A must have book to buy in understanding Terracotta Best Practices,I personally was an early adopter and has had much success, Terracotta has proven over the years to help ease the development of HA systems, that scale from the start...this book has real world examples (not just Hello Worlds! Programs) ..to build and deploy systems backed by Terracotta for your enterprise.

Format: Paperback
This book really presents an in-depth coverage of the power of Terracotta, backed by real world how-to examples.

The only thing that could be better is the language. Sometimes the concept is explained in a very dense language upfront, so by the time you get to the example, you get a little lost and need to go back and re-read some paragraphs.

Besides that, it's one of those examples where the content compensates the shape. A must have if you are looking forward to turning you application into a clustered solution.

Adequate coverage of the Terracotta technology. Lackluster writing, poor examples. There are many many complications and minefields to using this wonderful technology in practice, and this book skips lightly over them.

The training courses at Terracotta offices are HIGHLY recommended, if you can afford them. You may then use this book and the online docs as a useful supplement. Be aware that much in the book or online docs is rapidly made obsolete or misleading given the quick evolution of the code.

Even if you don't want to utilize Terracotta, this book is still extremely informative about virtual heap, distributed caching and clustering concept. However, once you get to read what Terracotta is about and what problems it tries to solve, you will probably realize why and how to utilize this gem in your application. The book is an easy read, it's very informative, covers Hibernate and Spring integration, talks about HTTP session caching and more.
