Starting a Pivotal GemFireXD Distributed System from IntelliJ IDEA

The example below shows how you can start a Pivotal GemFireXD distributed system from IntelliJ IDEA. Here we will start a Locator which has Pulse enabled as well as one member. We use the following class method to achieve this from an IDE such as IntelliJ

FabricServiceManager.getFabricLocatorInstance()
FabricServiceManager.getFabricServerInstance()

1. Add the following to your maven POM file to ensure the correct libraries are present.

  
        <dependency>
            <groupId>com.pivotal.gemfirexd</groupId>
            <artifactId>gemfirexd</artifactId>
            <version>1.3.0</version>
        </dependency>
        <dependency>
            <groupId>com.pivotal.gemfirexd</groupId>
            <artifactId>gemfirexd-client</artifactId>
            <version>1.3.0</version>
        </dependency>
        <dependency>
            <groupId>org.apache.tomcat.embed</groupId>
            <artifactId>tomcat-embed-core</artifactId>
            <version>8.0.14</version>
        </dependency>
        <dependency>
            <groupId>org.apache.tomcat.embed</groupId>
            <artifactId>tomcat-embed-logging-juli</artifactId>
            <version>8.0.14</version>
        </dependency> 

2. Create a start locator class as follows
  
package pivotal.au.gemfirexd.demos.startup;

import com.pivotal.gemfirexd.FabricLocator;
import com.pivotal.gemfirexd.FabricServiceManager;

import java.sql.SQLException;
import java.util.Properties;

/**
 * Created by papicella on 4/11/2014.
 */
public class StartLocator1
{
    public static void main(String[] args) throws SQLException, InterruptedException {
        // TODO Auto-generated method stub

        Properties serverProps = new Properties();
        serverProps.setProperty("sys-disk-dir","./gfxd/locator1");
        serverProps.setProperty("server-bind-address","localhost");
        serverProps.setProperty("jmx-manager-start","true");
        serverProps.setProperty("jmx-manager-http-port","7075");
        serverProps.setProperty("jmx-manager-bind-address","localhost");

        FabricLocator locator = FabricServiceManager.getFabricLocatorInstance();
        locator.start("localhost", 41111, serverProps);

        locator.startNetworkServer("127.0.0.1", 1527, null);

        System.out.println("Locator started ... ");
        Object lock = new Object();
        synchronized (lock) {
            while (true) {
                lock.wait();
            }
        }

    }
} 

3. Edit the run configuration to ensure you specify the GEMFIREXD ENV variable as shown below.

Note: This is needed to ensure Pulse can start when the locator starts


4. Create a start server class as follows.
  
package pivotal.au.gemfirexd.demos.startup;

import com.pivotal.gemfirexd.FabricServer;
import com.pivotal.gemfirexd.FabricServiceManager;

import java.sql.SQLException;
import java.util.Properties;

public class StartServer1
{
    public static void main(String[] args) throws SQLException, InterruptedException {
        // TODO Auto-generated method stub
        FabricServer server = FabricServiceManager.getFabricServerInstance();

        Properties serverProps = new Properties();
        serverProps.setProperty("server-groups", "mygroup");
        serverProps.setProperty("persist-dd", "false");
        serverProps.setProperty("sys-disk-dir","./gfxd/server1");
        serverProps.setProperty("host-data","true");
        serverProps.setProperty("locators", "localhost[41111]");

        server.start(serverProps);

        server.startNetworkServer("127.0.0.1", 1528, null);

        Object lock = new Object();
        synchronized (lock) {
            while (true) {
                lock.wait();
            }
        }

    }
}

5. Start the locator by running "StartLocator1" class.


6. Start one server by running "StartServer1" class.


7. Connect to pulse to verify you have a 2 node distributed system with one locator and one member.

Using URL: http://localhost:7075/pulse/Login.html

Starting a Pivotal GemFireXD server from Java

The FabricServer interface provides an easy way to start an embedded GemFire XD server process in an existing Java application.

