While we’re certainly excited about the latest Coherence 12.1.0 release for Coherence 12.1.2 (including the new JVisualVM Plug-In), we’re not leaving the Coherence 3.7.1 developers out!
As part of our continued support for the Coherence Community we recently released Coherence Incubator 11.2.0 (for Coherence 3.7.1). For the most part it’s a patch release – a few defect fixes and an upgrade to use Coherence 3.7.1 patch 10, however there are some big improvements in the way we’ve been doing testing, especially for Push Replication, that of which now incorporates the improvements made in Oracle Tools 1.1.0.
On the back of the Oracle Tools 1.1.0 release, today we released an update to Coherence Incubator – Version 12.1.0. While the change history provides the low-level details, the exciting news is the introduction of the JVisualVM plugin for Oracle Coherence (supporting versions 3.5, 3.6, 3.7 and 12.1.2) – the details of which are available here.
If you are using Oracle Coherence, running Java Development Kit 7 and want to visualize what’s happening in your development environment, this plug-in is for you! Forget JConsole – you need JVisualVM for Coherence. It’s extremely easy to install and easy to use. (btw: you’ve already got JVisualVM installed if you’re using JDK7)
More details about the plug-in installation is now available on the Oracle Coherence Blog.
As usual, comments, feedback, defect reports and feature requests are always welcome on the Coherence Incubator Project.

It’s here! Oracle Coherence Incubator Release 11 has now been finalized and made public. Everyone can now pick up the official Maven builds from maven.java.net or via Maven Central.
Instead of repeating all of the goodies and release details again, I’ll simply refer you to take a look at my recent post. However to save you some time, here are the important new links:

Coherence Community Source Code:
If you’re not using Apache Maven for dependency management, you can still download the signed artifacts manually, including the jars, javadoc and source from Maven Central (which is http://search.maven.org/) Simply search for: “coherence incubator“.
What about Coherence Incubator 10?
Over the next few days, weeks and months our plan is to retire Coherence Incubator 10. During this time we will be encouraging everyone to move over to Coherence Incubator 11. There are a lot of advantages to this (like being able to easily build it yourself).
Importantly we’ve gone to great lengths to ensure that Coherence Incubator 11 is technically the same as Coherence Incubator 10 – if they aren’t that’s a defect – which we should be able to resolve. Basically anyone that’s currently using Coherence Incubator 10 should be able to simply swap the jars (updating the versions of course) and carry on. Of course there are a few differences, but this are scoped to where and how examples are run, together with new documentation.
As we’ve previously done with major releases, the old site, documentation and downloads for Coherence Incubator 10 will still be available. We’re not taking those away. However all new work and defect fixes will only occur in Coherence Incubator 11+ (unless there’s some monumental pressure – and I mean monumental).
