00003 *
00004 * Coherence for C++ allows C++ applications to access Coherence clustered
00005 * services, including data, data events, and data processing from outside
00006 * the Coherence cluster. Typical uses of Coherence for C++ include desktop
00007 * and that require access to Coherence caches.
00008 *
00009 * The Coherence for C++ API consists of:
00010 * @li Shared libraries for a variety of compilers and operating systems
00011 * @li C++ API header files
00012 * @li API documentation
00013 *
00014 * The library allows applications to connect to Coherence*Extend proxies
00015 * running within the Coherence cluster using a high performance TCP/IP-based
00016 * communication layer. The library sends all client requests to the
00017 * Coherence*Extend clustered service which, in turn, responds to client
00018 * requests by delegating to an actual Coherence clustered service (for example
00019 * a Partitioned or Replicated cache service). As on other Coherence platforms,
00020 * C++ Coherence {@link coherence::net::NamedCache caches} are obtained from
00021 * the {@link coherence::net::CacheFactory CacheFactory}.
00022 *
00023 * In order for application data objects to be stored in the cluster they must
00024 * be serializable to the Coherence POF (Portable Object Format). This may be
00025 * accomplished by either modifying the data object to implement the
00026 * {@link coherence::io::pof::PortableObject PortableObject} interface, or
00027 * though the use of the helper template
00028 * {@link coherence::lang::Managed Managed<T>}. The latter offers an easy
00029 * integration route for existing C++ data objects as in most cases no changes
00030 * to the existing data object code are required.
00031 *
00032 * The Coherence for C++ API is pure C++ and is built on top of a managed object
00033 * model which handles the task of memory management. It is thus not necessary
00034 * or allowable to manually delete objects returned from or injected into the
00035 * cache. See {@link coherence::lang::Object Object} for an introduction to the
00036 * object model.
