Spring Integration

All XAP components can be wired and configured with the application using corresponding Spring Beans.

The XAP Spring Integration supports:

Spring Automatic Transaction Demarcation
Spring Data
Spring JMS
Spring JPA
Spring Hibernate
Spring Remoting
String Batch
Spring Security


Lets look at a Spring configuration file that represents the creation of an embedded space:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<beans xmlns=""
    xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:context=""
    xmlns:os-core="" xmlns:os-events=""

    <!-- Scan the packages for annotations -->
    <context:component-scan base-package="xap.tutorial"/>

    <!-- Enables to configure Spring beans through annotations -->

    <!-- A bean representing a space (an IJSpace implementation) -->
    <os-core:embedded-space id="space" name="tutorialSpace"/>

    <!-- Define the GigaSpace instance that the application will use to access the space -->
    <os-core:giga-space id="xapTutorialSpace" space="space"/>

And here is the code to access the Spring Bean within your application:

public void findSpace()  {
    FileSystemXmlApplicationContext context = new FileSystemXmlApplicationContext(

    GigaSpace space = (GigaSpace) context.getBean("xapTutorialSpace");

XAP Spring Data

XAP Spring Data implements the Spring Data Framework that lets you use the concepts to the development of applications using XAP’s In-Memory Data Grid (IMDG) as the data store
