very basic question - writing and reading an object to/from a space

I feel a bit embarrassed to ask this questions, but i have spent a good number of hours trying to get it...

I am try to put a simple test class into a space and retreiving it...

Code is the following: public class Test { private Integer id; private String hello;

@SpaceId(autoGenerate = false)
public Integer getId() {return id;  }

public void setId(Integer id) { this.id = id;}

public void go() {hello = "hello";}

public static void main(String[] args)
    IJSpace space = new UrlSpaceConfigurer("/./IndexSpace").space();
    GigaSpace gigaSpace = new GigaSpaceConfigurer(space).gigaSpace();
    Test t = new Test();

    Test t2 = gigaSpace.readById(Test.class, new Integer(10));

private void speak() {System.out.println(hello); }


speak() should say "hello" but is actually saying null, meaning the value of the hello field cannot be retrieved as it was put in the space...


Thanks for enlightening my ignorance.

Seb, I believe you are missing getter and setter methods for the hello field. Shay

Thanks Shay,

That made it. Interestingly, on the Gigaspaeces Management Center, in the space browser, Service View, when i click on the object corresponding to the class name, it does not list any property in the "Data Types Info" tab.

If i try to query the object, i get: StackTrace: com.j_spaces.core.DetailedUnusableEntryException: The operation's type description is incompatible with the type description stored in the space. Type=[com.msci.eqb.constituents.datamodel.Test], Server checksum=[-1035843038], Operation checksum=[1294491423]. Server type description: Super classes: 2 1: Type=[com.msci.eqb.constituents.datamodel.Test] 2: Type=[java.lang.Object] Properties: 2 1: Name=[hello], Type=[java.lang.String] 2: Name=[id], Type=[java.lang.Integer] Checksum: -1035843038.

Operation type description: Super classes: 2 1: Type=[com.msci.eqb.constituents.datamodel.Test] 2: Type=[java.lang.Object] Properties: 1 1: Name=[id], Type=[java.lang.Integer] Checksum: 1294491423.

Thanks again.
