June 2010 - Boosting Hibernate Performance 10x with Ehcache 2.0

***  The June 2010 meeting will be held on Monday June 7 (not last Tuesday of month).  ***


This month we are going to discuss Ehcache 2.0, improvements in the Caching SPI, and how it can help you boost Hibernate performance by up to 10 times.  Speaker Greg Luck, from Terracotta, will be touring the states and will make a special stop in Tampa to talk about Ehcache.  While short notice, I am sure those of you in need of understanding and increasing Hibernate performance will attend.

Title: The new Ehcache 2.0.0 and Hibernate Caching SPI provider - Boost Hibernate Performance by 10x


Abstract: Ehcache is an open source, standards-based cache used in a wide array of applications to boost performance, offload the database and simplify scalability. Ehcache is robust, proven and full-features and this has made it the most widely used Java-based cache.


Greg will walk through the Spring Pet Clinic as an application example and show us how to tune it for maximum performance, both when using Hibernate and when caching result sets directly.  He will show us benchmarking tests the comparative application performance of Ehcache EX 1.8 versus MySQL, Memcached and a leading In-Memory Data Grid, including the impressive performance increases from the latest Terracotta 3.2 Server Array.  Finally Greg will also discuss some upcoming features in Ehcache 2.0 such as JTA, bulk loading, the new Hibernate 3.3 provider and write-behind.

May 2010 - RESTful Enterprise Web Services with RestEasy

For the May's meeting the Tampa Java User Group will cover the topic of RESTful web services.  If you attended last month's software symposium conference you know that REST is rapidly becoming the centerpiece for scalable architectures.  This month, speaker Cameron Ingram will provide a thorough introduction to REST using JBoss's RestEasy framework.  The meeting is scheduled for May Tuesday 25 and will be packed with useful information about REST web services constructions.

-= Presentation =-


REST is the reason why the Web is so successful, Roy Fielding’s PhD thesis explains why. Learn how to create webservices that use the programmable web correctly. Find out why big companies like Amazon and Yahoo are building RESTful Web Services. See how the concepts of REST and resource oriented architectures (ROA) can be used to make distributed systems with service oriented architectures (SOA) successful. This talk will focus on JAX-RS with the JBoss RestEasy project. RESTEasy is a JBoss project that provides various frameworks to help you build RESTful Web Services and RESTful Java applications. It is a fully certified and portable implementation of the JAX-RS specification.