In short code as follows will get you started. Use this in DEV/TEST scenarios not for production use.

  
package pivotal.au.gemfirexd.demos.startup;

import com.pivotal.gemfirexd.FabricServer;
import com.pivotal.gemfirexd.FabricServiceManager;

import java.sql.SQLException;
import java.util.Properties;

public class StartServer1
{
    public static void main(String[] args) throws SQLException, InterruptedException {
        // TODO Auto-generated method stub
        FabricServer server = FabricServiceManager.getFabricServerInstance();

        Properties serverProps = new Properties();
        serverProps.setProperty("server-groups", "mygroup");
        serverProps.setProperty("persist-dd", "false");
        serverProps.setProperty("sys-disk-dir","./gfxd/server1");
        serverProps.setProperty("host-data","true");

        server.start(serverProps);

        server.startNetworkServer("127.0.0.1", 1527, null);

        Object lock = new Object();
        synchronized (lock) {
            while (true) {
                lock.wait();
            }
        }

    }
}

Creating a WebLogic 12c Data Source Connection to Pivotal GemFireXD 1.3

I am going to show how you would create a WebLogic data source to Pivotal GemFireXD 1.3. In this example I am using the developer edition of Weblogic which known as "Free Oracle WebLogic Server 12c (12.1.3) Zip Distribution and Installers for Developers" You can download / configure it as follows.

http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/downloads/index-087510.html

Note: I am assuming you have WebLogic 12C running with GemFireXD also running. I am also assuming a WLS install directory as follows with a domain called "mydomain"

/Users/papicella/vmware/software/weblogic/wls12130

1. Ensure you have the GemFireXD client driver copied into your WLS domain lib directory as follows, prior to starting WLS

/Users/papicella/vmware/software/weblogic/wls12130/user_projects/domains/mydomain/lib/gemfirexd-client.jar

2. Navigate to the WebLogic Console as follows

http://localhost:7001/console/

3. Login using your server credentials


4. From the Domain Structure tree navigate to "Services -> Data Sources"

5. Click on "New -> Generic Data Source"

6. Fill in the form as follows

Name: GemFireXD-DataSource
JNDI Name: jdbc/gemfirexd-ds
Type: Select "Other" from the drop down list box

7. Click "Next"
8. Click "Next"
9. Uncheck "Supports Global Transactions" and click next
10. Enter the following details for credentials. The GemFireXD cluster is not setup for auhentication so this is just a fake username/password to allow us to proceed.

Username: app
Password: app

11. Click "Next"
12. Enter the following CONFIG parameters for your GemFireXD Cluster

Driver Class Name: com.pivotal.gemfirexd.jdbc.ClientDriver
URL: jdbc:gemfirexd://localhost:1527/
Test Table Name: sysibm.sysdummy1

Leave the rest as their default values , it's vital you don't alter the default values here.

13. Click the "Test Configuration" button at this point to verify you can connect, if Successful you will see a message as follows


14. Click "Next"
15. Check the server you wish to target this Data Source for. If you don't do this the Data Source will not be deployed and accessible. In DEV only WLS you only have "myserver" to select.


16. Click "Finish"


It should show your all done and no re-starts are required. To access the Data Source you need to use JNDI with the path "jdbc/gemfirexd-ds"

Connecting to Pivotal Cloud Foundry Ops Metrics using Java VisualVM

The Pivotal Ops Metrics tool is a JMX extension for Elastic Runtime. Pivotal Ops Metrics collects and exposes system data from Cloud Foundry components via a JMX endpoint. Use this system data to monitor your installation and assist in troubleshooting. Below is the tile once installed and available with Pivotal Cloud Foundry Ops Manager


Once installed and configured, metrics for Cloud Foundry components automatically report to the JMX endpoint. Your JMX client uses the credentials supplied to connect to the IP address of the Pivotal Ops Metrics JMX Provider at port 44444

1. Start jvisualvm

2. Under plugin ensure you have the VisualVm-Mbeans plugin installed as shown below, or install it to be able to view the MBeans.



3. Create a JMX connection as shown below


4. Finally the CF MBeans can be viewed as shown below.

Spring XD Pivotal Gemfire Sink Demo

Spring XD is a unified, distributed, and extensible system for data ingestion, real time analytics, batch processing, and data export. The project's goal is to simplify the development of big data applications.

