SymmetricDS 2.2.0 is a minor release that brings 15 bug fixes, 8 improvements, and 5 new features.  Some highlights include:

  • The incoming data loader was changed to use a single connection to eliminate contention with a nested transaction and reduce the connection pool requirements. 
  • The purge job that cleans up the runtime tables is now three separate jobs that can be scheduled independently.
  • A new query plan is being used to route and batch data changes that is more efficient.

This release also includes a new project organization and reduced library dependencies in preparation for small footprint clients.  We've created a new Mobile Development forum to discuss plans for an upcoming mobile implementation.

The demands of Abercrombie & Fitch’s international expansion goals required new store systems and infrastructure. After selecting Oracle Retail Point-of-Sale (POS) as their new POS platform, A&F sought to eliminate the requirement for a store server in order to reduce per store hardware requirements, centralize infrastructure management and further harden offline capabilities. Abercrombie will be sharing the challenges and solutions for the migration from a store centered client/server architecture to a centralized model that supports a multi-brand, global retail chain.
