Source and Documentation Contributors

Global and Cross-Module Changes

  • Refactored all of the modules into a single source tree, with separate folders for each module and their associated examples.

  • Restructured all of the modules follow standard Apache Maven conventions.

  • Completely re-wrote the build system to use Apache Maven instead of Apache Ant.

  • Ratified and released all of the modules under a standard open source license (CDDL). This included changing all file headers to use standard CDDL headers. Templates for these headers are available in the "documents" folder.

  • Formalized the mechanism and process for accepting contributions.

  • Completely migrated the existing "closed" Atlassian Confluence-based documentation to be part of the source tree, thus enabling contributions. This included re-writing and updating parts of the documentation for this release. The documentation can be found in the coherence-incubator-site module.

  • Rationalized all modules to use a single Coherence Incubator version number instead of individual version numbers.

  • Migrated the source repository to GitHub.

  • Migrated the Issue Tracking to

  • Introduced "uber" jar generation support to produce the entire Oracle Coherence Incubator in a single jar.

  • Introduced (extracted) individual "example" modules for the patterns instead of using a single large example module.

  • Introduced a dependency on the Oracle Tools project for tests. Re-wrote all process-based tests to use this package. This work was originally part of the Oracle Coherence Incubator but is now a separate project. This work now includes signficiant contributions from the "Grid Man" project (developed by Jonathan Knight).

  • Upgraded projects to use Oracle Coherence

  • Migrated binary distribution mechanism to use instead of download links.


  • Introduced the ability to generate a coherence-incubator-all-x.y.z.jar that contains all of the Oracle Coherence Incubator compiled modules without third-party libraries and without Oracle Coherence itself. This allows developers to use a single jar file in applications instead of having to specify individual jars.
