Like the early releases, this release is also full of new and exciting features. NCache 4.1 is not only embedded with some high quality features but there are some major enhancements too.I’m going to discus some of the most important features here.
This new release gives you a whole package for Run Time Data Sharing between multiple platforms (java & .Net) and it contains object level sharing , version based sharing, asynchronous data sharing (event based) and online data sharing across the WAN.
Due to XML serialization with the involvement of DB, Object sharing between .net and java was slow in the earlier editions. But this problem has been overcome in this edition with the help of run time data sharing. As runtime data sharing uses binary serialization instead of typical XML serialization without DB, the results are much faster and trouble free.
Another exciting feature of which has been introduced in NCache 4.1 is Continuous query. With the help of Continuous query you can synchronizes cache and application with each other. It lets you register against a query, which means application can ask for notifications whenever a record (data-set) is updated\modified, added or deleted.
Perhaps the most important feature of NCache is the introduction of much enhanced Bridge Topology. Bridge topology creates bridge node(s) where complete cache is replicated asynchronously over the WAN.
Runtime Data Sharing between .NET & Java
With the help of NCache now you store either .NET objects in the cache can read them as Java objects from your java application or vice versa. Most importantly, this transformation of .NET objects to Java is done by runtime data sharing which is a binary sharing instead of XLM sharing which is much slower as described above.
Multiple Objects Version Support (.NET & Java)
You can now share multiple versions of the same .NET or Java classes across multiple applications.
Continuous Query (.NET & Java)
NCache lets you specify a data-set based on an SQL-like query. It then maintains this data-set in the cache cluster for you and monitors any runtime changes in it, including additions, updates, or deletes.
