|Developing with Pivotal GemFire / Distributed and Replicated Regions|
Plan the configuration and ongoing management of your distributed, replicated, and preloaded regions, and configure the regions.
<region-attributes refid="REPLICATE"> </region-attributes>
<region-attributes refid="REPLICATE" scope="distributed-no-ack"> </region-attributes>
<region-attributes refid="REPLICATE" scope="distributed-ack" concurrency-checks-enable="true"> </region-attributes>
Of all the operations that affect the local cache only, only local region destroy is allowed in a replicated region. Other operations are not configurable or throw exceptions. For example, you cannot use local destroy as the expiration action on a replicated region. This is because local operations like entry invalidation and destruction remove data from the local cache only. A replicated region would no longer be complete if data were removed locally but left intact.
