|Starting and Stopping GemFire XD Members / Using gfxd to Start and Stop Members|
You can configure a GemFire XD server or peer to execute SQL scripts during its boot process. You can also use initialization scripts as an alternative to data dictionary persistence.
You specify SQL scripts by using the -init-scripts argument to the gfxd server command, or the init-sql-scripts connection property when using the FabricServer interface. Scipts are executed after the initial DDL execution, during the boot procedure. Use initialization scripts to load data into existing tables or to execute DDL statements that depend on other DDL statements delivered from other peers or servers.
