.Net/C++ Extend client tutorial

TODO: CREATE WINDOWS BATCH FILES FOR TUTORIAL

Warning

This is a new page and it is actively being worked on and so the content is likely to change whilst it gets refined and improved - any feedback or comments are welcome :-)

This tutorial is aimed at non-Java developers that need to launch a simple cluster comprising of at least one Extend proxy and at least one storage-enabled member (cache server), thus enabling them to having a fully working ‘mini-cluster’ for their .Net or C++ Extend client code to connect to.

Assumptions

Before we get started - let’s state a few assumptions:

  • You have Java installed

(ideally a Java Development Kit - JDK) as this includes a server mode for Java.

See note #1, maybe assume not and that that is something they can add.

This tutorial uses a sample littlegrid project called small-sample, the tutorial aims to get you up and running as quickly as possible.

  1. So, the files we are interested in just to launch the mini-cluster are:

    launch-mini-cluster.sh littlegrid-builder-override.properties small-sample-datagrid-cluster-1.0-SNAPSHOT.jar

  2. Before proceeding further some environment variables need to be set, these are used so that the batch file doesn’t need hard-coded paths for Coherence and littlegrid.

set COHERENCE_JAR=.../coherence.jar set LITTLEGRID_JAR=../littlegrid...version-blah.jar

Remember the server flag might not work
