Overview

The Coherence Eclipse Plugin provides various features to help developer productivity when working with Coherence.

Currently this plugin supports the following features:

  • Coherence POF Plugin - Provides a development time instrumentation of classes with the PortableType annotation to generate consistent (and correct) implementations of Evolvable POF serialization methods.

See the official Portable Type documentation for more details on writing portable types in Coherence.
