Advanced Configuration Properties

Hazelcast has advanced configuration properties. You can set them as property name and value pairs through declarative configuration, programmatic configuration, or JVM system property.

Declarative Configuration

<hazelcast xsi:schemaLocation=""

    <property name="">value</property>

Programmatic Configuration

Config config = new Config() ;
config.setProperty( "", "value" );

System Property

  1. Using JVM parameter: java

  2. Using System class: System.setProperty( "", "value" );

The table below lists the advanced configuration properties with their descriptions.
