JBOSS AND SLEEPYCAT TO DELIVER INTEGRATED JBOSSCACHE
WITH BERKELEY DB JAVA EDITION
Optimized Solution Combines the Speed of Caching With a Reliable Storage
High-Performance Persistence and Replication
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., JavaOne Booth # 1509 June 28, 2004 JBoss®, Inc.,
provider of the most popular Java(TM) application server, and Sleepycat
Software, Inc., makers of Berkeley DB, today announced a developer version of
JBossCache(TM) integrated with Berkeley DB Java Edition. With JBossCache
providing rapid access to elements in memory and Berkeley DB Java Edition as
a reliable storage engine, developers now have an optimized solution that
delivers high performance, transactional integrity, persistence and
recoverability to Java applications.
"JBoss is driving improved J2EE application performance with innovative
caching techniques such as with JBossCache and the Berkeley DB Java Edition,"
said Pierre Fricke, vice president, Application and Integration
Infrastructure, DH Brown.
Berkeley DB Java Edition will be integrated and bundled with JBossCache 1.1,
the latest version, which is ideal for developers and OEMs who require
replication in addition to transactional persistence without the need for an
external database. JBossCache provides a first-level cache and allows
persistence of components into Berkeley DB Java Edition as a second-level
cache. Loading and storing objects to and from the database is completely
transparent, eliminating the need for developers to write their own
persistence implementation into the application. Moreover, more elements can
be stored in the cache for rapid access.
"JBoss has always focused on delivering products that take advantage of the
latest technologies. We did this with the initial release of JBossCache,
which implements an aspect-oriented programming (AOP) framework to
significantly improve replication and speed performance," said Marc Fleury,
CEO of JBoss, Inc. "Now, with the integration of Sleepycat's robust
transactional storage engine, JBoss is taking another significant step to
improve the reliability and performance of JBossCache for Java developers."
"Berkeley DB Java Edition complements JBossCache perfectly by providing fast,
reliable and recoverable persistence in a pre-integrated package" said Mike
Olson, president and CEO of Sleepycat Software. "We believe the combination
provides compelling value for Java developers building large-scale,
mission-critical applications requiring high performance, availability and
Whether used on the JBoss Application Server, another application server or
on its own, JBossCache performs basic functionality such as locking,
replication and transaction management, all of which can be configured.
JBossCache features a tree-structured replicated transactional cache, which
can be used for replication of any plain old Java object (POJO).
Auto-detection of modifications to POJOs substantially cuts down on network
communication, resulting in improved performance and speed. For more

Berkeley DB Java Edition is a high performance, pure Java database featuring
full ACID transactions and recovery for high reliability, record-level
locking for high concurrency, schema neutrality for data storage in its
native format, and zero administration for low cost of ownership. Berkeley
DB Java Edition takes advantage of Java's portability and services such as
deeply integrated threading and NIO. Berkeley DB Java Edition includes full
source code for easier integration and debugging. Berkeley DB Java Edition is
an authorized Java Powered(TM) product technology. For more information about
