This technical description has highlighted many features of Cache Portal II using an e-commerce site built using some of most popular components on the market, such as Oracle DBMS and BEA web logic. This chapter explores a real and useful application of integrating database and Web technologies. Cache Portal II Beta version is currently available for J2EE compliant application servers and most commercial DBMSs running on Linux, Unix, and Window 2000/XP. Wide-area database replication technologies and the availability of data centers allow database copies to be distributed across the network. This requires a complete ecommerce web site suite to be distributed along with the database replicas. A major advantage of this approach is, like the caches, the possibility of serving dynamic content from a location close to the users, reducing network latency.
