Packt is pleased to announce the release of their latest eBook, Instant Effective Caching with Ehcache.

Ehcache is a standards-based cache that helps to boost performance while providing many facilities such as in-memory data management.

About the Author

Daniel Wind is a software architect from Costa Rica, who is passionate about coding and implementing scientific paradigms to achieve innovative solutions. He is an advocate of Java technology as the industry's "new Cobol", in the sense that Java Enterprise and the de facto solutions available solve almost all business problems. He has worked for many companies, helping them by providing architecture consultancy as well as software engineering, especially in the mobile space industry.

Effective Caching with Ehcache aims to highlight the answers to many questions surrounding Ehcache which are still confined to a few highly experienced professionals of the developer’s world. The book is filled with examples, and each recipe is assisted by source code that explains how Ehcache works in a real Java application.

Effective Caching with Ehcache begins with a simple recipe that shows readers the scenarios where Ehcache could be used. Readers will then understand the basic concepts of caching and Ehcache configuration through practical discussions. Through the course of the book, readers will learn how to improve the performance of an application and its cache. Hands-on examples help readers to extend the capabilities of users' caching layers on building smart DAOs, and enabling and exploiting the Ehcache statistics. By the end of the book, readers will be able to confidently choose the right configuration for their application while implementing Ehcache in a clustered environment.

The global learning from this book includes the implementation and configuration of the Ehcache library, managing events and exceptions using the Ehcache Events API, integrating Ehcache with Spring and Hibernate, the distribution of Ehcache using Web Services, and caching local transactions with Ehcache.

This book is ideal for people who are looking for an Ehcache integration reference guide and want to get a good background in its fundamental core functionality. It is assumed that readers have some experience with Java. Prior knowledge of Ehcache is not a requirement.
