Dear Infinispan community,
Infinispan 12 development release 03 is here!
Cross Site Replication
With the new asynchronous cross-site replication algorithm introduced in Infinispan 11, this release brings a long desired feature: conflict resolution.
It is possible to configure a merge policy where, in case of conflict between updates of different sites, the value can be merged. Some predefined merge policies can be found here.
See the docs for more information about conflict resolution.
Another small improvement has been made to cross-site replication in this release. When sites get requests targeting caches that don’t exist or aren’t started, sender sites stop retrying the requests, which takes the backup location offline. Administrators must then bring the sites back online and perform state transfer to sync possible out-of-date data.
This version includes a new version of the web console, including mainly fixes, but also the ability to filter between Strong and Weak counters and to remove counters from the list.
Our documentation has been updated with some additional content as well as improvements for clarity and technical accuracy, notably: * Infinispan Operator Guide * Server Guide * Guide to Cross-Site Replication * Security Guide
As always, the Infinispan team hope you find the documentation useful and complete. We’d love to hear from you and really value feedback from our community. If you think something is missing from the docs or spot a correction, please get in touch and we’ll get on it straight away.
