Basic Configuration and Programming
Basic Configuration and Programming describes how to configure distributed system and cache properties for your Apache Geode installation. For your applications, it provides guidance for writing code to manage your cache and distributed system connection, data regions, and data entries, including custom classes.
To work with your Apache Geode applications, you use a combination of configuration files and application code.
The Geode cache is the entry point to Geode caching management. Geode provides different APIs and XML configuration models to support the behaviors of different members.
The region is the core building block of the Apache Geode distributed system. All cached data is organized into data regions and you do all of your data puts, gets, and querying activities against them.
The data entry is the key/value pair where you store your data. You can manage your entries individually and in batches. To use domain objects for your entry values and keys, you need to follow Apache Geode requirements for data storage and distribution.
