|Getting Started with Pivotal GemFire / Installing Pivotal GemFire|
For all other platform users, install and configure Pivotal GemFire on every physical and virtual machine where you will run Pivotal GemFire.
$ unzip Pivotal_GemFire_XXX_bNNNNN.zip -d path_to_productwhere XXX corresponds to the product version of GemFire that you are installing, bNNNNN corresponds to the build number of the software, and path_to_product corresponds to the location where you want to install GemFire. For example:
$ unzip Pivotal_GemFire_702_b45714.zip -d /opt/pivotal/Pivotal_GemFire_702Alternatively, unzip the .zip file directly with any common ZIP extraction tool suitable for your operating system.
If you will be using the gfsh command-line utility or managing servers and locators with the ServerLauncher and LocatorLauncher APIs, then you must set JAVA_HOME to a JDK installation. For example:
JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/jdk1.6.0_38 export JAVA_HOME
set JAVA_HOME=c:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_38
PATH=$PATH:$JAVA_HOME/bin:/opt/pivotal/Pivotal_GemFire_702/bin export PATH
GEMFIRE=/opt/pivotal/Pivotal_GemFire_800 export GEMFIRE
GF_JAVA=$JAVA_HOME/bin/java export GF_JAVA
# gfsh v7.0.2If you want more detailed version information such as the date of the build, build number and JDK version being used, type gfsh version --full.
Many open source licenses require that vendors who use or modify their libraries make that code available.
To obtain the open source code libraries modified in GemFire, visit the product download page, and select the Open Source tab. Download the Pivotal_GemFire_XXX_bNNNNN_OSS.zip file (where XXX corresponds to the product version of GemFire that you are installing and bNNNNN corresponds to the build number of the software.) Download and read the associated disclosure information (.txt) file from the same download page.
The .zip file contains both the original open source libraries and the modified source libraries.
