Interface ExternalCacheAdapter



  • public interface ExternalCacheAdapter
    This is the service provider's interface (SPI) for plugging in an external cache (eg, the AFPA cache, a web server cache, a proxy server cache or a sprayer cache). Each implementation of this interface encapsulates the particular protocol supported by an external cache. The CacheCoordinator calls this interface to manage pages in external caches. It is always called locally.

    Restrictions on JSP fragments cached externally are the following:

    • It must be a top-level fragment (ie, an externally requested page).
    • It must not have any security access restrictions. This restriction can be relaxed if the external cache supports some form of access control.
    • It must not need access statistics gathered. This restriction can be relaxed if the external cache supports some form of statistics gathering.
