulted in less hacking and more drinking ;-) 

Cheers, Tim

The Java client lib only seems to be useful when performing rudimentary CRUD operations and link walking. Do I have to write map reduce 'queries' in Erlang? and If I do, are there any examples out there showing how a query written in Erlang can be executed by Java with the results returned in JSON. I hope that makes sense. I know with CouchDB my queries were all written in javascript and stored as documents on the server, so getting the results was just a GET request. I'm hoping it's that easy with Riak.
