Part III Using Caches
Learn about Coherence cache types, how to configure caches and backing maps, how to cache data sources, how to implement quorum policies, and how to extend a cache configuration file.
Part III contains the following chapters:
- Introduction to Coherence Caches
Coherence offers multiple cache types that can be used depending on your application requirements.
- Configuring Caches
You use the Coherence cache configuration deployment descriptor to define and configure caches for use by an application.
- Implementing Storage and Backing Maps
Coherence uses backing maps to store data.
- Caching Data Sources
Coherence is commonly used to cache data sources which makes the cache a temporary system-of-record.
- Serialization Paged Cache
Coherence supports caching large amounts of binary data off-heap.
- Using Quorum
Coherence provides quorum policies that control when specific service actions are allowed in a cluster in order to ensure that a cluster is adequately provisioned.
- Cache Configurations by Example
You can learn how to configure Coherence caches by reviewing a series of sample cache scheme definitions that can be used or modified as required.
- Extending Cache Configuration Files
You can extend Coherence cache configuration files using XML namespaces and namespace handler classes.
