Discussion

Previously, GemFire required various license keys depending on the topology selected, which needed to be configured by setting the corresponding property in the gemfire.properties file, eg:

  1. Simple peer to peer

    license-application-cache=#####-#####-#####-#####-#####
    license-data-management=
    
  2. Server peer-to-server peer

    license-application-cache=
    license-data-management=#####-#####-#####-#####-#####
    
  3. Peer to Peer with global wan

    license-application-cache=
    license-data-management=#####-#####-#####-#####-#####,
    #####-#####-#####-#####-#####
    
  4. Client server with limited number of clients.

    license-application-cache=#####-#####-#####-#####-#####
    license-data-management=#####-#####-#####-#####-#####
    
  5. Client server with unlimited number of clients.

    license-application-cache=
    license-data-management=#####-#####-#####-#####-#####, 
    #####-#####-#####-#####-#####
    
  6. Client server with Global Wan and limited number of clients

    license-application-cache=#####-#####-#####-#####-#####
    license-data-management=#####-#####-#####-#####-#####, 
    #####-#####-#####-#####-#####
  7. Client server with Global Wan and unlimited number of clients

    license-application-cache=
    license-data-management=#####-#####-#####-#####-#####, 
    #####-#####-#####-#####-#####

These configuration are no longer required for configuring licenses. As of GemFire 7.0.2, licenses are there are no checks based on license keys. The licensing contract enforcement is provided in the contract itself and is essentially a paper trail instead of key based check. There are some known issues with early 7.0.2.x versions where you may receive default license warnings. These are fixed in GemFire 7.0.2.15 and newer. For any queries regarding licenses and upgrading, please contact your sales representative or account manager. If you have any difficulties contacting them, please raise a ticket at http://login.salesforce.com or the Pivotal support site.
