Oracle TopLink includes tight integration with Oracle Coherence. This integration, provided through the TopLink Grid feature, blends the standardization and simplicity of application development using the Java Persistence API (JPA) with the scalability and distributed processing power of Oracle Coherence data grid.
This document describes how to:
Configure TopLink Grid to use the Coherence data grid as the primary data store for entities
Use Coherence as a distributed shared cache
Employ Coherence parallel processing to perform Java Persistence Query Language (JPQL) queries on cached entities
Use the cache store and cache loader interfaces, which have been optimized for EclipseLink JPA, in Coherence applications that run on the grid
This guide is intended for developers who build applications using JPA and want to use the power of the data grid for improved scalability and performance.
