9/10/2004 - JBoss®, Inc., the Professional Open Source company, announced the immediate availability of JBossCache 1.1, which provides a powerful replicated and transactional cache. In addition, JBoss and Sleepycat Software, Inc., makers of Berkeley DB, announced a partnership to provide Java application developers with Berkeley DB Java Edition integrated and bundled with JBossCache 1.1, as well as Professional Open Source 24x7 support and services. JBossCache is available under the business-friendly LGPL (Lesser General Public License) open source license.
"JBoss and Sleepycat are both committed to making Professional Open Source a safe and low-cost option for enterprises," said Marc Fleury, chairman and CEO of JBoss, Inc. "With the integration of JBossCache and Berkeley DB Java Edition, both companies are committing resources to help enterprises maximize performance, transactional integrity, persistence and recoverability to their Java applications."
Under the terms of the partnership, JBoss and Sleepycat will jointly market and provide Professional Open Source services for JBossCache with Berkeley DB Java Edition. JBoss will offer support for JBossCache, and Sleepycat will offer backline support. Berkeley DB Java Edition will ship with every copy of JBossCache as the default persistence option, providing an ideal solution for developers and OEMs who require replication in addition to transactional persistence without the need for an external database.
"The combination of JBossCache and Berkeley DB Java Edition should appeal to developers looking for high performance data access using an open source, Java-based approach," said Carl Olofson, IDC's program director for information management and data integration research.
"Berkeley DB Java Edition and JBossCache bring unmatched performance and reliability to enterprise-grade applications," said Mike Olson, CEO of Sleepycat. "By pre-integrating JBossCache with Berkeley DB Java Edition and committing to joint support and services, we are making it faster and easier for developers to build high performance Java applications."
JBossCache performs basic functionality such as locking, replication and transaction management, all of which can be configured. JBossCache features a tree-structured replicated transactional cache, which can be used for replication of any plain old Java object (POJO). Auto-detection of modifications to POJOs substantially cuts down on network communication, resulting in improved performance and speed. Features of JBossCache 1.1 include:
