I’ve got some good news for the in-memory data grid aficionados out there! WebSphere eXtreme Scale V188.8.131.52 (WXS) update has just been released, bringing new features and capabilities to your Caching Life. More good news: if you have a WebSphere Application Server entitlement, you can take advantage of these new enhancements right away, at no cost!
Here are my picks for the top three enhancements the WXS V184.108.40.206 update brings.
1. Supports JCache
That’s right. WebSphere eXtreme Scale V220.127.116.11 now supports JCache, which is the industry standard for Java-caching APIs. JCache provides a standard API for developers, allowing you to easily build JCache-compatible applications.
JCache standardizes caching for Java objects in a way that gives you flexible and efficient implementations of distributed caches. Now that WebSphere eXtreme Scale V18.104.22.168 supports JCache, you can make applications that leverage caching portability between caching implementations across your deployment.
2. A new Grid Template Management UI tool
Grid Template Management is a new user-interface (UI) tool in the WebSphere eXtreme Scale Liberty Deployment (XSLD) dashboard console. This tool allows you to upload and create your own customized grid template based on your own WXS configurations.
You can create customized grid instances in XSLD rather than using the previously available basic templates. Why is this important? You get more control and customization. The new tool will build a customized grid template based on what’s in a user’s .XML descriptor files, not a one-size-fits-all template. Then, based on this custom grid template, a user can create their own grid instances.

3. Ubuntu 16 Platform support
Last but not least, WebSphere eXtreme Scale V22.214.171.124 now includes Ubuntu 16 platform support to deliver even better value for your scale-out performance. Ubuntu 16 brings economic and technical scalability to your data center, whether it’s public or private.
