This example demonstrates enabling Compression in a VMware GemFire replicated region.
This is a simple example that demonstrates enabling Compression in a
replicated region. The Default compression algorithm included with GemFire is Snappy. Additionally, you can specify your own compressor algorithm as well by implementing org.apache.geode.compression.Compression Interface. For enabling compression on a GemFire region you can follow the official document.
This example assumes you have installed JDK11 and GemFire.
From the gemfire-examples/compression directory, build the example and
run unit tests
$ ../gradlew build
Next start the locator, two servers and create replicated region example-region with compression enabled.
$ gfsh run --file=scripts/start.gfsh
Run the example to create and get entries using GemFire Java Client from the region
$ ../gradlew run
Shut down the system:
$ gfsh run --file=scripts/stop.gfsh
