Terracotta's International Java Tour to Promote Drop-in Scalability of Open Source Frameworks

Terracotta Presents JVM-level Clustering Using Network Attached Memory at Java User Groups

Terracotta, Inc., a leader in delivering groundbreaking solutions for enterprise Java scalability, embarked on an international tour of Java User Groups (JUGs) to promote drop-in scalability of popular open source frameworks, such as Spring, Struts, and containers including Tomcat, Geronimo, and GlassFish. Terracotta executives and engineers will meet with developers throughout North America and Europe to examine new approaches to injecting high availability in web applications with growing loads — without sacrificing performance and scalability.

Currently, confirmed on the tour but with more cities to be added, Terracotta will visit the following JUGs in the USA: NYJavaSIG in New York City; NoVAJUG in Northern Virginia; Java SIG in Palo Alto, CA; Java SIG in Oakland, CA; CJUG in Chicago, IL; and AJUG in Atlanta, GA. In Europe, the company plans to present at: JUG Sardegna Onlus in Sardinia, JUG Ancona in Ancona and Marche, JUG Torino in Turin, JUG Milano in Milan, JUG Padova in Padova, Italy; Javaforum in Sweden; Javagruppen in Demark; Polish JUG in Poland; JavaSvet in Serbia and Montenegro; JUGS in Stuttgart, Germany; CZJUG in Prague, Czech Republic; and JUG Ukraine in Ukraine.

"Terracotta recently visited the Philly JUG and shared insightful expertise on clustering the JVM. We are one of the largest JUGs in the US with over 1,000 members from over 80 companies, and it's great to have a speaker like Terracotta, where so many of our members can instantly apply new coding practices in their business life," said Dave Fecak, Philly JUG president."Our members really got engaged about stateful versus stateless, and how you can get clustering to have a stateful application design."

Building on the success from past JUG meetings, Terracotta will use practical, hands-on examples to guide developers in clustering. Experts will address stateful versus stateless application design, and how clustering the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) allows a stateful object model to scale efficiently in a high-availability deployment environment. The main benefit for developers comes from learning how to keep application state in plain Java objects in an application’s heap while avoiding the pitfalls of Java serialization. This makes applications easier to code, scale, and remain highly available.
