Exception got when accessing space running on different JVM


Our application uses an embedded space to run on top of IBM WebSpheare's JVM. We intend to monitor the memory usage of the space separately.

Hence, we are trying to pull out the space out of our app and run it on a separate JVM. But, we are getting a "com.j_spaces.core.UnknownTypeException" for a few classes.

Any idea what would be the cause for this?

Which IBM JVM you use with WebSpheare? Which XAP release you use? What's the GigaSpaces config? Which JVM the space is using? How your space class looks like? Shay

- IBM JVM used by the application: 1.6.0
 - XAP release: 7.1.1
 - Space will now run on: Sun JAVA SE : 1.6.0_25
 - We are using the default gigaspaces config. When as an embedded space, we use:
space = (new UrlSpaceConfigurer(java://localhost::8200/MyContainer/MySpace?create&properties=gs).versioned(true)).space();

- But now, we just execute the above statement to create the space on the Sun JVM and access it in our application using:
space = (IJSpace)SpaceFinder.find(jini://localhost::8200/MyContainer/MySpace?properties=gs);

Bottom line, we just intend to find out specifically the memory usage of the space, excluding the memory used by our app, excluding the memory used by the application server.. Would be great if there are any other means to achieve this as well...

Hello Shay,
I ran into this exception again, but in a different scenario: Three nodes are in a cluster, with no replication and load balancing policy specified as "local-space". The POJO I intend to write to the space using the proxy URL looks like this:

public class SimpleSpaceEntry implements Serializable{
    private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;
    private String objectCount;
    private int versionId;
    public SimpleSpaceEntry() {
    public SimpleSpaceEntry(String objectCount){
    public int getVersionId() {
        return versionId;
    public void setVersionId(int versionId) {
        this.versionId = versionId;
    @SpaceId(autoGenerate = false)
    public String getObjectCount() {
        return objectCount;
    public void setObjectCount(String objectCount) {
        this.objectCount = objectCount;

and while doing a write, it looks like this:

            try {
                SimpleSpaceEntry entry = new SimpleSpaceEntry();
                space.write(entry, null, DataGridLease.FOREVER);

If I don't set the "ObjectCount" explicitly and use autoGenerate=true, the write succeeds...

The policy looks like this:

                    <!-- <policy-type>local-space</policy-type> -->
                    <!-- <broadcast-condition>never</broadcast-condition> -->

You have very unusual configuration. If you are not using load-balancing and not using replication how the cluster provides you scalability and high-availability? Anyway , when using @SpaceId(autoGenerate = false) you must have this field set with a unique value before you write the object into the space. When using local-space policy with your very specific and non-standard configuration the client will communicate with the space member based on the URL used. Since you have not specified the URL I can't tell if this will be a random one or a specific one. Please call the gigaspace.snapshop for each space class type at the application initialization right after you get the proxy. This will introduce the class meta data into the specific space member your applications interacts with. It might solve your problem. Please contact me directly if you have problems: shay at gigaspaces.com Shay
