Open Source Cache Solutions in Java

OSCache

OSCache is a widely used, high performance J2EE caching framework. In addition to it's servlet-specific features, OSCache can be used as a generic caching solution for any Java application. A few of its generic features include:

 * Caching of Arbitrary Objects - You are not restricted to caching portions of JSP pages or HTTP requests. Any Java object can be cached.
 * Comprehensive API - The OSCache API gives you full programmatic control over all of OSCache's features.
 * Persistent Caching - The cache can optionally be disk-based, thereby allowing expensive-to-create data to remain cached even across application restarts.
 * Clustering - Support for clustering of cached data can be enabled with a single configuration parameter. No code changes required.
 * Expiry of Cache Entries - You have a huge amount of control over how cached objects expire, including pluggable RefreshPolicies if the default functionality does not meet your requirements.

Java Caching System

JCS is a distributed caching system written in java for server-side java applications. It is intended to speed up dynamic web applications by providing a means to manage cached data of various dynamic natures. Like any caching system, the JCS is most useful for high read, low put applications. Dynamic content and reporting systems can benefit most. However, any site that repeatedly constructs pages, dropdowns, or common search results form a database that is updated at intervals (rather than across categories continuously) can improve performance and scalability by implementing caching. Latency times drop sharply and bottlenecks move away from the database in an effectively cached system.

EHCache

EHCache is a pure Java, in-process cache with the following features: Fast,Simple, Acts as a pluggable cache for Hibernate 2.1., with Small foot print, Minimal dependencies, Fully documented and Production tested.

JCache

JCache Open Source is an effort to make an Open Source version of JSR-107 JCache. Since the JSR-107 hasn&t released any specs for years, This version still builds on the original Functional Specification.

ShiftOne

ShiftOne Java Object Cache is a Java library that implements several strict object caching policies, as well as a light framework for configuring cache behavior.

SwarmCache

SwarmCache is a simple but effective distributed cache. It uses IP multicast to efficiently communicate with any number of hosts on a LAN. It is specifically designed for use by clustered, database-driven web applications. Such applications typically have many more read operations than write operations, which allows SwarmCache to deliver the greatest performance gains. SwarmCache uses JavaGroups internally to manage the membership and communications of its distributed cache.

JBoss Cache

JBoss Cache is a product designed to cache frequently accessed Java objects in order to dramatically improve the performance of e-business applications. By eliminating unnecessary database access, JBoss Cache decreases network traffic and increases the scalability of applications. But JBoss Cache is much more than a simple cache. JBoss Cache provides fully transactional features as well as a highly configurable set of options to deal with concurrent data access in the most efficient manner possible for your application. In addition, it is a clustered cache that replicates contents to other cache instances running on separate JVMs, servers or even entire networks, making JBoss Cache a highly efficient library used by application server developers to implement clustering features.

WhirlyCache

Whirlycache is a fast, configurable in-memory object cache for Java. It can be used, for example, to speed up a website or an application by caching objects that would otherwise have to be created by querying a database or by another expensive procedure

Jofti

Jofti is a simple to use, high-performance object indexing and searching solution for Objects in a Caching layer or storage structure that supports the Map interface. The framework supports EHCache, JBossCache and OSCache and provides for transparent addition, removal and updating of objects in its index as well as simple to use query capabilties for searching. Features include type aware searching, configurable object property indexing, indexing/searching by interfaces as well as support for Dynamic Proxies, primitve attributes, Collections and Arrays

cache4j

cache4j is a cache for Java objects with a simple API and fast implementation. It features in-memory caching, a design for a multi-threaded environment, both synchronized and blocking implementations, a choice of eviction algorithms (LFU, LRU, FIFO), and the choice of either hard or soft references for object storage.

Open Terracotta

Open Terracotta is Open Source Clustering for Java. Features: HTTP Session Replication, Distributed Cache, POJO Clustering, Application Coordination across cluster's JVMs (made using code injection, so you don't need to modify your code)

SHOP.COM Cache System

The SHOP.COM Cache System is an object cache system that...

 * is an in-process cache and external, shared Cache
 * is horizontally scalable
 * stores cached objects to disk
 * supports associative keys
 * is non-transactional
 * can have any size key and any size data
 * does auto-GC based on TTL
 * is container and platform neutral

DirectMemory

DirectMemory is an off-heap cache implementation (a-la BigMemory) to enable in memory serialization of a large number of java objects without affecting jvm garbage collection performance - released under the Apache Software License, Version 2.0
