You can use the native C++ client to connect to Hazelcast cluster members and
perform almost all operations that a member can perform.
Clients differ from members in that clients do not hold data. The C++ client is
by default a smart client, i.e., it knows where the data is and asks directly for the correct member.
You can disable this feature (using the
ClientConfig::setSmart method) if you do not want
the clients to connect to every member.
The features of C++ clients are listed below:
Access to distributed data structures (IMap, IQueue, MultiMap, ITopic, etc.).
Access to transactional distributed data structures (TransactionalMap, TransactionalQueue, etc.).
Ability to add cluster listeners to a cluster and entry/item listeners to distributed data structures.
Distributed synchronization mechanisms with ILock, ISemaphore and ICountDownLatch.
