VMware GemFire® REST API Reference
This section summarizes all available VMware GemFire® REST API resources and endpoints.
Note: This documentation covers the v1 release of VMware GemFire REST APIs for developing applications.
A VMware GemFire region is how VMware GemFire logically groups data within its cache. Regions stores data as entries, which are key-value pairs. Using the REST APIs you can read, add (or update), and delete region data.
VMware GemFire uses a query syntax based on OQL (Object Query Language) to query region data. Since VMware GemFire regions are key-value stores, values can range from simple byte arrays to complex nested objects.
VMware GemFire functions allows you to write and execute server-side transactions and data operations. These may include anything ranging from initializing components or third-party services or aggregating data.
Administrative endpoints provide management and monitoring functionality for the REST API interface.
