With the release of Coherence 3.7, Oracle's distributed in-memory data grid, Oracle GlassFish Server 3.1 is now fully functional with native Coherence\*Web integration (aka ActiveCache for GlassFish). No update to GlassFish is required.
This feature provided as part of GlassFish Server Control (value adds for paying customers) offers virtually unlimited horizontal scaling without requiring any code change or archive processing since this integration is based on the Coherence\*Web SPI. Adam Leftik discusses this in greater details in his "Active Cache for GlassFish" screencasts: part 1, part 2.
Other enhancements to Coherence include a new Elastic Data capability, dynamic load balancing, automatic proxy discovery and F5 integration. Get your copy of Coherence 3.7 from http://www.oracle.com/goto/coherence.
