Community edition - clients locked to same node as server?

I'm noticing that my quick and dirty server config (based on the simpleSpace application) doesn't seem to support use across the network, however it works fine if I run the client and server on the same machine.

Is the community edition locked to a single node at both the client and the server?

The community edition can have as many clients you want - local or remote.
With the community edition the space cannot not be clustered - so you would not be able to scale in terms of the amount of clients and have in-memory high-availability.

Yes. The community edition is locked to a single node. If you need to run across the network - please download the enterprise edition.

Please note the following text associated with downloading the Community Edition:

{quote} Download the free Community Edition, which includes a full and mature implementation of the JavaSpaces/Jini platform as well as a complete JMS messaging solution and a JDBC query engine built on top of JavaSpaces. The CE is limited for use on a single node and does not offer clustering capabilities as well as other advanced capabilities found in the Enterprise Edition. {quote}

Thank you.

Now, with the Community edition I can "share memory" with differrent applications connecting to an single instance?


App 1 = Emergency Room services (Swing) App 2 = Disease Management services (Web) App 3 = Physician services (PDA)

Each of these applications have multilple users perfoming different use cases.

So, with the Community edition I can share (single node) objects in a stateful workflow accross these applications? However, other instances of spaces (local or remote) cannot participate in a cluster?
