There are many administrative tasks to consider when moving Coherence applications to a production environment. Tasks such as testing the network environment and tuning production systems are essential for a successful deployment.
Part I contains the following chapters:
Deploying Coherence Applications
Coherence can be deployed as a standalone application or as a Java EE application to an application server. Specific instructions are provided for WebLogic Server deployment in addition to instructions for generic application server deployment.
Performing a Network Performance Test
Coherence provides a datagram utility and a message bus utility for testing network performance between two or more computers. Any production deployment should be preceded by a successful run of both tests.
Performing a Multicast Connectivity Test
Coherence includes a multicast test utility that checks whether a network environment supports multicast communication. Any production deployment should be preceded by a successful run of the multicast test.
A critical part of successfully deploying Coherence solutions is to tune the application and production environment to achieve maximum performance.
There are many production related issues to consider when moving a Coherence solution from a development or test environment to a production environment.
