Terracotta Distributed Memory Clustering
During our initial server architecture design we researched various ways to handle scaling of a Java server in a clustered environment that is using Hibernate as its persistence layer, and we came across a very powerful technology called Terracotta.
Terracotta essentially extends the Java memory model and concurrency model to multiple distributed JVM’s. This allows you to write your Java applications as a “normal” multithreaded application where some of the “threads” are actually the other distributed JVM processes. Below are some sample technical write ups I did describing Terracotta and it’s potential application to our server architecture.

Software Engineer 10/2007 - 9/2008
Java MMO Client With Guild Wars Server:
I worked on an unannounced project building a java MMO client using the jmonkeyengine which uses OpenGL to implement a scenegraph 3D engine. The client is connected to a modified Guild Wars server through a cross-language messaging system similar to Apache Thrift or Google protocolbuffers.
Java World Builder Tool:
At NCsoft we were building a 3D Java MMO game client, and also we built Worldbuilder tools in Java to allow designers to build different zones for the game. The following is a video demonstrating the capabilities of the Worldbuilder tool written entirely in Java utilizing the jmonkeyengine OpenGL technology.
