# Hazelcast C# Client

C#/.NET client implementation for Hazelcast, the open source in-memory data grid. A comparison of features supported by the C# Client vs the Java client can be found here.

C# client is implemented using the Hazelcast Open Binary Client Protocol

## Documentation

The docs for the C# client can be reached at

## How to build

Hazelcast C# Client is developed using VS2013 Community Edition, which can be downloaded for free from Microsoft.

Strong name generation

Hazelcast assemblies are signed using a strong name key. To be able to build the project, you will need to create your own strong name key.

This can be done using the sn.exe tools which ships with .NET framework.

sn -k hazelcast.snk

Furthermore, you will need to update Hazelcast.Net/Properties/AssemblyInfo.cs with the new public key.

[assembly: System.Runtime.CompilerServices.InternalsVisibleTo(@"Hazelcast.Test, PublicKey=00240000049e....b3")]

To get the new public key, use the following commands:

sn -p hazelcast.snk hazelcast.key
sn -tp hazelcast.key

How to run tests

All the tests use NUnit, and require a hazelcast.jar and JVM to run the hazelcast instance. The script build.bat will attempt to download hazelcast.jar for the latest snapshot from Maven Central and will run the tests using the downloaded jar.
