This section summarizes all available VMware Tanzu GemFire REST API resources and endpoints.
Note: This documentation covers the v1 release of Tanzu GemFire REST APIs for developing applications.
A Tanzu GemFire region is how Tanzu GemFire logically groups data within its cache. Regions stores data as entries, which are key-value pairs. Using the REST APIs you can read, add (or update), and delete region data.
Tanzu GemFire uses a query syntax based on OQL (Object Query Language) to query region data. Since Tanzu GemFire regions are key-value stores, values can range from simple byte arrays to complex nested objects.
Tanzu GemFire functions allows you to write and execute server-side transactions and data operations. These may include anything ranging from initializing components or third-party services or aggregating data.
Administrative endpoints provide management and monitoring functionality for the REST API interface.
