Configuring the Client

You can configure clients through files and API calls.

  • Client Configuration

    You configure the client in two files: for system-level configuration and cache.xml for cache-level configuration.

  • Cache Server Configuration

    The servers are configured through command-line input and configuration files.

  • Attribute Definition Priority

    You can specify attributes in different ways, which can cause conflicting definitions. Applications can be configured programmatically, and that has priority over other settings.

  • Search Path for Multiple Properties Files

    The client processes first look for their properties file in the product-dir/defaultSystem directory, then in the working directory.

  • Overriding Properties File Settings

    Application developers have the option of configuring system attributes programmatically, rather than using the file.

  • Defining Properties Programmatically

    You can pass in specific properties programmatically by using a Properties object to define the non-default properties.
