Chapter 1. Getting Started with Infinispan Query

1.1. Introduction

The Red Hat JBoss Data Grid Library mode Querying API enables you to search for entries in the grid using values instead of keys. It provides features such as:
  • Keyword, Range, Fuzzy, Wildcard, and Phrase queries
  • Combining queries
  • Sorting, filtering, and pagination of query results
This API, which is based on Apache Lucene and Hibernate Search, is supported in JBoss Data Grid. Additionally, JBoss Data Grid provides an alternate mechanism that allows direct indexless searching. See Chapter 6, The Infinispan Query DSL for details.
Remote Querying from a Hot Rod Java client, is Technology Preview for JBoss Data Grid  and is not supported. See Chapter 7, Remote Querying for details.
