Hazelcast: Starting standalone Hazelcast nodes
Now now, Hazelcast explains how we can start a node programmatically. It might take some time till you start doing a full code implementation of a Hazelcast client. Meanwhile, if you want to start a standalone Hazelcast node to support your cluster, this is what you do.
1. Start your programmetic cluster first, as in the tutorial.
2. Get to the hazelcast/lib directory.
3. All you have to do is, have your standard hazelcast.xml in the classpath, then run
java -cp hazelcast-2.0.3.jar com.hazelcast.examples.StartServer
If you just run java -jar hazelcast-2.0.3.jar it would run the main class specified in the manifest, a load test.
And because of https://github.com/hazelcast/hazelcast/blob/master/hazelcast/src/main/java/com/hazelcast/examples/StartServer.java you are safe to go, as you know what exactly is happening with StartServer.
