Basic Region Access

In the context of a query, specify the name of a region by its full path, starting with a forward slash (/ ).

Object Attributes

You can access the Region object’s public fields and methods from a region path, referred to as the region’s attributes. Using this method, /portfolios.name returns “portfolios” and /portfolios.name.length returns 10 . An attribute is mapped to a Java class member in three possible ways with the following priority until a match is found. If the attribute is named x, then:

public method getX()
public method x()
public field x

Note: The term attribute in this context is not the same as a region attribute.

Region Data

You can also access entry keys and entry data through the region:

  • /portfolios.keySet returns the Set of entry keys in the region
  • /portfolios.entrySet returns the Set of Region.Entry objects
  • /portfolios.values returns the Collection of entry values
  • /portfolios return the Collection of entry values.

The FROM clause /portfolios.values and /portfolios return the same thing. Note that these collections are immutable. Invoking modifier methods on them, such as add and remove, result in an UnsupportedOperationException.
