It solves many of the same sorts of challenges that we’re hearing from NoSQL but in somewhat of a less disruptive fashion. The point that James makes in this conversation (around 14:30) is that getting the power of NoSQL while reserving all of the job skills and ecosystem of the traditional database is an attractive proposition for organizations looking to gain the In-Memory performance and scalability advantages as well as modernized developer-friendly APIs of NoSQL. Other discussions include Oracle Licensing practices, Database architecture, the NoSQL movement, cost of architectural replacement, JCache, the Java Renaissance and the role of Java in data and polyglot programming.
