By Paul Werbos, PhD This week (starting August 15), the immediate risk to our lives through cyberblitzkrieg has suddenly risen dramatically, due to new events in cyberspace. If a cyberblitzkrieg on electric power and other critical infrastructure does occur, the level of damage would be comparable in general to the kind of damage we feared [...]

By Jodi Schiller For those of us working in virtual and augmented reality, our days are spent thinking of better and better ways to create more lifelike virtual worlds. It’s easy for us to believe that one day we will be living in a sim indecipherable from “base” reality — or even more likely, that [...]

Apache Ignite 1.7.0 has been rolled out recently and among the new changes you can find a killer one that was being awaited by many Apache Ignite users and customers for a long time - the Non-Collocated Distributed joins support for SQL queries. So this post will be fully dedicated to this feature, and I'll try to shed some light on how the non-collocated distributed joins work and how they are different from the traditional (affinity collocation based) joins available in Apache Ignite.

Affinity Collocation Based Joins

Historically, Apache Ignite allowed executing SQL queries with joins across different tables but it required collocating the data of the caches that are being joined in a query. In fact, in Ignite, collocation can be enabled easily by using the…

Oracle Coherence 12.2.1.1.0 is here!  That's a lot of numbers.  Or three, depending on how you count.  What it really means is that this release is a patch-set and not a large new release.  The release is packed full of goodies for users of the new Federated Caching and Persistence features released in October 2015 as part of Coherence 12.2.1, and also contains many improvements for users of any prior Coherence release.

Here is a summary of the changes.  For a full description of the changes in 12.2.1.1.0, check our release notes.

I recently had the privilege to talk with Forrest Browning, Co-Founder of StacksWare. He is part of an 8-person San Francisco startup that set out to create a software solution that provides real-time application inventorying and metering. As Stanford students in 2014 they were required to do a senior project, which led them to work with VMware's Sanjay Poonen. Sanjay helped them get their start and through work with internal VMware engineers and customer…

Thank you for inviting me, and for the opportunity to audit two days there. I had a fantastic time. Everyone [...]

  • Design and Development
  • All Aspects of Testing (production, soak, load/stress, software and hardware failure, recovery...)
  • Capacity Planning
  • Setting up a Production Environment 

All new features of Coherence 12.2.1 are discussed, including

  • Persistence
  • Federated Caching
  • Distributed Java 8 Lambdas and Streams  
Happy reading!  …

I’m very glad to announce the availability of Coherence on Docker.  While it has been possible to run Coherence within Docker for some time, those deployments were limited by lack of multihost networking in Docker. Since Coherence is multihost in almost all real deployments, this was quite limiting.  

Docker support is provided as a Coherence Community Project at https://coherence.java.net/.  This will take you to a github repository where all Oracle Docker projects live.  There you will find instructions on building Docker images, documentation for setting up a Coherence cluster with Docker, and special topics around enabling Coherence Extend, Federated Caching, Persistence, Elastic Data, and JMX.  

Docker is supported with Coherence 12.2.1+ and Docker 1.9+, and is, of course, limited to platforms supported by those technologies.  

A list of issues is also provided.
