public interface MapLoaderLifecycleSupport
Initializes this MapLoader implementation. Hazelcast will call this method when the map is first used on the HazelcastInstance. Implementation can initialize required resources for the implementing mapLoader, such as reading a config file and/or creating a database connection. References to maps, other than the one on which this
MapLoaderis configured, can be obtained from the
hazelcastInstancein this method's implementation.
On members joining a cluster, this method is executed during finalization of the join operation, therefore care should be taken to adhere to the rules for
PostJoinAwareService.getPostJoinOperation(). If the implementation executes operations which may wait on locks or otherwise block (e.g. waiting for network operations), this may result in a time-out and obstruct the new member from joining the cluster. If blocking operations are required for initialization of the
MapLoader, consider deferring them with a lazy initialization scheme.
hazelcastInstance- HazelcastInstance of this mapLoader.
properties- Properties set for this mapStore. see MapStoreConfig
mapName- name of the map.
void destroy()Hazelcast will call this method before shutting down. This method can be overridden to clean up the resources held by this map loader implementation, such as closing the database connections, etc.
