May 2009 Meeting - Distributed Programming with Hazelcast

For the Tampa Java User Group's May 2009 meeting, we will take a look at distributed application development.  With the momentous rise of cloud computing, distributed programming tools  are becoming valuable assets to developers.  In our next meeting, we will have a presentation on Hazelcast by Talip Ozturk (creator), an open source data clustering framework for Java.

As always, if you plan to attend, make sure to bring a colleague.  An RSVP email will be sent later, so be sure to respond so we can plan accordingly.  There will be food and plenty of prizes and giveaways.

Today's applications are getting more and more distributed everyday and it is well-known that distributed programming is hard. With Hazelcast though, distributed programming is easy and lots of fun. Common reaction of Hazelcast users is 'Ooh my God, this cannot be that easy'. Hazelcast is an opensource transactional, distributed/partitioned implementation of queue, map, set, list, lock and executor service for Java. Hazelcast is for you if you like to easily:
* share data/state among many servers (e.g. web session sharing)
* cache your data (distributed cache)
* cluster your application
* partition your in-memory data
* send/receive messages among applications
* distribute workload onto many servers
* take advantage of parallel processing
* provide fail-safe data management

In this session, we will cover:
* Introduction to Hazelcast
* Code samples
* Use-cases
* Demo
* Internals of Hazelcast
* Q/A
