Last week's kickoff of FESI's research program went very well. There are a number of folks (>500) who are now following this blog on Java.net, and a number who have gotten involved. While we wait for more folks, we'll be researching new technologies, the first being NOSQL databases.
If the kind of topics we're research interests you, please feel free to join the project;...
I'v just published an integration module for using GridGain with Spring Batch. Using this module you can distribute Spring Batch processing inside a GridGain grid with the implementation of remote chunking.
FESI Research Program Overview
FESI is the Free and open source software Enterprise Solutions Institute. We are a research program designed to study tomorrow's internet technologies as a means to teach folks in the local workforce how to use technologies our customers will likely want to implement. We also perform this research to prepare local engineers with the knowledge and...
In my famous company innoQ I currently have the opportunity to work on a real cool tool: Bundle-Bee. It claims to be able to take any OSGi bundle and distribute the computational load to an ad-hoc grid (e.g. all machines in an office) without special setup or configuration.
We just released version 0.5.3 which is still very restricted and far from feature complete - we don't even...
This blog entry describes how WebSphere eXtreme Scale uses memory. This allows customers to better size how much memory they need when storing a large number of key value pairs in a grid.
Differences between disk and memory based XTP and XDP.
Is XTP about memory based infrastructure or is there more to it.
This describes the various characteristics of DataGrids in terms of features and how they work. It should help people understand what this new technology does.
Perhaps the most widely adopted style of software architecture is the N-Tier architecture... the separation of concerns based on stacked tiers of functionality. Is the emergence of Grids and Service-Oriented Architecture going to change the way most software architects approach their designs?
