Configuration

The EmbeddedStorageManager is mostly created with factory methods of EmbeddedStorage, where the most common settings, like database directory or the root instance, can be configured.

EmbeddedStorageManager storageManager = EmbeddedStorage.start(
    myRoot,                 // root object of entity graph
    Paths.get("data-dir")    // storage data directory
);

Foundations

To achieve a more detailed customization, you can utilize the EmbeddedStorageFoundation factory type. It holds and creates on demand all the parts that form an EmbeddedStorageManager.

NioFileSystem          fileSystem     = NioFileSystem.New();
EmbeddedStorageManager storageManager = EmbeddedStorageFoundation.New()
	.setConfiguration(
		StorageConfiguration.Builder()
			.setStorageFileProvider(
				Storage.FileProviderBuilder(fileSystem)
					.setDirectory(fileSystem.ensureDirectoryPath("storageDir"))
					.createFileProvider()
			)
			.setChannelCountProvider(StorageChannelCountProvider.New(4))
			.setBackupSetup(StorageBackupSetup.New(
				fileSystem.ensureDirectoryPath("backupDir")
			))
			.createConfiguration()
	)
	.createEmbeddedStorageManager();

External Configuration

The artifact microstream-storage-embedded-configuration provides a convenience layer for configuration purposes, as well as facilities to read external configuration.

pom.xml
<dependencies>
	<dependency>
		<groupId>one.microstream</groupId>
		<artifactId>microstream-storage-embedded-configuration</artifactId>
		<version>06.00.00-MS-GA</version>
	</dependency>
</dependencies>

The EmbeddedStorageConfigurationBuilder type consolidates the most widely used parameters from the storage foundations in one place. It’s output is an EmbeddedStorageFoundation from which a EmbeddedStorageManager can be created.

EmbeddedStorageManager storageManager = EmbeddedStorageConfiguration.Builder()
	.setStorageDirectoryInUserHome("data-dir")
	.setBackupDirectory("backup-dir")
	.setChannelCount(4)
	.createEmbeddedStorageFoundation()
	.createEmbeddedStorageManager();

To read an external configuration use ConfigurationLoader and ConfigurationParser or the load*() methods of EmbeddedStorageConfiguration. Out of the box, XML and INI files are supported.

Java (XML)
EmbeddedStorageManager storageManager = EmbeddedStorageConfiguration.load(
	"/META-INF/microstream/storage.xml"
)
.createEmbeddedStorageFoundation()
.createEmbeddedStorageManager();
XML
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<properties>
	<property name="storage-directory" value ="data" />
	<property name="channel-count" value ="4" />
</properties>
Java (INI)
EmbeddedStorageManager storageManager = EmbeddedStorageConfiguration.load(
	"/META-INF/microstream/storage.ini"
)
.createEmbeddedStorageFoundation()
.createEmbeddedStorageManager();
INI
storage-directory = data
channel-count = 4

If you just use EmbeddedStorageConfiguration.load() the default configuration file is used, which is either a file in the classpath root named microstream-storage.properties, or the path configured via the system property microstream.storage.configuration.path.

The full example can be found on GitHub.

Additional Formats

The EmbeddedStorageConfigurationBuilder is based on the common configuration layer, newly introduced in MicroStream 5.0. The artifact configuration, which is a dependency of storage.embedded.configuration, contains support for XML and INI files.

Other formats are available in different artifacts.
