Class Metadata


Name

Syntax name
Description Contains the full qualified name of the specified class. Because this attribute is of the XML type ID, there can only be one class-descriptor per class.

Example:

<gigaspaces-mapping>
	<class name="Model.Person">
	</class>
</gigaspaces-mapping>

Alias name

Syntax alias-name
Argument boolean
Description Gives the ability to map a C# class name (including namespace) to a space class name

Example:

<gigaspaces-mapping>
	<class name="Model.Person" alias-name="CommonPerson">
	</class>
</gigaspaces-mapping>

Persistence

Syntax persist
Argument boolean
Default false
Description This field indicates the persistency mode of the object. When a space is defined as persistent, a true value for this attribute will persist objects of this type.

Example:

<gigaspaces-mapping>
	<class name="Model.Person" persist="true">
	</class>
</gigaspaces-mapping>
