EnterpriseEhcache

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

Description

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

Speaker

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.

Building and Deploying 12 Factor Apps in Scala and Java

April 18, 2017

The twelve-factor app is a modern methodology for building software-as-a-service apps:

• Use declarative formats for setup automation, to minimise time and cost for new developers joining the project.

• Have a clean contract with the underlying operating system, offering maximum portability between execution environments.

• Are suitable for deployment on modern cloud platforms, obviating the need for servers and systems administration.

• Minimise divergence between development and production, enabling continuous deployment for maximum agility.

• And can scale up without significant changes to tooling, architecture, or development practices.

We will build a RESTful web service in Java and deploy the app to CloudFoundry. We will go over how to build a cloud manifest, how to keep our database credentials and application configuration outside of our code by using user-provided services and go over what it takes to build a 12 Factor application in the cloud. This presentation will be heavy on code and light on slides!
