Welcome to the Hazelcast Jet Reference Manual. This manual includes concepts, instructions, and samples to guide you on how to use Hazelcast Jet to build applications.

Hazelcast Jet is a distributed computing platform for fast processing of big data sets. With Hazelcast In-Memory Data Grid (IMDG) providing storage functionality, Hazelcast Jet performs parallel execution enabling data-intensive applications to operate in real-time. Using directed acyclic graphs (DAG) to model relationships between individual steps in the data processing pipeline, Hazelcast Jet is simple to deploy and can execute both stream and batch-based data processing applications simultaneously because it is continuously operating. Hazelcast Jet is an Apache 2 licensed open source project. Please also refer to Hazelcast Jet website for information on its features, use cases and performance considerations.

As the reader of this manual, you must be familiar with the Java programming language and you should have installed your preferred Integrated Development Environment (IDE).
