README.md

Hazelcast is a clustering and highly scalable data distribution platform for Java.

With its various distributed data structures, distributed caching capabilities, elastic nature, memcache support, integration with Spring and Hibernate and more importantly with so many happy users, Hazelcast is feature-rich, enterprise-ready and developer-friendly in-memory data grid solution.

Features:

  • Distributed implementations of java.util.{Queue, Set, List, Map}
  • Distributed implementation of java.util.concurrency.locks.Lock
  • Distributed implementation of java.util.concurrent.ExecutorService
  • Distributed MultiMap for one-to-many relationships
  • Distributed Topic for publish/subscribe messaging
  • Synchronous (write-through) and asynchronous (write-behind) persistence
  • Transaction support
  • Socket level encryption support for secure clusters
  • Second level cache provider for Hibernate
  • Monitoring and management of the cluster via JMX
  • Dynamic HTTP session clustering
  • Support for cluster info and membership events
  • Dynamic discovery, scaling, partitioning with backups and fail-over

Building From Source

Pull latest from repo git pull origin master and use Maven install (or package) to build mvn clean install.

Testing

Hazelcast has 3 testing profiles:

  • Default: Type mvn test to run quick/integration tests (those can be run in-parallel without using network).
  • Slow Tests: Type mvn test -P slow-test to run tests those are either slow or cannot be run in-parallel.
  • All Tests: Type mvn test -P all-tests to run all test serially using network.
