To use distributed and replicated regions, you should understand
how they work and your options for managing them.
The management of replicated and distributed regions
supplements the general information for managing data regions
provided in Basic Configuration and Programming
A distributed region automatically sends entry value updates to
remote caches and receives updates from them.
entry updates come from the Region
put and create
operations (the creation of an entry with a non-null
value is seen as an update by remote caches that already
have the entry key). Entry updates are distributed
selectively - only to caches where the entry key is
already defined. This provides a pull model of
distribution, compared to the push model that you get
alone does not cause new entries to be copied from
- A distributed
region shares cache loader and cache writer application
event handler plug-ins across the distributed system.
