Set up the embedded global cache for high availability in IBM Integration Bus V10
IBM® Integration Bus V10 applications can load and reference database tables in the embedded global cache, a fast structure stored in an integration server's JVM heap. One drawback of the cache is that the cache data is lost after an integration server crash. Further, the cache is based on a simple key-value structure, a data model that is not sufficient for the complex queries needed in an enterprise context. This article describes how to set up a cache for high availability. It describes two formats that you can use to load data into a cache, and it provides sample ESQL functions for complex cache access.
