A couple of years have passed since we last looked into in-memory caches here at ConSol. In that time a bunch of things have happened:
Probably the most significant thing that happened was that the oldest Java Service Request JSR 107, also known as JCache, finally reached ‘Release’ status. This JSR was a long time in the making taking a whole 13 years since the initial proposal back in 2001.
The existing In-memory caches providers, like Hazelcast, have received a whole host of new features including things like support for distributed transactions, a new Map-Reduce API, interceptors for executing business logic, when the cache entries change, to mention just a few.

See you tomorrow!
Infinispan is included in the JBoss AS 7 distribution as the default second level cache for Hibernate.
For my presentation on the JBoss One Day Talk 2013,
I was looking for the most simple example to be used in a demo.
This post shows how to get Infinispan Hibernate 2nd Level Caching up and running in five minutes.
It should also work with the upcoming WildFly Application Server.
Distributed caches have evolved into an independent branch of Big Data solutions: When it comes to fast read and write access, distributed caches are the solution of choice.
Dr. Fabian Stäber gave a talk a JayDay 2013 where he introduced and compared the leading distributed cache implementations:
Based on a simple example application, the basic functionality is presented, and the specific strengths and weaknesses of the different cache architectures are highlighted and compared.
