Video: Coherence Community on - 4 Projects available under CDDL-1.0

If you work with Oracle Coherence and you're not familiar with the Coherence Community on you're missing out.

The Coherence Community was launched on in June 2013, operating under the Open Source Initiative's Common Development and Distribution License (CDDL-1.0). Four projects are currently available for your participation:
  • Coherence Hibernate Integration
  • Coherence Spring Integration
  • Oracle Tools
  • The Coherence Incubator

You'll learn a lot more about the Coherence Community in the video above, which features my conversation with Oracle Coherence Senior Principal Solutions Architect Brian Oliver and Oracle Coherence Consulting Solutions Architect Randy Stafford, two of the people behind the creation and management of the Community and it's projects.

  4. DevOps Basics: Track Down High CPU Thread with ps, top and the new JDK7 jcmd Tool | Frank Munz
    "The approach is very generic and works for WebLogic, Glassfish or any other Java application," say Frank Munz. "UNIX commands in the example are run on CentOS, so they will work without changes for Oracle Enterprise Linux or RedHat. Creating the thread dump at the end of the video is done with the jcmd tool from JDK7." Frank has captured the process in the posted video.

    I usuallly don't post two items from the same person in one day, but this post from ZDNet blogger Joe McKendrick deals with some critical issues affecting those in IT. As McKendrick puts it: "IT professionals are under considerable pressure to deliver more value to the business, versus being good at coding and testing and deploying and integrating."
  10. Running RichFaces on WebLogic 12c | Markus Eisele
    "With all the JMS magic and the different provider checks in the showcase this has become some kind of a challenge to simply build and deploy it," says Oracle ACE Director Markus Eisele. His detailed post will help you to meet that challenge.
