We’ve recently created a Product Overview book for GigaSpaces XAP.
The book, in a wiki format (soon to be delivered in pdf as well), is directed for architects and developers who would like to understand the rationale behind GigaSpaces XAP and the technical aspects of the product.
The intention was to create a high level, technical document that is read as a starting point to understand the product. After spending 20-30 minutes of reading, the reader should be able to understand the ‘ideas’ behind the product and the actual layering and roles of components and sub-systems within the product.
We used 5 rather lengthy pages in order to make it easy for the reader to go over the material with almost no distractions. We also kept external linking to minimum for the same reasons.
I encourage you to have a look at it. As always I’m interested in what you have to say about it. Here’s the link to it: GigaSpaces XAP Product Overview
