hello world tutorial - This license is limited to 1 space only


I am new to the GigaSpaces platform. I wanted to go through the hello world tutorial but when I deploy the hello-processor to the service grid (using one GSM, and two GSC)

with the SLA:

<os-sla:sla cluster-schema="partitioned-sync2backup" number-of-instances="1" number-of-backups="1"/>

then I received an exception:

Caused by: com.j_spaces.core.CreateException: This license is limited to 1 space only

Is this a limitation of the community edition of the Gigaspaces XAP version? So I can't try out the fail-over and scalling features from the wiki site with the community edition? What edition should I use?

Thanks in advance for reply.

Greetings, Zoli

You should use the premium edition.
This supports clustering that includes fail-over and scaling features.

You can also test these by running the data-grid example on the cloud:

Thank you.

How long can I use the evaluation version of the premium edition?

See your GigaSpaces root/gs_license.xml. It includes as part of the key the expiration date.

If you need to extend the eval period just send your request to sales@gigaspaces.com .

Do we need licenses for machines that runs only PU's in GSC using remote space/local view? How about machines that runs only GSM?

Currently machines running the space engine require the license file.
GSM does not need the license file.
Local cache does not need the license file.

Do GSC require license file?
