|Pivotal GemFire Native Client User's Guide / Configuring the Native Client Cache|
To ease the task of managing the structure of the cache, you can define the default Pivotal GemFire cache structure in an XML-based initialization file.
To modify the cache structure, you just edit cache.xml in your preferred text editor. No changes to the application code are required.
This chapter describes the file format of the cache.xml file and discusses its contents.
