Hi Ashan,

BTW please feel free to start a new thread on a new topic... it is OK.

Well right now it doesn't... that's why you are doing GSoC ;)

Primary functionality from Hazelcast which shadows the current Gora project
aims... to be the best object-to-datastore storage abstraction layer
around. I would say that whatever this means needs to be defined reasonably
soon within the scope of the GSoC project as it is going to give you a much
better opportunity to set off in the right direction.
Two things come to mind...
 * Implement Hazelcast support as a substitute/replication of a NoSQL store
as described here
 * implement Hazelcast support as a caching mechanism for frequently
accessed data.
This would enhance Gora support for accessing data regardless of its
location and would really improve our current query model and support.
there are certainly other applications/potential use cases... the above two
are just off of the top of my head based on previous reading I've done on

Please see above

your project. You should be driving the direction and enjoying yourself as
you do so. We are here as a community to harness and encourage initiatives
such as the one you are undertaking. Feel free to discuss your own ideas
with your mentor.
