|Getting Started with Pivotal GemFire / Pivotal GemFire Tutorial|
The GemFire tutorial uses a sample social networking application. To support this application, the tutorial includes two sample regions and two sample application classes.
To store the sample social networking data the application uses two regions; one holds people and the other holds posts.
|Description||The person's name||The profile of this person|
|Description||A unique ID for this post||The text of the post|
The Profile class holds a set of friends belonging to one person. A PostID is an author's name and a timestamp. The author's name should match a key (the person's name) in the people region, but that constraint is not enforced in this simple application.
A simple command line UI enables you to add people and posts to the system.
