NCache 3.8 SP4 released

San Ramon, California - March 22, 2011 - Alachisoft is pleased to announce the release of NCache 3.8 SP4. This new release has some important bug fixes and is a recommended update for all NCache 3.8 users.

In this release, there are some enhancements done as well.

1. String sharing between Java and .NET (vice versa)

NCache distributed caching enables .NET and Java applications to communicate with each other with the help of string sharing. This lets you easily build enterprise applications where you have modules in both Java and .NET but cannot easily share information. For object sharing, you can transform your objects to XML strings and then share them between both platforms.

2. SQL Cache Dependency Custom Queue/Notification Service

NCache now allows you to choose either default mode (with default SQL notification and queue service) or custom mode where you can specify your own queue and notification service.

SQL Cache dependency architecture has been enhanced to support custom queues and notification services that does not require extra user permissions like "create queue" and "create service". In some situations your DBA may not allow users to have these permissions and hence the SQL Dependency will not work. This happens only when you use the default mode where NCache uses the default SQL Notification service and queue which requires these permissions.

In custom mode, you'll be able to use your own queue and notification service with NCache. The service name format should be "NCacheSQLService-[ip-address]" and "NCacheSQLQueue-[ip-address]" where the IP-Address will be of machine on which NCache service process will be running. You can specify this setting in service configuration file "NCache/bin/service/Alachisoft.NCache.Service.exe.config".
