Register Generic Classes using Generic Type Handler
You can find a sample implementation in the Programmers' Guide.
NCache also gives you the facility to configure all required generic classes at once, using the Generic Type Handler. For this, first of all, you have to implement the
IGenericTypeProvider interface. Write the code for all the required combinations for all data types that can be used in your application.
For Java, before deploying your JAR files, you need to make sure that:
- You have JDK 11 installed
- Your Environment Variable for Java is set
