Welcome to XAP
XAP is a distributed, highly-scalable, In Memory Data Grid.
These instructions will get you a copy of the project up and running on your local machine for development and testing purposes.
Running XAP requires Java 6 or later.
Building XAP requires Java 8 or later (The core requires Java 6, but some optional components and integrations depend on features from higher Java version, so building the entire product requires Java 8).
In addition you'll need
Maven to build the project.
To build the entire product, simply run the
build script (either
.bat) located at the root folder. This builds all the modules and generates a product zip file at
If you're interested in building specific modules, switch to the relevant folder and use maven to build that module.
If this is your first experience with XAP, we recommend you check out the hello-world example located at the examples folder. Once you're done, check out the docs to learn more, and if you have any questions visit our community forum.
