Apache Ignite - Setup guide

In this post, we will discuss about setting up Apache Ignite.

Installation

You can download the Apache Ignite from its official site. You can download the binary, sources, Docker or Cloud images and maven. There is also a third party support from GridGain.

Steps for binary installation

This is pretty straightforward installation. Download the binary from website. You can optionally setup installation path as IGNITE_HOME. To run Ignite as server, you need to run below command on terminal.

/bin/ignite.bat // If it is Windows
/bin/ignite.sh //if it is Linux

The above command will run the Ignite with default configuration file under $IGNITE_HOME/config/default-config.xml, you can pass your own configuration file with following command

/bin/ignite.sh config/ignite-config.xml

Steps for building from sources

If you are likely to build everything from sources, than follow the steps listed below.

# Unpack the source package
$ unzip -q apache-ignite-{version}-src.zip
$ cd apache-ignite-{version}-src
 
# Build In-Memory Data Fabric release (without LGPL dependencies)
$ mvn clean package -DskipTests
 
# Build In-Memory Data Fabric release (with LGPL dependencies)
$ mvn clean package -DskipTests -Prelease,lgpl
 
# Build In-Memory Hadoop Accelerator release
# (optionally specify version of hadoop to use)
$ mvn clean package -DskipTests -Dignite.edition=hadoop [-Dhadoop.version=X.X.X]

Steps for maven

You just need to add the maven dependencies to make it work in your project. Ignite has many integration support with other libraries and almost all of them are optional. The only mandatory one is ignite-core. You can add ignite-spring for configuring Ignite with Spring XML like configurations and ignite-indexing for SQL querying.

<dependency>
    <groupId>org.apache.ignite</groupId>
    <artifactId>ignite-core</artifactId>
    <version>${ignite.version}</version>
</dependency>
<dependency>
    <groupId>org.apache.ignite</groupId>
    <artifactId>ignite-spring</artifactId>
    <version>${ignite.version}</version>
</dependency>
<dependency>
    <groupId>org.apache.ignite</groupId>
    <artifactId>ignite-indexing</artifactId>
    <version>${ignite.version}</version>
</dependency>

You can download the docker image or Cloud AMI from this link.
