Using the Scripts In The Package

When you download and extract the Hazelcast ZIP or TAR.GZ package, you will see the following scripts under the /bin folder that provide basic functionalities for member and cluster management.

The following are the names and descriptions of each script:

  • / start.bat: Starts a Hazelcast member with default configuration in the working directory.

  • / stop.bat: Stops the Hazelcast member that was started in the current working directory.

  • Provides basic functionalities for cluster management, such as getting and changing the cluster state, shutting down the cluster or forcing the cluster to clean its persisted data and make a fresh start. See the Using the Script section to learn the usage of this script. / start.bat scripts lets you start one Hazelcast instance per folder. To start a new instance, please unzip Hazelcast ZIP or TAR.GZ package in a new folder.
You can also use the start scripts to deploy your own library to a Hazelcast member. See the Adding User Library to CLASSPATH section.
