Spring Data For Pivotal GemFire and Apache Geode Examples
This project provides a number of examples to get you started using Spring Data for Apache Geode or Pivotal GemFire. These examples are designed to work with [Spring Data for Pivotal GemFire] (http://projects.spring.io/spring-data-gemfire) 1.2 or higher and are organized into the following sub projects:
NOTE: Where ever Pivotal GemFire is referenced, this equally applies to Apache Geode and where ever Spring Data for Pivotal GemFire is referenced, this equally applies to Spring Data for Apache Geode.
These examples show case the application programming model provided by Spring Data for Pivotal GemFire and are not concerned as much with of configuration of Apache Geode or Pivotal GemFire components such as Cache and Region.
The Quickstart examples currently include:
- spring-cache - Using Spring's Cache abstraction with Pivotal GemFire
- repository - Using Spring Data Repositories with Pivotal GemFire
- gemfire-template - Using GemfireTemplate to simplify and enhance accessing Region data
- cq - Configuring and using Pivotal GemFire Continuous Queries
- transaction - Demonstrates the use of Pivotal GemFire transactions
These examples are focused more on configuring Apache Geode or Pivotal GemFire components such as Caches and Regions to address various scenarios.
The Basic examples currently include:
- replicated - A simple demonstration of using a REPLICATE Region in a peer-to-peer configuration
- replicated-cs - Similar to the above with a client-server configuration
- partitioned - Demonstrates the use of a PARTITION Region and a custom PartitionResolver
- persistence - Demonstrates the use of persistent backup and disk overflow
- write-through - Demonstrates loading data from and executing synchronous (write-through) or asynchronous (write-behind) updates to a database*
- function - Demonstrates the use of Pivotal GemFire function execution
- java-config - Demonstrates how to configure a Pivotal GemFire Server (data node) using Spring's Java-based Container Configuration and Spring Data for Pivotal GemFire
These examples demonstrate additional Apache Geode or Pivotal GemFire features and require a full installation of either Apache Geode or Pivotal GemFire.
You can acquire Apache Geode bits from here.
You can download a trial version of Pivotal GemFire from here.
- gateway - Demonstrates how to use and configure a WAN Gateway
- locator-failover - Demonstrates how Pivotal GemFire handles Locator down situations
Running The Examples
This project is built with Gradle and each example may be run with Gradle or within your Java IDE. If you are using Eclipse or Spring Tool Suite, go to the directory where you downloaded this project and type:
If you are using IntelliJ IDEA,
Detailed instructions for each example may be found in its own README file.
Running a cache server with custom configuration
As a convenience, this project includes GenericServer.java used to start a cache server with a custom Spring configuration. Simply point to a valid Spring configuration on the file system using the built in task:
./gradlew -q run-generic-server -Pargs=path-to-spring-config-xml-file
This is useful for testing or experimentation with client/server scenarios. If your application requires additional jars to be deployed to the server, you can create a lib directory under the project root (e.g., spring-gemfire-examples) and drop them in there. The gradle build is already configured to look there.
Note, this is a 'quick and dirty' way to do this. In a shared integration or production environment, you should use the Pivotal GemFire Shell program, gfsh.
