The presentation delivered by Mark Addy – Senior Middleware Consultant at C2B2 and Infinispan expert - will be a walk through a real life case study for a leading on-line travel and accommodation provider. Mark will demonstrate how an existing replicated EhCache instance running at full capacity was replaced with a scalable, redundant, distributed Infinispan based solution. This presentation will take you through architecture selection, the importance of load testing, performance tuning and best practices applied when deploying to production.

Expect a technical deep dive which will interest developers and architects!

If your applications caching capability is preventing you from scaling up or handling bursts in traffic then you may have considered some of the data grid technologies available. This session walks you through two real world solutions designed and implemented using open source Infinispan for a global on-line travel agency. Both outcomes resulted in reduced latency, dynamic scaling and a massively increased caching capacity.

The first part will describe an existing replicated cache running at full capacity and how this was replaced with a distributed solution that allowed the application to scale dramatically with a performance improvement to boot.

Secondly we will look at proof of concept for an application with a problematic design and how another distributed caching solution incorporating grid-execution saved the day providing massive scale out and low latencies.

‘Problem Solving’ Sessions

Following your suggestions, we’re introducing the new Problem Solving panel sessions which give you an opportunity to discuss various JBoss-related problems you may want to share and discuss with the rest of the JBUG members. If you want to ask others for help and advice, discuss the issues, listen to suggestions and find the solutions – let us know! Email your topic to [masked] and we will be more than happy to add your session to the agenda.

Lightning Talks

We are also opening up the floor to anyone using JBoss who has a tale to share. We are looking for a number of lightning talks 5 - 10 minutes in length where you can share your experiences, problems or wonderful solutions with the rest of the community. This is a huge opportunity to develop new or hone existing speaking skills!
If you are interested, please send the title of your talk to [masked] .
