General J2EE: WebLogic - Solution to Caching Large Amounts of Data

  1. WebLogic - Solution to Caching Large Amounts of Data (2 messages)

    We are working with WebLogic at the moment, and have a requirement to cache large amounts of static data in the app server, for use by the web tier. I am reluctant to stick this data in the JVM in case of OutOfMemory exceptions.

    I remember hearing about a "static service" or "static data" that allows access to this data as a managed WebLogic resource.

    Has anyone done this, and if so, how did you approach it?
  2. Hi Ben,

    I would point you toward Tangosol's Coherence product. Coherence has a "distributed" service that allows you to split the data equally across the JVMs that have signed up to participate in the "distributed" service. This seems to be exactly what you are looking for.

    For more information check out the "news" thread concerning our new release, specifically the posts by Cameron Purdy.

  3. Is the size of this data predictable ? How large is it ?
