Installing Hazelcast Enterprise
To install Hazelcast Enterprise, you can use Docker, the binary, or Java. Then, to unlock the Enterprise features, you need to install your Enterprise license key.
|Hazelcast Enterprise is a commercial product that offers additional features to the Open Source edition, including the security suite and blue/green deployments for clients. If you’re looking to get started with open source Hazelcast, see Installing Hazelcast Open Source.|
Download and extract the binaries.
curl -L 'https://repository.hazelcast.com/download/hazelcast-enterprise/hazelcast-enterprise-5.2.4.tar.gz' | tar xvzf -
wget -O - 'https://repository.hazelcast.com/download/hazelcast-enterprise/hazelcast-enterprise-5.2.4.tar.gz' | tar xvzf -
Download and extract the Hazelcast ZIP file.
To start the cluster, see Start a Local Cluster from Binary.
To install Hazelcast with Java, you can use one of the following:
Hazelcast runs on Java, which means you can add it as a dependency in your Java project.
The Java package includes both a member API and a Java client API. The member API is for embedded topologies where you want to deploy and manage a cluster in the same Java Virtual Machine (JVM) as your applications. The Java client is for connecting to an existing member in a client/server topology, such as Hazelcast Viridian Cloud.
Download and install a supported JDK.
We recommend installing the AdoptOpenJDK.
Add the following to your
<repositories> <repository> <id>private-repository</id> <name>Hazelcast Private Repository</name> <url>https://repository.hazelcast.com/release/</url> <releases> <enabled>true</enabled> </releases> <snapshots> <enabled>false</enabled> </snapshots> </repository> </repositories> <dependencies> <dependency> <groupId>com.hazelcast</groupId> <artifactId>hazelcast-enterprise</artifactId> <version>5.2.4</version> </dependency> </dependencies>
If you’re using JDK 11 or later, you can use Hazelcast as a module in the Java Platform Module System (JPMS).
To run your application with Hazelcast
libraries on the modulepath, use the
hazelcast-5.2.4.jar module name.
The JPMS comes with stricter visibility rules. It affects Hazelcast which uses the internal Java API to reach the best performance results.
Hazelcast needs the
java.se module and access to the following Java
You can provide access to these packages by using
--add-opens (for reflective access) Java arguments.
java --add-modules java.se \ --add-exports java.base/jdk.internal.ref=ALL-UNNAMED \ --add-opens java.base/java.lang=ALL-UNNAMED \ --add-opens java.base/java.nio=ALL-UNNAMED \ --add-opens java.base/sun.nio.ch=ALL-UNNAMED \ --add-opens java.management/sun.management=ALL-UNNAMED \ --add-opens jdk.management/com.ibm.lang.management.internal=ALL-UNNAMED \ --add-opens jdk.management/com.sun.management.internal=ALL-UNNAMED \ -jar hazelcast-5.2.4.jar

Hazelcast Enterprise requires a license key. You can get a 30-day trial license from the Hazelcast website.
<Hazelcast edition>#<Maximum members>#<License key>
<Hazelcast edition>: Name of the product.
<Maximum members>: Maximum number of members that may use the license at the same time.
<License key>: Machine-readable license key.
The first two strings up to the second hash (#) character are optional. These strings provide information about the license key. For example, both of the following formats are valid:
|These licenses are examples and will not work if you install them on members.|
To use Hazelcast Enterprise, you need to configure a license key on all members in a cluster.
|Hazelcast Enterprise license keys are required only for members. You do not need to set a license key for Java clients that are connected to members.|
<hazelcast> <license-key>Your Enterprise License Key</license-key> </hazelcast>
hazelcast: license-key: Your Enterprise License Key
Add your license to the
Config config = new Config(); config.setLicenseKey( "Your Enterprise License Key" );
