Infinispan 5.2.0.ALPHA2 was released last Friday with several additions for those that like to test Infinispan's bleeding edge capabilities. In this case, it's out Map/Reduce functionality that's the star of the show:
- A combiner can now be used between the Map and Reduce phases
- Reduce phase can now be distributed
- Map/Reduce now processes entries in cache stores too
Vladimir Blagojevic, one of our Infinispan developers, will be explaining all about these features in a blog post coming right up, so stay tuned! :)
Finally Adrian Nistor, the latest addition to the Infinispan team, has been working on reducing the size of our distribution files by avoiding duplication of jars.
