Terracotta Announces the Definitive Guide to Java Application and JVM Clustering
Terracotta Founder and CTO Ari Zilka Unveils Comprehensive Guide to Complement Terracotta's Popular Open Source Product

Terracotta, a leader in infrastructure software for enterprise Java scalability, today announced the publication of “The Definitive Guide to Terracotta: Cluster the JVM for Spring, Hibernate and POJO Scalability” by Apress®. The book is available beginning today through Terracotta, Amazon and a number of retail booksellers, including Borders and Barnes & Noble.

The latest in the Definitive Guides series published by Apress, a Berkeley-based company that publishes books for professionals by professionals™, Terracotta’s new book will aid developers in understanding and taking full advantage of Terracotta’s open source scalability solution that clusters the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) directly. The book is a practical guide to using Terracotta as clustering infrastructure software for a wide array of Java applications, including those built with the popular Spring Framework, the Hibernate OR-mapper, and Java SE.

Since launching in late 2006 as an open source product, Terracotta has generated enormous interest among developers for JVM clustering and application scalability. Terracotta’s book builds upon what the company has learned from its open source community and conveniently packages this knowledge to support the rapid adoption the product is seeing in the marketplace. “We’re very excited about the release of ‘The Definitive Guide,’” said Terracotta Founder and CTO Ari Zilka. “It is important for us to continue supporting the community at all levels. Sharing our knowledge about how best to integrate Terracotta with a variety of popular frameworks is an essential part of our mission to help individuals and organizations build highly scalable, high performance Java applications in a simpler, better way.”

Written by Zilka and his team, the book is intended as a guide for developers and architects using Terracotta. It provides detailed explanations of Terracotta’s scaling engine, as well as user best-practices, recipes and prepackaged frameworks. Also included in the book are several pragmatic real-world case studies designed to empower readers to build scalable Java applications without the tradeoffs between high availability and performance that tend to occur today.

“The Definitive Guide” includes information on:

  • How Terracotta works fundamentally, and which pieces and parts users need to deploy Terracotta and Terracotta Integration Modules for various frameworks;
  • Best practices for using Terracotta to offload databases, enhance distributed caches, build Hibernate, build computing grids, and scale HTTP Session replication;
  • Thread coordination and advanced performance tuning;
  • Advanced case studies involving Spring, POJO development, and others.
