Has the process of developing and delivering software really changed?

As announced at the London Coherence SIG last week, we’ve released a new set of updates to the Coherence Incubator, the major highlights being;
Introduction of the new Examples Project: This contains a set of Coherence Incubator Examples. Once easy download that includes all of the patterns, including multiple push-replication deployments.
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 [...]
Coherence clustering technology makes a lot of sense for customers to be able to scale applications horizontally and reliably with very fast predictable performance. This is of course easy to do within one data center on a fast network. One of the common challenges that customers have is around High Availability and Disaster Recovery and keeping data synchronized across data centers. Normally Coherence is optimized to use UDP unicast or multicast, but what happens if the network is unreliable and/or has high latency which is common when networking multiple data centers?&nb
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 [...]
Here’s the current agenda for the next London Coherence SIG event, to occur on the 29th of October, from 2pm to 6pm at the Oracle London Office.

1. Coherence and Incubator Update
Noah Arliss: Coherence Engineering, United States
In this talk we’ll look at some of the new features in Coherence 3.5.2 [...]
Be among the first to take a look Oracle Coherence 3.5, the new release that enables applications to work with massive data sets in-memory. Listen to this webcast by Cameron Purdy, VP of Development and creator of Coherence, to hear how the new features and functionality can:
• Support multi-terabyte data grids while reducing the operational complexity of large deployments
• Improve service levels by automatically detecting and correcting service disruptions
Oracle this week shipped an update to its Coherence in-memory data grid, a member of a class of middleware that some say may be on the cusp of broader adoption for cloud computing.
In-memory data grids store information that applications need in memory across a pool of servers, instead of reading it off disks, resulting in major performance gains.
Whilst setting up a development environment for Coherence is relatively trivial, planning and moving this into production requires considerable testing and careful consideration to ensure the full benefits of Coherence are realized. The following observations and guidelines are meant to supplement those outlined in the Coherence Production Checklist, Performance Tuning and Best Practices guides, not to replace them. These documents should be read prior to reading this document, as the contents of these documents are not going to be replicated here.
