Infinispan Spark connector 0.2 released!

The connector allows the Infinispan Server to become a data source for Apache Spark, for both batch jobs and stream processing, including read and write.

In this release, the highlight is the addition of two new operators to the RDD that support filtering using native capabilities of Infinispan. The first one is filterByQuery:

The second operator was introduced to replace the previous configuration based filter factory name, and was extended to support arbitrary parameters:

The connector has also been updated to be compatible with Spark 1.5.2 and Infinispan 8.1.0.Final.

For more details including full list of changes and download info please visit the Connectors Download section.  The project Github contains up-to-date info on how to get started with the connector, also make sure to try the included docker based demo. To report any issue or to request new features, use the new dedicated issue tracker. We'd love to get your feedback!

Infinispan 8.1.0.Final is out!

Dear all,

We are proud to announce the release of Infinispan 8.1.0.Final, codenamed “Mahou”, the culmination of four months of active development.

This release brings many enhancements but most of all we would like to highlight the new Infinispan Web Management Console which is finally ready for prime time. We have gone through quite a few iterations in UI/UIX design to make sure the majority of use case scenarios are covered. In 8.2 release we are going to add further enhancements to configuring and managing endpoints, server tasks, cache containers and others. Until then, have a look, try it out and do not forget to provide us with your feedback. As a teaser, we provide you with the following video showcasing the new admin console.

Discover all the cool new features here or read the full release notes here. You can get this release from our download page as usual. If you are new to Infinispan you can learn how to use it and help us continually improve it.

Enjoy and stay tuned for more posts covering the new features!

The Infinispan team
