"RiakEntry" is unambiguous, self-documenting, and semantically correct. "Entry" would, in my mind, represent a very generic interface that defined various kinds of "Entry"s of things.

Likewise, I'd like to suggest RiakDoc

I guess it's more a matter of personal preference, but I'm not sure I like it as a general rule. It's not a very object-oriented approach, either, as it mixes concerns a little too much, in my mind.

I like it actually, though not surprising. Since I am using grails with riak.
All my standalone scripts are written in groovy but make use of riak java client.
