I have a PU that loads data and multiple processes that fetches the data from PU on start-up.

Now the PU is refreshed with some time interval, say 1 day. Is there a way to notify all the processes about the refresh?

Have all the processes register for notification for a write for a "RefreshCommand" and write such an object into the space once the refresh has been completed.

Can you please point us to an example of this.

There are two options:

Notify Container (high level API): http://www.gigaspaces.com/wiki/displa...

And the Session Based Messaging API (low level API): http://www.gigaspaces.com/wiki/displa...

You will find code examples within each of the above links. Shay

Hi Shay,

That works like a charm. Thanks

Can you clarify what the valid values for lease are? Didnt find any documentation/javado on this.

EventRegistration registration = session.addListener(new MyData(),this,Lease.FOREVER,null,null,NotifyActionType.NOTIFY_ALL);

Our usecase requires notifying a client of the space of a change in data. Is there any advantage of using either of the 2 notification mechanism in this case?

Thanks all. The last example mentioned at http://www.gigaspaces.com/wiki/display/XAP71/NotifyContainer (public void myEventHandler example) works brilliantly for our requirement.

However, just to clarify, is it normal practice to register for events on a remote container i.e., where the listener is a client not co-located with the space. Do you see any pitfalls, with the approach, that we should watch out for?
