Spring is a popular lightweight dependency injection and aspect oriented development container and framework for Java. It reduces the overall complexity of J2EE development and provides high cohesion and loose coupling. Because of the benefits Spring provides, it is used by a lot of developers for creating high traffic small to enterprise level applications. Here…

Hibernate is an Object-Relational Mapping library for Java language. It provides you mapping from Java classes to database table and reduces the overall development cycle. Because of benefits Hibernate provides, more and more high transactional applications are developed using Hibernate. Here is an example of Hibernate in a Java application. But, these high traffic Hibernate…

Distributed caching has become a very important part of any high transaction application in order to ensure that the database does not become a scalability bottleneck. But, since a distributed cache keeps a copy of your application data, you must always ensure that it is kept synchronized with your database. Without this, the distributed cache…

Serialization transforms an object into a byte-stream so it can be moved out of a process either for persistence or to be sent to another process. And de-serialization is the reverse process that transforms a byte-stream back into an object. And, unlike a stand-alone cache, a distributed cache must serialize objects so it can send…

Entity Framework is an object-relational mapping engine that provides abstraction from underlying relational database and therefore greatly simplifies development. Because of these benefits, more and more data-centric and high transactional applications and services are developed with Entity Framework. But, these high traffic applications are facing scalability problems. Although the application-tier level is scalable, their database…

Distributed caching is becoming really popular among developers of high transaction applications because it improves your application’s performance and scalability. And, this popularity means that developers are caching more and more data in it which they also want to be able to search just like they are able to search relational databases. But, one major…

Distributed Caching has become a popular way of improving .NET application performance and scalability. That is why developers are caching more and more data in distributed cache. However along with this come a few challenges. One important challenge is to ensure that data in the cache is always synchronized with the database. This is because…

If your ASP.NET application only has a few users, you probably don’t care how fast or slow it is and it is probably giving you pretty good performance anyway. But, as you add more load to your ASP.NET application, the chances are quite high that ASP.NET performance will drop significantly. It might even grind to…

Distributed cache is becoming very popular because it is a powerful way to boost your application performance and scalability and handle extreme transaction load without slowing down. Both .NET and Java applications are using it more and more each day. But, one challenge people face with distributed cache is how to map and store relational…
