Tangosol have released 2.2 of their great Coherence product. We will definately be upgrading TheServerSide to use this new version. Since I live 5 mins from the Tangosol offices, I can even walk over for support. How great is that!
Some of the new features:
- Application caches can be completely configured using XML deployment descriptors, even for complex multi-tier cache infrastructures. Cache server processes are now supported out-of-the-box, allowing applications to select among in-process, out-of-process and near-cache models at deployment time.
- Applications can define custom cache-eviction policies, in addition to the built-in LRU, LFU and LLRFU (Logarithmic Least Recently/Frequently Used) algorithms. Caches can also be be configured to automatically overflow to disk, to limit memory consumption for extremely large caches and to handle unpredictably large data requirements.
- Configurable thread pools are now provided to ensure the scalable performance of Coherence-based Grid Computing Architectures, Paritioned Caches, parallel-distributed cache queries and database-backed caches.
- Cache statistics, from evictions all the way down to the clustering and network layers, have been standardized and their coverage dramatically expanded.
