After some significant research and development we’ve finally released Oracle Tools 1.1.0. While a seemingly minor update (without breaking anything), it contains some nice improvements over Oracle Tools 1.0.0.
It’s here! Oracle Coherence Incubator Release 11 has now been finalized and made public. Everyone can now pick up the official Maven builds from maven.java.net or via Maven Central in a few hours once the release distribution process has completed.
After using and I guess supporting the Eclipse IDE now for almost 10 years, it’s finally failed badly enough that I’ve dragged into the Trash. Why? The last straw was simply the irritating and annoying unstable editor scrolling performance on a variety of platforms. It’s no longer worth it.
As mentioned at the past few Oracle Coherence Special Interest Group (SIG) and Customer Advisory Board (CAB) meetings, we’ve been busily working away at opening up (open sourcing) the entire Oracle Coherence Incubator for the Coherence Community. I’m very pleased to say that this work is now “almost” complete!
Lately I’ve been doing a bunch of Maven work. For most part I think the worst of it’s over, but for those of you that have not been through the process, perhaps this highly accurate video will prepare you for what you’re in for.
Just uploaded the latest fix patches for Coherence Incubator 10. While mostly minor fixes, there’s also a few new additions, like the new @LiveObject annotation. Check out the Coherence Incubator project pages for more details. http://coherence.oracle.com/display/INC10
Updated to 10.7.1 last night. Unfortunately the mouse pointer acceleration issues aren’t resolved, but network connectivity seems to be way smoother (over the past week I’ve occasionally had to reboot the machine to get the network to work).
However I’m now completely “sold” on the new scrolling (reversed like the iPhone/iPad). :P. That and the new Mail.app are nice. Really looking forward to 10.7.2 or what ever the version is that will resolve the erratic mouse pointer acceleration.
Upgrading from OSX Snow Leopard to OSX Lion has so far been somewhat of a disappointment, especially when compared to previous upgrades. Actually I’m glad it only cost $29, as any more and i would have probably returned it. The upgrade process itself was fairly smooth and seamless (apart from one complete hang/lockup requiring a reboot). It’s the post upgrade, i.e.: adoption, that’s caused the most, or be they “slight” frustrations.
If you’re in London and looking for Coherence training, you’re in luck. Oracle University is now offering regular training. While based on Coherence 3.6 at the moment, it’s a great introduction to Coherence. Moving to Coherence 3.7 will be a snap.
It’s that time again, time for another London Coherence SIG. Although the agenda is yet to be finalized, the theme of the event will be the up-and-coming Coherence 3.7 and Incubator 10 releases. So lock in the date, Tuesday May … Continue reading →

Today Oracle announced and made generally available Coherence 3.6. Like it’s predecessor Coherence 3.5, there’s a lot of stuff in Coherence 3.6, parts of which may be considered entirely new products in the Data Grid space. Having been through four beta releases over the past six months, it’s ready for prime time. You can download [...]

The registration for the next London Coherence SIG, occurring on the 10th of June, is now open. However before you rush to register, there are several important things to note. 1.

Save this date: 10th of June 2010 (Thursday) That’s right. It’s time for another London Coherence SIG. While it’s probably a bit late to be called the “Spring Edition”, unless London starts to warm up quickly it probably should be the “Winter Edition” again. This SIG promises to be larger than ever, in size and [...]

Here’s an overview of what’s happening. See you there!
Session 1: TopLink Grid: Scaling JPA applications with Coherence (Shaun Smith – Principle Product Manager – Oracle)
JPA, the Java Persistence API, is the Java standard for relational [...]
One of the important tasks when designing software (or probably anything for that matter) is creating appropriate/correct/reasonable names for things, whether it be for classes, interfaces, methods or variables. Why? Simple… When someone reads your code they should ideally require little additional documentation, third party contact or alternative education/context to work out what something means, [...]
Save this date: 26th of February 2010 (Friday)
This is when the next London Coherence SIG will be on, in London, at the usual place, the Oracle City Office.

PS: Look forward to some very cool Toplink Grid (think Toplink JPA running purely on Coherence – all [...]
So I’ve finally managed to get a few seconds to upgrade my 13″ Mac Book Pro and Mac Pro to Snow Leopard. For the most part the upgrade was a very simple process. For the Mac Book Pro, I simply inserted the DVD (while running Leopard), clicked on Install and let it do it’s thing. [...]

A significant update to the previously [...]
So cool. Just saw the latest Sun Microsystems home page.
Sun have just released their first in depth Oracle Coherence blue-print (white paper) documenting the architecture, performance and scalability impacts seen in a large application. As a comparison, the document outlines the performance and scalability of an application both with and without using Oracle Coherence. Apart from [...]
It’s hard to believe but another year has passed and it’s time again for Oracle Open World in San Francisco. Like last year, it’s going to be big. Apparently San Francisco is bracing itself for an influx of 85,000 or so delegates, not all talking about Coherence obviously, but there will be a lot more than [...]
