I am working on a solution using Infinispan as a remote cache . The core application is in its own JVM and connected to a Infinispan Cluster for many of its data needs.
We are able to connect, configure, store & retrieve data without issues. As progress was made, the need to query data arose. But I found that, the query module is not supported with remote cache.
Without the ability to query the remote cache, the whole approach with Infinispan could potentially be dropped. The questions i have at this point
1) Enabling of Indexing, querying for remote caches- Is this somewhere in your project road map? Can we wait for it?
2) What are the alternatives for us at this point of time, before we consider dropping the architecture?
Query over hotrod is on the roadmap: https://issues.jboss.org/browse/ISPN-484
ATM you can obtain the entire list of keys over hotrod and (RemoteCache.keySet()) - that might help you with queries based on the key set.
