About Terracotta Documentation
This documentation is about Terracotta DSO, an advanced distributed-computing technology aimed at meeting special clustering requirements.
Terracotta products without the overhead and complexity of DSO meet the needs of almost all use cases and clustering requirements. To learn how to migrate from Terracotta DSO to standard Terracotta products, see Migrating From Terracotta DSO. To find documentation on non-DSO (standard) Terracotta products, see Terracotta Documentation. Terracotta release information, such as release notes and platform compatibility, is found in Product Information.

Non-portable classes are not shareable in Terracotta.
There are two types of non-portable classes in Terracotta:
- Never-Portable - these classes represent local resources or other non-shareable classes and are never shared.
- Unsupported - currently these classes are not supported by Terracotta but may be supported in the future.
See the Concept and Architecture Guide for more information on portability in Terracotta.
The following list shows classes that are never shareable. Generally, these classes are not shareable because they are intrinsically associated with a local resource such as a socket, a file descriptor, or a thread:
If your current code base contains references to any of these classes, use the Terracotta setting
honor-transient. This mechanism specifies whether Terracotta should or should not share a field in a class that is marked with the transient keyword.
See the Concept and Architecture Guide for more information on transience in Terracotta.
See the Configuration Guide and Reference for more information on configuring transience in Terracotta.
Current List of Unsupported Classes
The following list shows classes that are not shareable in the current and in earlier versions of Terracotta.
In many cases, the
java.util.concurrent.* classes can be replaced by an equivalent class from the oswego concurrent class library.
