  1. Which Caching system is better? (1 messages)

    I wanted to implement a caching system in my application to improve the performance.
    My current resources to be cached are:
    1. Database (master tables, frequently used query results).
    2. Mappings from xml file.
    3. Data from txt files.

    Limitations:
    1.Should be using only tomcat web container, no app server.
    2.Cluster level updation of the cache.
    3.The cacheable resources may be updated from different application.
    4.Looking for open source.

    If a system is not supporting clustering, how can I achieve it on myself?
    please suggest me, the one which is more likely suitable for my usage?

    thanks in advance.

    Hi Arvind,

    From what I understand from your requirements, you require a free (Open source)caching service to be used in your webapp with constraint of using only a web container.
    Heres a good cache service - http://www.opensymphony.com/oscache/ . I have seen this being used in a very huge J2EE financial project, so you can safely use it.

    Cheers
