"Extreme Transaction Processing - Leveraging Oracle Coherence as a SEDA-based Scalable Event Transaction Processor" - Taylor Gautier (speaker bio) Principal Client Architect (Grid Dynamics)
Modern telco billing processing systems face huge challenges in the search to move from mostly offline, or batch, processing of billing events to handling huge volumes of events in near-real time. The challenges for an architect of such a system are: how to handle the high throughput processing of near real-time events with low latency while maintaining strict transactional semantics and provide high availability and scalability of the service.
We present our extreme transaction processing solution leveraging Oracle Coherence as an in-memory-data-grid (IMDG) which provides reliable messaging, data storage, and asynchronous write-back to RDBMS. The system follows the staged event driven architecture (SEDA) design pattern providing for a flexible and manageable design that is both highly available and scalable. We discuss lessons learned during performance tuning and profiling plus best practices that are applicable for any Coherence user.
JPA, the Java Persistence API, is the Java standard for relational database access. But as is the case for many technologies, scaling JPA applications into large clusters is a challenge. In this session we'll introduce Oracle TopLink's new "TopLink Grid" feature, which supports scaling JPA applications through Coherence integration. We'll also introduce the new TopLink Grid enabled "JPA on the Grid" application architecture in which the underlying relational database is replaced by Coherence and all standard database operations, including JPQL query execution, are handled by Coherence. In this session we'll demo how easy it is to leverage Coherence from JPA using TopLink Grid and how to build standards compliant Java EE applications that scale.
"Coherence Incubator Update & the Processing Pattern Revisited" - Noah Arliss (speaker bio) Senior Software Engineer (Oracle)
This presentation will discuss some of the feature themes for the next set of Coherence Incubator releases planned for the end of January. We've done a lot of work since the first release of the Processing Pattern. In this talk we'll look at some of the changes and new features to enable "compute-grid" style development with Coherence.
We look forward to seeing you all at the 6th NYCSIG meeting on January 14th.
