People are Talking

People are Talking. Talking about JavaSpaces & distributed caching.

As my co-worker Ed would say, the future is coming!! And so when are the big boys going to notice that the future is coming? Hmmmmm.

Perhaps this technology will be in a few Plan B MRDs this year.

Did Cameron really say this:

Our reason for considering the introduction of JavaSpaces into Coherence is to allow programmers to use the spaces model and the JavaSpaces API to code parts of those transactions. While JavaSpaces is not an effective data management API (i.e. it's not good for replacing a database), it is an effective data processing API (i.e. it can easily be used for computational processing in a grid). So Coherence can certainly bring those two concepts together (data managed by a database and processed using a spaces approach).


Cameron Purdy Tangosol Coherence: The Java Data Grid

Yes he did! He authenticated it with the "Peace" key!

Should be interesting to watch - perhaps embedding Blitz? Why don't you OSS Coherence while you are at it? People still need support. Look at JBoss.

Hi Mike,

In respect of OSS'ing coherence - I think it will be difficult for Tangosol to move to such a model. IMHO, it would be very difficult to cover the significant cost of R&D plus testing using what would be considered acceptable support charges.

Basically I'm suggesting, support covers cost of maintenance plus staff and leaves a little for R&D but probably not least in this case.
