Lately I have been talking to partners and customers on older versions of the Oracle Utilities Application Framework and they are considering upgrading to the latest version. One of the major questions they ask is about the role of Oracle Coherence in our architecture. Here are some clarifications:

I flew home yesterday from Karen’s memorial service
in Jacksonville, on a connecting flight through Charlotte. When I landed in Charlotte, I walked with all my stuff from my JAX arrival gate (D7) to my DFW departure gate (B15). The walk was more stressful than usual because the airport was so crowded.
