Welcome to Developing Remote Clients for Oracle Coherence. This document describes how to configure Coherence*Extend and how to develop remote clients in Java, C++, and .NET. This document also includes instructions for developing remote clients using Coherence REST.


Developing Remote Clients for Oracle Coherence is intended for the following audiences:

  • Primary Audience – Application developers who want to write and deploy clients that use C++, .NET, and REST to interact with remote caches that reside in a Coherence cluster.

  • Secondary Audience – System architects who want to understand core Oracle Coherence concepts and want to build data grid-based solutions that include remote clients.

The audience must be familiar with the respective client technologies as well as Java to use this guide. In addition, the examples in this guide require the installation and use of the Oracle Coherence product. For details about installing Coherence for Java and the respective client technologies, see Installing Oracle Coherence. The use of an IDE is not required to use this guide, but is recommended to facilitate working through the examples.
