The getting started samples are provided for a quick introduction to eXtreme Scale functionality and basic operation in an IIS environment, specifically running in Visual Studio.
The samples consist of an ASP based client application, including source, is provided to run simple create, read, update, and delete (CRUD) functions to this basic grid. The client application can also be used to run simple create, read, update and delete functions to a simple grid hosted on a WebSphere DataPower XC10 appliance.
Running the sample
Before importing and running the sample application, you must perform a full installation of WebSphere eXtreme Scale to start a grid. You then will require to install the WebSphere eXtreme Scale Client for .NET.
Importing the sample into Visual Studio
You should now see the solution in your Solution Explorer. If there are build errors, then you must resolve them by adding the eXtreme Scale DLL files as References, as described in the following steps:
The correct references are now in the solution, you should be able to compile and build your solution.
Open Visual Studio
From the File menu, select Open, Project/Solution...
Browse to the directory of the downloaded sample, select IBM.WebSphere.caching.GettingStartedWeb.sln file, and click Okay.
Expand the GettingStartedWeb solution, and then expand .
If IBM.WebSphere.Caching.dll is not resolved, you can remove it and add it where it is located on your machine.
Right click References, Add Reference....
Select the Browse tab. Look in the eXtreme Scale Client for .NET install/bin directory for IBM.WebSphere.Caching.dll and click Okay. You cannot have two of the same named references, so if you did not delete the one that came with the solution to add your new reference, please remove it first.
Running the client application
The client application is a simple ObjectGrid client that connects to a remote or embedded ObjectGrid and performs Create, Read, Update and Delete (CRUD) operations. This client can be used with a WebSphere eXtreme Scale grid or a simple grid on a WebSphere DataPower XC10 appliance.
After you have imported your solution file into Visual Studio, you can then build it and run the application on the IIS Server that comes with Visual Studio.
