Am 19. November 2015 lädt die Java Usergroup Berlin-Brandenburg und die E-Post Development GmbH zum Themenabend JBoss Middleware Clustering: status and outloook mit Bela Ban, Galder Zamarreño, Tristan Tarrant und Paul Ferro ein. Alle Vorträge werden auf Englisch gehalten.

Die Vorträge

Overview on JGroups (Bela Ban): JGroups is a library for cluster communication. It provides cluster management (joining and leaving members, and handling crashed members), sending and receiving of messages reliably (e.g. over IP multicast), plus high-level functionality such as RPCs across clusters. In this talk, Bela will give an overview of what JGroups is and what it can be used for, and show some code samples.

Java 8 in Infinispan 8: Distributed Streams and Functional Map (Galder Zamarreño): Infinispan is a distributed in-memory key/value data store and recently Infinispan 8 was released which takes advantage of the new Java 8 features to provide new ways to interact with the data:

  • Stream operations exposed by Infinispan’s ConcurrentMap implementation can now be distributed, meaning that the processing can be distributed increasing the level of parallelization to be cluster wide.

  • A brand new experimental Functional Map API has been developed that provides a fully-asynchronous, lambda-based, API for interacting with data. The aim of this API is to complement existing Infinispan APIs while at the same time offering an improved key/value data store experience compared to Java’s ConcurrentMap and JSR-107’s JCache.

In this talk, Galder give an introduction about the Distributed Streams and Functional Map API, explaining the best use cases for them and showing examples on how to make the most of these new APIs.

Infinispan: Distributed Cross-Application Caching (Tristan Tarrant): Infinispan is a Java library for embedded caching. It is also a server for remote caching. It can run as a local cache. It can also scale to hundreds of distributed nodes. You can use it to store, retrieve, query, compute and listen to changes in your data.

In this talk Tristan will provide an overview of the variety of uses to which you can put Infinispan in your applications, from simple Java applications, to cross-language, cross-platform application ecosystems.

Clustering in WildFly 10 (Paul Ferro): WildFly, formerly JBoss Application Server, has made its name as the world’s fastest Java EE7 application server. This talk will provide an overview of new and improved clustering features in the latest releases, including the public clustering API, singleton deployments, and using WildFly as a pure-java load balancer.

Die Redner

Galder Zamarreño is a core R&D engineer at JBoss, a division of Red Hat. He is one of the founding engineers of Infinispan, Red Hat’s distributed, in-memory key-value store and he currently spends most of his time developing Infinispan’s Functional Map API as well as other data grid and caching functionality. He is very keen on functional programming and has been developing Scala since 2009. Galder has previously worked with JBoss customers helping them build highly distributed and massively scalable Application Server clusters based on technologies such as JGroups and JBoss Cache. Prior to joining Red Hat, Galder worked in the Retail industry where he was a software developer involved in the development of an EFT software switch solution based on JBoss technologies. The love for distributed systems and open source software comes from his days at ESIDE faculty at University of Deusto (Bilbao, Spain) where he studied a master’s degree in Computer Science.

Bela Ban completed his PhD at the University of Zurich (on network management) and worked 4 years as a researcher at IBM Research, Bela spent 2 years at Cornell as a post-doc, and starting JGroups, a toolkit for reliable group communication.

Bela then worked for Fujitsu Network Communications in San Jose, CA, for 4 years (network management for optical switches).

In 2003, he joined JBoss (as employee #007) to work full-time on JBossCache and JGroups. Later, he handed over JBossCache to focus only on JGroups. To this day he’s still working on JGroups…​ but recently started a new project jgroups-raft

Bela’s interests include network protocols, performance, group communication, running, biking, beerathlon and tennis, but not necessarily in that order.

Bela doesn’t like maven, scala and talking about himself in the third person.

Tristan Tarrant has been coding since 1984, using and contributing to open source since 1993 (Exult, SANE, GNOME, Wine, etc), coding in Java since 1996, at Red Hat since 2011 and leading the Infinispan team since 2014…​ but he’s still young at heart! He doesn’t favour either vi or Emacs, although he’s still fond of the Turbo Pascal IDE with its Wordstar keybindings. In his spare time he plays guitar and hikes on mountain paths.
