Hibernate Types

by Ahmad Seddighi | November 2009 | Java Open Source

In this article by Ahmad Seddighi, we will discuss the Hibernate types. We will see how Hibernate provides built-in types that map to common database types. We'll also see how Hibernate allows us to implement and use custom types when these built-in types do not satisfy the application's requirements, or when we want to change the default behavior of a built-in type. As you will see, you can easily implement a custom-type class and then use it in the same way as a built-in one.

Integrating Websphere eXtreme Scale Data Grid with Relational Database: Part 1

by Anthony Chaves | November 2009 | Java

WebSphere eXtreme Scale provides a solution to scalability issues through caching and grid technology. A data grid is a means of combining computing resources so as to make a viable middleware layer. By using the partitioning and replication functions we can build a production-worthy application with persistent, reliable, and durable data storage, without ever touching a disk. In this article by Anthony Chaves, we will explore some of the uses of an in-memory data grid. We'll also look at integrating Websphere eXtreme Scale with relational databases.

Integrating a data grid and a database is vital since:

  • reporting tools don't work with data grids right now
  • less frequently used data can be stored on disk
  • our application may need to work with legacy applications
