Use Of Oracle Coherence in Oracle Utilities Application Framework

Anthony Shorten
Principal Product Manager

In the batch architecture for the Oracle Utilities Application Framework, a Restricted Use License of Oracle Coherence is included in the product. The Distributed and Named Cache functionality of Oracle Coherence are used by the batch runtime to implement clustering of threadpools and submitters to help support the simple and complex architectures necessary for batch.

Partners ask about the libraries and their potential use in their implementations. There are a few things to understand:

  • Restricted Use License conditions. The license is for exclusive use in the managing of executing executing members (i.e. submitters and threadpools) across hardware licensed for use with the Oracle Utilities Application Framework based products. It cannot be used in any code outside of that restriction. Partners cannot use the libraries directly in their extensions. It is all embedded in the Oracle Utilities Application Framework.
  • Limited Libraries. The Oracle Coherence libraries are restricted to a subset needed by the license. It is not a full implementation of Oracle Coherence. As it is a subset, Oracle does not recommend using the Oracle Coherence Plug-In available for Oracle Enterprise Manager to be used with the Oracle Utilities Application Framework implementation of the Oracle Coherence cluster. Use of this plugin against the batch cluster will result in missing and incomplete information presented to the plug-in causing inconsistent results in that plug-in.
  • Patching. The Oracle Coherence libraries are shipped with the Oracle Utilities Application Framework and therefore are managed by patches for the Oracle Utilities Application Framework not Coherence directly. Unless otherwise directed by Oracle Support, do not manually manipulate the Oracle Coherence libraries.

The Oracle Coherence implementation with the Oracle Utilities Application Framework has been optimized for use with the batch architecture with a combination of prebuilt Oracle Coherence and Oracle Utilities Application Framework based configuration files.

Note: If you need to find out the version of the Oracle Coherence Libraries used in the product at any time then the libraries are listed in the file $SPLEBASE/etc/ouaf_jar_versions.txt

The following command can be used to see the version:

cat $SPLEBASE/etc/ouaf_jar_versions.txt | grep coh

For example in the latest version of the Oracle Utilities Application Framework (4.4.0.0.0):

cat /u01/umbk/etc/ouaf_jar_versions.txt | grep coh

coherence-ouaf                   12.2.1.3.0
coherence-work                   12.2.1.3.0
