Presentation Abstracts
Next Generation Coherence Deployment with Managed Coherence Servers
David Guy (speaker bio) Principal Software Engineer (Oracle)
David will introduce and demo upcoming Managed Coherence Server functionality in WebLogic Server (WLS) and Coherence 12.1.2. Coherence Managed Servers provides a simplified model for managing operational configuration and application deployment of Coherence applications. Coherence clusters can now be defined within a WLS domain and associated with WLS clusters and managed servers. A new archive called a “Grid Archive”, or GAR file, is now deployable as either an individual component, part of an “Enterprise Archive” (EAR) file or as a shared library The GAR file contains the classes and configuration to support both storage enabled and storage disabled cluster resources.
Innovations in Server-Side Java
Phil Chung (speaker bio) Oracle Principal Solution Architect (Oracle)
The OpenJDK community including Oracle is making the Java Platform and the JVM runtime the best place to run server side code and your private cloud. Many customers concentrate on server side Java SE style systems that may not leverage servlet or JEE containers. For this session, we are focusing on some of the key advancements in the JVM runtime that help these systems today without re-coding to JEE APIs. These highlighted innovations include: adaptive JVM runtime optimizations, scalable design patterns and strategies for engineering optimized systems.
Evolving the Evolvable: Cats, Dogs and other Animals
Aleksandar Seovic (speaker bio) Founder and Managing Director (S4HC)
Portable Object Format (POF) has a built-in support for class evolution. This enables rolling restarts (for zero downtime clusters) and allows multiple applications using different versions of the same class to coexist within a Coherence cluster. However, class evolution support, as currently implemented in Coherence, has certain shortcomings which make the evolution of complex class hierarchies nearly impossible.

In this session we will discuss the problems related to class evolution, explain what the current approaches and their shortcomings are, and present another alternative, that not only makes the evolution of complex class hierarchies possible, but also significantly reduces the amount of serialization-related code developers have to write
Next Generation Coherence Deployment with Managed Coherence Servers
Lina Xu (speaker bio) Principal Member of Technical Staff (Oracle)
Testing a distributed scale-out application comes with a set of unique challenges. Over the course of several years, we've honed our own techniques for how we test various scenarios in our product lifecycle. In this talk Lina will share the lessons we've learned, including real world demonstrations of our HA and large cluster test environments. Over the course of the topic we'll share best practices around setting up these environments, collecting data, and analyzing data when things go wrong.
The Building Blocks for Event Driven Architectures in Coherence 12.1.2
Noah Arliss (speaker bio) Software Development Manager (Oracle)
In this talk Noah defines what the building blocks of event driven architectures are and map those to Coherence components using a real world use case. We'll briefly walk through the semantics of these components while building a solution using the twitter streaming API that we can visualize in real time from our web browser.
