Red Hat JBOSS Data Grid

We're excited to announce the availability of Red Hat JBoss Data Grid (JDG) Version 7.1.
Thanks and congratulations to the JDG engineering and product management team for this release.

JDG 7.1 release focuses on the following areas:

  1. Performance enhancements
  2. Apache Spark 2.x integration
  3. Several other enhancements

The following new features were added in support of these themes:

Release Highlights

  • Performance enhancements
    JDG 7.1 features core performance improvements, especially in clustered write operations. Current tests have shown up to 60% increase in write throughput under load.
  • HTTP session externalization from JBoss Web Server (Tomcat) and Spring Session support
    JDG 7.1 features the ability to externalize HTTP sessions from JBoss Web Server (JWS) node to a remote JDG cluster. This helps make the JWS layer stateless and enables a rolling update of the application layer while retrieving the session data from the JDG layer. Additionally, JDG 7.1 features Spring Session support, which enables you to externalize HTTP session from a Spring (or Spring Boot) deployment to a remote JDG cluster.
  • Apache Spark 2.x integration
    JDG 7.0 introduced a Resilient Distributed Dataset (RDD) and Discretized Stream (DStream) integration with Apache Spark version 1.6.  JDG 7.1 adds a new connector for Apache Spark v2.x.
  • Remote Querying enhancements
    JDG 7.1 introduces a new string-based querying language, Ickle, as Technology Preview, which enables you to specify combinations of relational and full-text predicates (based on Apache Lucene). This enhances the querying feature-set available in Client-Server mode by bringing several additional operations that were previously available only in Library mode.
  • Administration Console for standalone Server deployments
    JDG 7.1 enables you to update and save applicable node-level configurations via the Administration Console when JDG Server is used in Standalone mode. Atomic clustered operations are unavailable via the Administration Console in standalone mode, these require JDG Server deployed in Domain Mode as in JDG 7.0.
  • RPM distribution for Hot Rod C++ client
    JDG 7.1 distributes and supports the Hot Rod C++ clients for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 6 and 7 as RPMs, instead of ZIP archives.
  • Feature enhancements to Hot Rod Java, C++, C#, and Node.js clients, as outlined in Release Notes
