| Oracle and Java EE
| Cameron Purdy (speaker bio) Vice President, Development (Oracle)
Cameron will be giving a brief talk on Oracle and Java EE at the BACSIG meeting. You don't want to miss this opportunity to meet Cameron and learn more about how Oracle is continuing to make significant investments in the enterprise Java space within products such as WebLogic Server, GlassFish, Coherence, and beyond.
| Oracle Coherence 3.7.1 Overview
| Christer Fahlgren (speaker bio) Principal Solutions Architect (Oracle)
As the industry's leading in-memory data grid product, Oracle Coherence offers unsurpassed data scalability, performance, reliability, and availability. In this presentation we will walk through the new functionality in Oracle Coherence 3.7.1 that will provide customers with greater data reliability and flexibility, significantly increased capacity, improve their online customer experience, and more effective utilization of their existing infrastructure. We will discuss how Oracle Coherence 3.7.1 has unique new capabilities that help meet the challenges faced by enterprise IT, and illustrate the technical and business benefits of the new features in Oracle Coherence 3.7.1
| ACID Transactions from Grid to Database
| Ian Mair (speaker bio) Senior Software Engineer (CloudTran)
When Application Requirements Insist You Persist…
Coherence, and in-memory data grids in general, have been an incredible resource for quickly accessing and processing data with reliable scalability for large client loads. With features like write-through and write-behind, a back-end database can easily be added to the architecture for data persistence, which is necessary to meet the business requirements of some types of applications. Using asynchronous write-behinds will keep the application running at “grid speed,” but it can be tricky to maintain ACID transactionality between the grid and databases.
This discussion presents a reasonable way to implement asynchronous write-behinds with ACID transactions from the Coherence grid to a collection of distributed databases. The approach does NOT use a 2-phase commit protocol but is fast and scalable to maintain all the power and performance of a grid-based application that also persists data transactionally.
| ON24 Success Story - Harnessing the Power of Oracle WebLogic Server and Coherence*Web
| Alexander Livitz (speaker bio) Senior Java Performance Architect (ON24) and Tom Lubinski (speaker bio) President and CEO (SL Corporation)
Leveraging Oracle WebLogic Server with the Oracle Coherence*Web feature of Oracle Coherence is becoming a standard approach to improving performance and scalability of complex applications. This session covers how ON24, a global leader in Webcasting and virtual events, overcame the challenges associated with managing sessions across large Oracle WebLogic Server clusters by separating services (Oracle WebLogic Server pools and clusters) from HTTP sessions to improve performance and scalability and make the overall system's behavior more stable and predictable. The result? Higher throughput, lower latencies, more concurrent users, and a large increase in hardware ROI. The session also shares details on low-overhead system monitoring and management, including data aggregation and analysis.
