Interoperability between Embedded and Server Endpoints is here!
Originally authored by Galder Zamarreño
As mentioned by Mircea in the Infinispan 5.3.0.Beta2 release blog post, interoperability between embedded Infinispan and remote Infinispan modes, including Hot Rod, Memcached and REST is now here!
What this means is that you should be able to store data via one of the endpoints and retrieve data from a different one. So, I can store an Java object using the Java Hot Rod client, and I can retrieve it using the embedded interface.
Documentation for this new interoperability, or compatibility mode, can be found here, including the key aspects of this new functionality, configuration and links to some examples.
As we head towards the later part of the Infinispan 5.3 series, if you're interested in accessing data in multiple ways, give it a go and let us know what you think!
