Gimme Caching - The Distributed JCache(JSR107) Way

A session at Devoxx UK 2015

Thursday 18th June, 2015

5:00pm to 5:50pm (GMT)

Howdy Folks, let me tell you a story.

Once upon a time, we're talking about the year 2001, a few people had an amazing idea. They were thinking about something that would change the world, it would make the world easy and give programmers almost unlimited power! It was simply referred to as JSR 107, one of the least things to change in the future. But these dreamers were way ahead of their time and nothing really happened. So time passed by and by and by and over the years it was buried in the deep catacombs of the JCP. Eventually, in 2011 two brave knights took on the fight and worked themselves through all the riddles, to complete their quest in 2014. You'll know what I'm talking about, they called it the "Java Caching API" or in short "JCache".

A software system cannot possibly be imagined without Caching today and it was time for a standard. No matter if you want to cache database, HTML or results of long running calculations, new systems have to reach a critical mass to be successful. Elevator pitch : JSR107 does for Caching what JDBC did for Database lock-in. Now dev to JSR107 and choose the Caching provider of your choice. Lets take a look together with coding samples.
