Presentation: "TopLink Grid: Scaling JPA applications with Coherence"

Time: Friday 10:30 - 11:30

Location: Wordsworth Room

JPA, the Java Persistence API, is the Java standard for relational database access.   But as is the case for many technologies, scaling JPA applications into large clusters is a challenge.  In this session we’ll introduce Oracle TopLink’s new “TopLink Grid” feature which supports scaling JPA applications through Coherence integration.  We’ll also introduce the new TopLink Grid enabled “JPA on the Grid” application architecture in which the underlying relational database is replaced by Coherence and all standard database operations, including JPQL query execution, are handled by Coherence.   In this session we’ll demo how easy it is to leverage Coherence from JPA using TopLink Grid and how to build standards compliant Java EE applications that scale.
