Tutorial Introduction

The tutorial application demonstrates basic features of vFabric GemFire by walking through the code of a rudimentary social networking application built on GemFire.

The tutorial shows you how to kill JVMs without loss of service, add more storage dynamically while the application is running, and provide low latency access to your data.

Note: The tutorial demonstrates how to use these features with GemFire's Java API. If you plan to use C++ or C#, you may prefer to get started with the native client documentation. See https://www.vmware.com/support/pubs/vfabric-gemfire.html for a link to the most recent native client documentation.
