Spring Data GemFire

The primary goal of the Spring GemFire project is to make it easier to build highly scalable Spring-powered applications using GemFire as a distributed data management platform.


For examples on using the Spring GemFire, see the samples project.

Getting Help

Read the main project website and the User Guide. Look at the source code and the JavaDocs. For more detailed questions, use the forum. If you are new to Spring as well as to Spring GemFire, look for information about Spring projects.

Quick Start

For those in a hurry:

  • Download the jar through Maven:

      <name>Springframework Maven SNAPSHOT Repository</name>
  • Configure a GemFire cache and Region (replicated, partitioned, client and so on):

    <beans xmlns="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans"
      http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans/spring-beans.xsd
      http://www.springframework.org/schema/gemfire http://www.springframework.org/schema/gemfire/spring-gemfire.xsd">
      <gfe:cache />
      <gfe:partitioned-region id="partition" copies="2" total-buckets="4">
      <bean id="gemfireTemplate" class="org.springframework.data.gemfire.GemfireTemplate" p:region-ref="someRegion"/>
  • Use the Region to read/write data:

    region.put(Long.valueOf(1), new Person("Jane", "Smith"));
  • Or/And GemFireTemplate to interact with GemFire:

    template.query("person = 1");

Before we accept a non-trivial patch or pull request we will need you to sign the contributor's agreement.
