I'm trying to get an answer on the question of whether there is likely to be a TIM for JBoss 7.x in the near future so that we can continue to use Terracotta DSO for our use case.
Previously in a separate thread it was suggested we consider express mode as this avoids instrumentation and associated container issues, however for us it will require re-coding to conform to the express model. For example, we would rely on cluster-wide locking and object identity throughout our usage - i.e no additional API's, just simple java synchronisation... and TC performs the magic - A massive benefit to the DSO approach to us and I presume many others.
I know that express provides a locking API, but this is a large step away from the original architectural intents of the Terracotta platform as I understood them.
I'd appreciate it, if someone could let me know what if any plans there are for a JBoss 7.x TIM or alternately if terracotta are on a path to de-support DSO usage in containers going forward in favour of the express approach?
