VMware vFabric GemFire 6.5: modern data management for modern applications

Just some of the properties of new, modern applications are that they tend to be highly interactive, data rich, include business processes, and are available over the web from PCs and mobile devices. Powering these applications are platforms that leverage virtualized infrastructure, provide just the right amount of functionality and can scale easily as demand shifts.

VMware’s vFabric Cloud Application Platform is just such a platform designed to run Spring applications most efficiently and deliver the modern application experience. An essential component of this platform is vFabric GemFire. vFabric GemFire in-memory distributed data management brings data to applications with low latency, high reliability and linear, dynamic scalability. We are pleased to announce vFabric GemFire version 6.5.

Gemini Web Release Candidate

The first release candidate of the Gemini Web project is available for download. See the bug list for what’s changed since milestone 4. Thanks to Violeta Georgieva of SAP for her continued contributions.

The project is due for an Eclipse review on 20 October so that it can graduate from incubation and ship a 1.1.0 release by the end of October. The Virgo project, which depends on Gemini Web, should also graduate and ship its 2.1.0 release concurrently with Gemini Web.

New Spring Integration Samples

Based on your overwhelming requests for more Spring Integration samples and more usable structure we are pleased to make the following announcement:

Starting with the current release of Spring Integration the samples will no longer be included with Spring Integration distribution. Instead we’ve switched to a much simpler collaborative model that should promote better community participation and community contributions. Samples now have a dedicated Git SCM repository and a dedicated JIRA Issue Tracking system. Sample development will also have its own lifecycle which is not dependent on the lifecycle of the framework releases although the repository will still be tagged with each major release for compatibility reasons. The great benefit to the community is that we can now add more samples and make them available to you right away without waiting for the release of the framework. Having its own JIRA that is not tied up to the the actual framework is also a great benefit. You now have a dedicated place to suggest samples as well as report issues with existing samples. Or you may also want to submit a sample to us as an attachment through the JIRA and if we believe your sample adds value we would be more then glad to add it to our samples repository properly crediting the author.

Mixing RabbitMQ with Spring Python

RabbitMQ is a powerful messaging broker based on the Advanced Message Queueing Protocol (AMQP). In an earlier post, we looked into building a Python stock ticker program. We compared using RabbitMQ’s pika with py-amqplib, and how it was easy to transition from one to the other with minimal changes.

In this article, we’ll show how pika can easily be used by Spring Python. Spring Python is an implementation of the concepts of Spring with the language of Python. It includes many features such as dependency injection. If we choose to build a Spring-like application in Python, it is easy to utilize pika.

Announcing GORM for Redis

One of the major movements inspired by the rise of the cloud platform is the growing interest in alternative storage techniques to traditional relational databases. One such storage mechanism is Redis, a high performance key/value store that is playing an important part in future cloud infrastructure.

There has been a lot of interest in Redis within the Grails community and hot on the heels of the Redis 2.0.0 release we are pleased to announce the availability of GORM for Redis Milestone 1.

What is GORM for Redis? Quite simply it allows Grails developers used to the convenience of features such as dynamic finders, criteria and named queries to take advantage of Redis as their underlying store instead of Hibernate.
