This version of Pivotal GemFire requires Java 8 release 121 or a more recent version.
The Pivotal GemFire product download does not include Java.
Download and install a supported JRE or JDK on each system running GemFire.
Pivotal recommends the installation of a full JDK (and not just a JRE)
to obtain better performance with
gfsh status and
gfsh stop commands.
For optimal disk-store performance, Pivotal recommends the use of
ext4 file systems when operating on Linux or Solaris platforms.