There are 2 implementation of the gemfire sink: gemfire-server and gemfire-json-server. They are identical except the latter converts JSON string payloads to a JSON document format proprietary to GemFire and provides JSON field access and query capabilities. If you are not using JSON, the gemfire-server module will write the payload using java serialization to the configured region.

In this example below we show how we connect to an existing GemFire 7.0.2 cluster using a locator to add some JSON trade symbols to an existing region in the cluster.

1. Start a GemFire cluster with with an existing region as shown below. The following cache.xml is for "server1" of the cluster and "server2" of the cluster. They are identical configs , just using different ports

server1 cache.xml

  
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE cache PUBLIC
    "-//GemStone Systems, Inc.//GemFire Declarative Caching 7.0//EN"
    "http://www.gemstone.com/dtd/cache7_0.dtd">

<cache>
    <cache-server bind-address="localhost" port="40404" hostname-for-clients="localhost"/>

    <region name="springxd-region">
        <region-attributes data-policy="partition">
           <partition-attributes redundant-copies="1" total-num-buckets="113"/>
           <eviction-attributes>
                <lru-heap-percentage action="overflow-to-disk"/>
           </eviction-attributes>
        </region-attributes>
    </region>

    <resource-manager critical-heap-percentage="75" eviction-heap-percentage="65"/>

</cache>

server2 cache.xml
  
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE cache PUBLIC
    "-//GemStone Systems, Inc.//GemFire Declarative Caching 7.0//EN"
    "http://www.gemstone.com/dtd/cache7_0.dtd">

                <lru-heap-percentage action="overflow-to-disk"/>
           </eviction-attributes>
        </region-attributes>
    </region>

    <resource-manager critical-heap-percentage="75" eviction-heap-percentage="65"/>

</cache> 

2. Verify using GFSH you have 2 members , a locator and a region as follows
  
$ gfsh

xd:>stream create --name gemfiredemo --definition "http --port=9090 | gemfire-json-server --host=localhost --port=10334 --useLocator=true --regionName=springxd-region --keyExpression=payload.getField('symbol')" --deploy
Created and deployed new stream 'gemfiredemo'

6. Post some entries via HTTP which will be inserted into the GemFire Region
  
xd:>http post --target http://localhost:9090 --data {"symbol":"ORCL","price":38}
> POST (text/plain;Charset=UTF-8) http://localhost:9090 {"symbol":"ORCL","price":38}
> 200 OK

xd:>http post --target http://localhost:9090 --data {"symbol":"VMW","price":94}
> POST (text/plain;Charset=UTF-8) http://localhost:9090 {"symbol":"VMW","price":94}
> 200 OK  

7. Verify via GFSH that data has been inserted into the GemFire region. JSON data stored in GemFire regions is done using PDX.
  
gfsh>query --query="select * from /springxd-region";

Result     : true
startCount : 0
endCount   : 20
Rows       : 2

symbol | price
------ | -----
ORCL   | 38
VMW    | 94

NEXT_STEP_NAME : END

Pivotal GemFire 8 - Starting a Locator / Server directly from IntelliJ 13.x

With the introduction of Pivotal GemFire 8 developers can easily incorporate starting/stopping GemFire Locators/Servers directly within Java code allowing them to easily integrate GemFire  management within their IDE. This ensures developers can develop/test/run GemFire applications all within their IDE of choice making them much more productive using very simple Launcher API's

The locator is a Pivotal GemFire process that tells new, connecting members where running members are located and provides load balancing for server use. A GemFire server is a Pivotal GemFire process that runs as a long-lived, configurable member of a distributed system. The GemFire server is used primarily for hosting long-lived data regions and for running standard GemFire processes such as the server in a client/server configuration.

In this post I am going to show how we can use the following classes to launch a Pivotal GemFire  locator / server from code directly within IntelliJ IDEA allowing you to develop/test GemFire applications directly from your IDE of choice.

