Step 3 - Building and Running the Application

Before You Begin

We recommend that you do the following before starting this step of the Tutorial:

  • Follow Step 1 of this tutorial
  • Follow Step 2 of this tutorial

Building the Example Application

The application sources and build scripts can be downloaded here. This application uses a Maven build script, so you need to make sure you’re connected to the internet when you first run it to allow Maven to download all the dependencies.

To build the example you should follow the following steps:

~/gs/xap/ gigaspaces-xap-premium-9.7.0-ga/tools/maven>
"Installing XAP 14.2.0-RELEASE jars"
  • cd to the root directory of the application
  • Edit the value of the gsVersion property in the pom.xml file at the root directory to reflect the GigaSpaces build you’re using (this is the build number that the Maven plugin installation script outputs to the console when invoked). xap-version For example, if you are using XAP 9.7.0 you should modify the pom.xml to have:
<gsVersion> 9.7.0-10496-RELEASE</gsVersion>

When using XAP versions prior to 10.0, you should also modify the ‘pom.xml’ and include the following exclusion:

  • Run the following Maven command:
mvn package

This will download the application’s decencies, compile the sources and package the processor processing unit and the web application.

Deploying the Example Application

To deploy the application, you should do the following:

  • Start a GigaSpaces Agent
  • Run the following Maven command from the application’s root directory:
mvn os:deploy

Creating Sample Data

To have an initial sample data set to work with, simply click the “Create Dummy Data” link in the welcome page of the application. This will create a number of Owner s, Pet s and Vet s that you can work with to experience the application’s functionality.


Monitoring the Deployed Application

To monitor the application, start the GigaSpaces UI using the <GigaSpaces root>/bin/ or the GigaSpaces Web UI.
