ABSTRACT: Clustering the JVM
Clustering the JVM instead of the application leads to scalable, fault-tolerant production systems with little to no incremental development effort. This session will use a real world example—including source code—to demonstrate that it is both possible and highly valuable to cluster the JVM. In this session you will learn:
– The definition of a declaratively-clustered JVM
– The current state of the art in Clustering applications and how clustering the JVMimpacts your application
– How clustering the JVM can be achieved
