Introduction Many applications fail to be efficient due to: a huge number of unnecessary database calls, network traffic between the application itself and the database server, retrieving and loading the same resources from different servers or third party applications.
EhCache “Ehcache is an open source, standards-based cache used to boost performance, offload the database and simplify scalability. Ehcache is robust, proven and full-featured and this has made it the most widely-used Java-based cache. It can scale from in-process with one or more nodes through to a mixed in-process/out-of-process configuration with terabyte-sized caches.”
EhCache The main key features are: - Fast and Light Weight - Scalable - Flexible - Support cache-wide or Element-based expiry policies - Provides LRU, LFU and FIFO cache eviction policies - Standards Based - Extensible - Application Persistence - Supports Listeners - JMX Enabled - Distributed - Support for replication via RMI, JGroups, JMS or Terracotta - Java EE and Applied Caching - High Quality
