October 19, 2010 @ 7:00pm – High-Performance Scalability for Enterprise Applications with Enterprise Ehcache


Scaling enterprise applications is hard. Traditional architectures that use the database as a hub of application data and shared state lead to performance bottlenecks, excessive database license and hardware costs, and vendor lock-in. Many homegrown or patched-together solutions at worst don’t work and at best suck hours of developer time that could be better spent elsewhere.

Enterprise Ehcache is an easy-to-deploy solution to these hard-to-solve scale and throughput problems. Ehcache has long been the de facto standard for Java caching and is the default cache for many popular frameworks and containers such as Hibernate, Spring, Tomcat, JBoss, WebLogic, WebSphere, and ColdFusion. In this presentation you will learn how to use Enterprise Ehcache to speed up and scale out your application from one node to 1,000s, to large virtualized environments and clouds:
* Background—standard caching theory and practice
* Getting started—the Ehcache API and configuration
* Web caching
* Advanced scaling techniques—configuring and deploying a distributed cache
* Flexibility, management, and control—decorators, listeners, statistics, and monitoring
* Cloud deployment
* Tuning and monitoring best practices


On short notice we had a speaker change. Dan Juengst had a schedulling conflict. Instead Eric Mizell from Terractotta will give the presentation:

As a Solutions Architect on the Field Engineering Team for Terracotta, Eric Mizell helps enterprise IT organizations improve their service availability and application performance through the application of the industry leading Terracotta Java Scalability Technology.  Eric has over 12 years of experience designing and developing enterprise systems where performance and scalability were essential. Outside the office, he spends time with his family and especially enjoys coaching his son’s baseball team.

The Illusion of Control: Secrets Within Your Java-Based Software Supply Chain

Tuesday, September 15, 2015

You may not realize it, but you have a Java-based software supply chain. There is a massive volume of open source and proprietary components being consumed within your software supply chain at a very high velocity. Within it, a lot of inefficiencies are *hidden* to you and are silently sabotaging your efforts to accelerate development, improve efficiency and maintain quality. During the meeting, I will openly share insight about your use of Java that will change the way you think about everything, and put you leagues ahead of organizations who are still in the dark.

This year, I authored the 2015 State of the Software Supply Chain Report – a quantitative analysis of 160,000 Java-centric development organizations that consumed 17 billion open source and proprietary software components from over 105,000 projects — all hosted on Maven Central. While the average organization consumed 240,000 components in 2014, the study revealed evidence of inefficient software sourcing practices, building in outdated components, and using software with known security vulnerabilities or potentially risky license types by mistake.

Attendees will also learn how organizations like ServiceNow, Blackboard and DHS are applying proven supply chain principles from the manufacturing industry toward improving their Java-centric DevOps and Continuous Delivery practices. Then, I will shed light on pending legislation in the U.S. Congress that may change the way all of us develop software in the future.
