Interface21 Limited, the developers of the Spring Framework, and Terracotta, Inc., the Transparent Clustering Company, have signed an agreement to develop and promote the Terracotta Clustered Spring Runtime -- a high performance, transparently clustered runtime that enables scaling out of Java/J2EE applications built on the Spring Framework. The jointly developed solution provides an enterprise-class, high-performance clustered runtime for all Spring applications with no changes required to the application code. This allows developers to be able to write an application for a single Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and configure it to be transparently shared across multiple JVMs.
The joint announcement was made at the Spring Experience, a conference dedicated to the Java/J2EE developers of the Spring Framework community. The conference is being held at the Sheraton Bal Harbour Beach Resort from December 7-10, 2005.
The Spring Framework delivers a full-stack Java/J2EE application framework, while the Terracotta Virtualization Server (TVS) technology provides the application transparency and scalability for the clustered architecture. The TVS shares a single JVM image across multiple J2EE appservers, overcoming one of the main drawbacks of the JVM -- its inability to scale efficiently in a clustered environment.
"The Spring Framework has clearly emerged as the preeminent application framework in the market today, largely due to its steadfast adherence to the principles of simplicity and transparency -- meaning that the developer should spend time on business logic, rather than complicated infrastructure code," said Ari Zilka, founder and CEO of Terracotta. "Terracotta shares these beliefs and delivers a simple clustering and caching environment for Spring applications that does not rely on API's."
Added Rod Johnson, founder of the Spring Framework and CEO at Interface21, "The simplicity of the transparent clustering solution from Terracotta resonates with the core principles behind the Spring Framework: (1) Enterprise Java should be easier; (2) Spring should be a pleasure to use;(3) Application code should not unnecessarily depend on underlying infrastructure API's; (4) It is possible to enjoy a simple, productive programming model, yet achieve extreme scalability."
Highlights of the new runtime include:
Transparent clustering of Spring applications through the use of a Distributed Shared Objects (DSO) technology from Terracotta
Better runtime performance for Spring AOP
Simplified configuration -- easy set-up in standard Spring configuration files
The Terracotta Clustered Spring Runtime, will be available in Q2 2006 with Beta availability in Q1 2006 directly from Terracotta, as well as from Interface21. Interface21 and Terracotta will work together to further develop and promote the use of the Terracotta Clustered Spring Runtime in enterprise Spring deployments.
