Terracotta seems an interesting option for clustering java aplications. Although very limited in comparison with GigaSpaces, it's open source and the fact it manipulates your bytecode at the JVM level might make it really simple for developers deploy distributed apps.

I should also take a deeper look at the asm project - very cool!


TuneWiki is powered by GigaSpaces and an overview of the architecture can be seen here.

Stay tuned :)


When in the chronicle of wasted time
I see descriptions of the fairest wights,
And beauty making beautiful old rhyme,
In praise of ladies dead and lovely knights,
Then, in the blazon of sweet beauty's best,
Of hand, of foot, of lip, of eye, of brow,
I see their antique pen would have express'd
Even such a beauty as you master now.
So all their praises are but prophecies
Of this our time, all you prefiguring;
And for they looked but with divining eyes,
They had not skill enough your worth to sing:
For we, which now behold these present days,
Have eyes to wonder, but lack tongues to praise.

-- Shakespeare