Note: In this post we use Intellij IDEA 13.x

com.gemstone.gemfire.distributed.LocatorLauncher API
com.gemstone.gemfire.distributed.ServerLauncher API

1. Add the GemFire 8 maven REPO to your project to ensure we pull the required JAR files.

  
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"
         xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
         xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/xsd/maven-4.0.0.xsd">
    <modelVersion>4.0.0</modelVersion>

    <groupId>gemfire-compression</groupId>
    <artifactId>gemfire-compression</artifactId>
    <version>1.0-SNAPSHOT</version>

    <properties>
        <gemfire.version>8.0.0</gemfire.version>
    </properties>

    <dependencies>
        <dependency>
            <groupId>com.gemstone.gemfire</groupId>
            <artifactId>gemfire</artifactId>
            <version>${gemfire.version}</version>
            <scope>compile</scope>
        </dependency>
    </dependencies>

    <repositories>
        <repository>
            <id>gemstone-release</id>
            <name>GemStone Maven RELEASE Repository</name>
            <url>http://dist.gemstone.com.s3.amazonaws.com/maven/release</url>
        </repository>
    </repositories>
</project>

2. Create a class as follows to start a locator
  
package pivotal.gemfire.compression;

import com.gemstone.gemfire.distributed.LocatorLauncher;

import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;

public class StartLocator
{
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        LocatorLauncher locatorLauncher  = new LocatorLauncher.Builder()
                .set("jmx-manager", "true")
                .set("jmx-manager-start", "true")
                .set("jmx-manager-http-port", "8083")
                .set("jmx-manager-ssl", "false")
                .setMemberName("locator")
                .setPort(10334)
                .setBindAddress("localhost")
                .build();

        System.out.println("Attempting to start Locator");

        locatorLauncher.start();

        locatorLauncher.waitOnStatusResponse(30, 5, TimeUnit.SECONDS);

        System.out.println("Locator successfully started");
    }

} 

3. Create a class as follow to start a single cache server, could create as many iof these as you need
  
package pivotal.gemfire.compression;

import com.gemstone.gemfire.distributed.ServerLauncher;

public class StartMember
{
    public static void main(String[] args){
        ServerLauncher serverLauncher  = new ServerLauncher.Builder()
                .setMemberName("server1")
                .set("locators","localhost[10334]")
                .set("cache-xml-file", "cache.xml")
                .set("log-level", "info")
                .build();

        System.out.println("Attempting to start cache server");

        serverLauncher.start();

        System.out.println("Cache server successfully started");
    }
} 

4. Create a cache.xml with a dummy region
  
<!DOCTYPE cache PUBLIC
        "-//GemStone Systems, Inc.//GemFire Declarative Caching 8.0//EN"
        "http://www.gemstone.com/dtd/cache8_0.dtd">
<cache>
    <cache-server bind-address="localhost" port="0" hostname-for-clients="localhost"/>

    <region name="CompressedRegion">
        <region-attributes data-policy="partition">
            <key-constraint>java.lang.String</key-constraint>
            <value-constraint>java.lang.String</value-constraint>
            <partition-attributes redundant-copies="1" total-num-buckets="113"/>
            <eviction-attributes>
                <lru-heap-percentage action="overflow-to-disk"/>
            </eviction-attributes>
        </region-attributes>
    </region>


    <resource-manager critical-heap-percentage="75" eviction-heap-percentage="65"/>

</cache>

5. Edit the run configurations for StartLocator.java to include GEMFIRE env variable as shown below.


6. Run StartLocator.java as shown below.


7. Run StartMember.java as shown below.


8. Finally from the IDE run a script called verify.sh to view the cluster member/regions to ensure it worked.

verify.sh
  
#!/bin/bash

. ./setup.sh

gfsh <<EOF
connect --locator=localhost[10334];
list members;
list regions;
exit;
EOF  

Output

Creating a Pivotal GemFireXD Data Source Connection from IntelliJ IDEA 13.x

In order to create a Pivotal GemFireXD Data Source Connection from IntelliJ 13.x , follow the steps below. You will need to define a GemFireXD driver , prior to creating the Data Source itself.

1. Bring up the Databases panel.

2. Define a GemFireXD Driver as follows


3. Once defined select it by using the following options. Your using the Driver you created at #2 above

+ -> Data Source -> com.pivotal.gemfirexd.jdbc.ClientDriver 

4. Create a Connection as shown below. You would need to having a running GemFireXD cluster at this point in order to connect.



5.  Once connected you can browse objects as shown below.



6. Finally we can run DML/DDL directly from IntelliJ as shown below.
