The Boston Java Meetup Group will host Cameron Purdy of Tangosol to discuss application development considerations for maximum scalable performance and reliability in clustered J2EE environments on May 23, 2005 at 7pm in Somerville, MA. Check out the Java Meetup site for details and map. I will ask them for permission to broadcast this live, but no promises yet.

Check out my blog entry on Tangasol's Coherence clustering software, which I learned about when I met Cameron at the last meeting.

Cameron will focus on improving scalability and scalable performance of applications through the use of clustered caching, and will describe Tangosol's architectural approach to the challenges of reliably sharing live data among clustered JVMs in the application tier while providing transparent fail-over.
