This Oracle by Example (OBE) series provides step-by-step instructions on how to perform a variety of tasks using Oracle Coherence.
Oracle Coherence is a component of Oracle Fusion Middleware that enables organizations to predictably scale mission-critical applications by providing fast and reliable access to frequently used data. By automatically and dynamically partitioning data in memory across multiple servers, Oracle Coherence enables continuous data availability and transactional integrity, even in the event of a server failure. As a shared infrastructure, Oracle Coherence combines data locality with local processing power to perform real-time data analysis, in-memory grid computations, and parallel transaction and event processing. Oracle Coherence comes in three editions: Java Edition, C++ Edition, and .NET Edition.
Oracle Coherence*Web is an extension module that is built-in extension of Oracle Coherence and handles HTTP session management for web application servers such as Oracle WebLogic Server, IBM WebSphere, Tomcat and others. Coherence*Web provides linear scalability for HTTP Session Management in clusters of hundreds of production servers. It can achieve this linear scalability because at its core it is built on Oracle Coherence dynamic partitioning.
The Oracle by Example series reduces the time spent investigating what steps are required to perform a task. Because the step-by-step solutions are built for practical real world situations, not only is knowledge gained through valuable hands-on experience, but also the solutions presented may then be used as the foundation for production implementation, dramatically reducing time to deployment.
