A new quick start guide for remote queries over Hot Rod

Following up on the previous post on Infinispan remote queries, we've prepared a quick start guide to get you up and running with remote queries in minutes.

It's a simple Java application that places some data in a remote cache and then retrieves it using queries over Hot Rod. On top of that, the project also contains a C++ companion app contributed by Ion Savin that uses the C++ Hot Rod client and is able to read and write (but not query, yet) the same data, demonstrating interoperability between C++ and Java clients. At this point the Protobuf encoding support comes in a few C++ external helper classes rather than being part of the C++ client, but this is going to improve in the upcoming versions.
The code for this app is hosted on Github under the jboss-jdg-quickstarts project.
Please note this tutorial was written for the JBoss Data Grid (JDG), but it applies to Infinispan as well. We welcome you to try it and let us know what you think!
